Parents and Toddlers in Groups demonstrates the particular challenges of the toddler phase and its contribution to an individual's future development and relationships. --
This book will be a valuable resource for practitioners wanting to reach parents and young children in community, educational and a variety of other settings. It will also appeal to child psychotherapists and psychologists working in CAMHS teams. --Book Jacket.
