The authors share a specific framework with concrete steps to help educators become positive change makers in the field of early care and education. Complete with resources, tools, and questions for reflection, this handbook takes readers through four progressive paths toward becoming an architect of change: Analysis, when confronting seemingly insurmountable situations, instead of being overwhelmed, think and reflect about the situation and discover hidden insights; Advance, better understand the nature of problems while also strengthening your vision and identity through planning and preparation; Act, begin with everyday challenges and use what you know from every situation, in every interaction with a child, parent, peer, or administrator; and Accelerate, focus on what you want to change, gather allies, document, and communicate.

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.
