Dr. Haen’s latest book has been released! Co-edited with Seth Aronson, the Handbook of Child and Adolescent Group Therapy is the field’s first comprehensive, multidisciplinary textbook to cover this topic. The book is a foundational text that covers everything from the nuts and bolts of group work, to surveying major approaches from classic to modern, to considering group work in a variety of settings, to discussing targeted applications to a wide variety of child and adolescent populations. Here’s what some luminaries in the field had to say about the book:
“This excellent book can ensure that the power of social influence is harnessed for the best motives. A remarkable collection of the most creative minds in this area comprehensively covering an exciting clinical field.” —Peter Fonagy, Freud Memorial professor of psychoanalysis, UCL; Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, London, UK.
“The breadth and depth of this superb handbook is staggering. Quite often, a reference guide covers much ground but lacks texture. Not so with Handbook of Child and Adolescent Group Therapy. Haen and Aronson have assembled a treasure trove of classical and modern thinking for group building and addressing contemporary issues that young people face.” —Andrew Malekoff, MSW, executive director and CEO of North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center; editor-in-chief, Social Work with Groups, a journal of community and clinical practice
“In 40 chapters and five major sections this book contains everything anybody would want to know about group work!! It is a major contribution to the literature!”—Nancy Boyd Webb, DSW, LICSW, RPT-S, university distinguished professor of Social Work Emerita, Fordham University
“Handbook of Child and Adolescent Group Therapy: A Practitioner’s Reference should be on every therapist’s bookshelf.” —Matthew D. Selekman, MSW, LCSW, director, Partners for Collaborative Solutions
