When teachers are not precise in their communication, use idioms, or use sarcasm, children don't learn, or, worse, they experience confusion or embarrassment because they don't know what to do. This new edition of Use Your Words is infused with current research on communicating with young children and their families. The text considers change and current culture in the United States as it affects language and little ones in the context of 2017, while respecting universal pieces that continue to be helpful. The new edition includes new and expanded examples viewed through a cultural, contextual, and chronological lens; a discussion of how today's media affects young children, especially exposure to traumatic events around the world; and consideration of the impact of social media, cell phones, and texting on family life and public education. It also addresses how to help young children whose home language is not English and respect differing parental expectations as we move from one socioeconomic or cultural group to the next.

Many resources exist for helping parents find and select a psychotherapist for their child. However, when a child is recommended for therapy, parents are often left with little information beyond the initial referral. Parents who are unfamiliar with the process might be confused on how to proceed, or be wary of therapy stereotypes. You and Your Child's Psychotherapy demystifies the way therapy works, helping parents enter the process as a partner, and giving their child and family the best chance for success. Weiner and Gallo-Silver guide parents through the steps of therapy, emphasizing their vital role and how they can contribute to the success of their child's treatment. With the end goal of creating a partnership between parents and therapists, You and Your Child's Psychotherapy provides a practical and easy-to-follow roadmap to the progression of therapy, helping parents become more involved, and teaching them what to expect. This book is empowering for all parents, guardians, and primary caregivers across the diverse composition of modern families.
