Within a developmental framework, this book guides the clinician to understand the different types of problems that parents have with infants and to determine how a given family might best be served--whether by addressing health concerns that are affecting infant behavior, modifying parental beliefs or expectations, or improving key caregiving skills. Leading interdisciplinary experts detail their respective therapeutic models in a practical, clinician-friendly format, including intervention guidelines and illustrative case material. Special topics covered include working with families of infants with special needs and with those at risk for child maltreatment.

The book is a definitive guide to techniques of prevention and intervention, and it is exemplary in its combination of readability and clinical sophistication... Essential reading not only for those psychotherapists working with parents and infants, but also for the many others whose technique is influenced by contemporary understandings of early relationships. - Peter Fonagy, University College London; This is an important and thought-provoking book that carries the field of infant mental health to a new level of synthesis and discovery.
