Assessment of Parenting Competency in Mothers with Mental Illness. Teresa Ostler, $38.95

The stakes are undeniably high when it comes to deciding whether a mother with mental illness can raise her child in a safe, nurturing environment. Now, mental health professionals will have sound assessment strategies that fairly evaluate the parenting competency of mothers with a wide range of mental illnesses, from "baby blues" to schizophrenia.

Going beyond measuring only the mother's degree of mental illness, the safety of the environment, or the rate of child development, this groundbreaking resource integrates multiple approaches so that professionals understand the full picture of parenting competency. With this much-needed resource, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and child welfare professionals will be primed to conduct more accurate assessments, make informed decisions, build stronger mother-child relationships, and facilitate family preservation whenever possible.

Collaborating with Parents to Reduce Children's Behavior Problems: a Book for Therapists Using the Incredible Years® Program. Carolyn Webster-Stratton, $42.95

This important book has a unique approach with two areas of focus. First, it allows parents to tell their stories: sharing what it is like to have a “problem” child as well as the long and painful route to finding support and recovery through parent and child training. The book also elucidates in detail the “collaborative process” of therapists working together with families. This process combines the knowledge and expertise of the clinician with the unique strengths, perspectives, culture and goals of parents.

As active partners in the therapy process, parents learn parenting strategies to cope effectively with their child and strengthen their relationship as well as build support networks. Examples of when and how to add adjunct therapies such as child and teacher training are also discussed, providing a comprehensive guide for the collaborative process for therapists using the Incredible Years programs.


Developmental Parenting: a Guide for Early Childhood Practitioners. Lori Roggman, Lisa Boyce & Mark Innocenti, $45.95

When parents are warm, responsive, encouraging, and communicative — the key elements of developmental parenting — they lay the foundation for young children's school readiness, social competence, and mental health. That's why every early childhood professional needs this comprehensive, practical guide to building a developmental parenting program for the families they serve.

Unlike other approaches that limit parents to a "student" role, the proven parenting-focused model in this book shows home visitors how to put parents and other caregivers confidently in charge of guiding and supporting their young children's development. With this research-based and reader-friendly book, early childhood professionals will learn to put parents in charge of guiding their child's development — resulting in strong parent-child bonds, healthy families, and improved school readiness.


Early Intervention with Multi-Risk Families: an Integrative Approach. Sarah Landy & Rosanne Menna, $60.50

Helping families who live in environments with multiple risk factors — including poverty, domestic violence, teen parenthood, mental illness, and substance abuse — requires that professionals and paraprofessionals work together to provide the best possible interventions. This much-needed book shows service providers how to help these multi-risk families by using an integrative model that brings together the most effective intervention techniques from a variety of theoretical approaches, parenting strategies, and innovative programs. Professionals will learn how to effectively engage parents if they are resistant to intervention, and they'll discover specific, practical ways to help parents:

  • become more self reflective about their parenting and empathetic toward their children
  • examine and gain control over their defenses and ways of dealing with stress that are negatively influencing their parenting
  • strengthen their sense of competence and social support
  • develop positive perceptions of their children
  • deal with unresolved loss and trauma
  • enhance their interactions with their children
  • regulate their own emotions and those of their children

Fathering: Promoting Positive Father Involvement. Edited by Annie Devault, Gilles Forget & Diane Dubeau, $29.95

In the past few decades, researchers and practitioners have moved away from the idea of fatherhood as a single, monolithic concept. Examining the challenges of vulnerable fathers such as those in poverty or in prison, they have developed valuable new strategies for cultivating the positive involvement of fathers in the lives of their children.

Drawing on the innovative work of Prospère, a Quebec organization that brought together fathers, university researchers, and health and social service practitioners, Fathering details innovative approaches that support positive father involvement. It provides numerous examples of strategies and interventions with fathers, lessons learned from these practices on how to better support vulnerable fathers and families, and in-depth information on ways of designing, implementing, evaluating, and disseminating the results of participatory action research (PAR) — a methodology which put fathers at the heart of the project’s decision-making.


The Gardener and the Carpenter: What the New Science of Child Development Tells Us about the Relationship Between Parents and Children. Alison Gopnik, $37.00

Caring deeply about our children is part of what makes us human. Yet the thing we call "parenting" is a surprisingly new invention. In the past thirty years, the concept of parenting and the multibillion dollar industry surrounding it have transformed child care into obsessive, controlling, and goal-oriented labor intended to create a particular kind of child and therefore a particular kind of adult. In The Gardener and the Carpenter, the pioneering developmental psychologist and philosopher Alison Gopnik argues that the familiar 21st-century picture of parents and children is profoundly wrong — it's not just based on bad science, it's bad for kids and parents, too.

Drawing on the study of human evolution and her own cutting-edge scientific research into how children learn, Gopnik shows that although caring for children is profoundly important, it is not a matter of shaping them to turn out a particular way. Children are designed to be messy and unpredictable, playful and imaginative, and to be very different both from their parents and from each other. The variability and flexibility of childhood lets them innovate, create, and survive in an unpredictable world. “Parenting" won't make children learn — but caring parents let children learn by creating a secure, loving environment.


How to Listen So Parents Will Talk & Talk So Parents Will Listen. John Sommers-Flanagan & Rita Sommers-Flanagan, $46.00

Embracing the uniqueness of every parent, family situation, and practitioner, HOW TO LISTEN SO PARENTS WILL TALK AND TALK SO PARENTS WILL LISTEN helps professionals address the parent-child problems that families often find puzzling or challenging and for which they seek support and guidance.

The book features many specific interventions and methods for helping parents implement developmentally appropriate and scientifically supported strategies for building healthy parent-child relationships and working through the most common conflicts encountered in families and will help you develop positive relationships with parents so that constructive two-way dialogue can be established. Even the most difficult and resistant parents can be successfully engaged through the helpful strategies, advice, and tools found in this practical guide.

The Incredible Years: a Trouble-Shooting Guide for Parents of Children Aged 2-8 Years. Carolyn Webster-Stratton, $30.95

All children misbehave for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it's simply to test how far they can go or to get the attention they crave. Other children are temperamentally more difficult to parent than others because they are impulsive, or hyperactive, inattentive, or delayed in some aspect of their development. This invaluable handbook provides parents with guidelines not only to help prevent behavior problems from occurring but also with strategies to promote children's social, emotional, and academic competence.

Little Volcanoes: Helping Young Children and Their Parents to Deal with Anger. Warwick Pudney & Éliane Whitehouse, $30.95

Young children can erupt like little volcanoes when they are feeling angry. It can be overwhelming and difficult to deal with, and can produce angry feelings in the parent or caregiver too.

This book is packed with advice and strategies for those working with children under five on how to understand and manage anger in children, and how to help their parents or caregivers to deal with anger. The authors outline the different reasons children may feel angry so that their emotions can be fully understood, and offer strategies to combat negative feelings and minimize outbursts. These include putting in place behavioural boundaries and helping a child to feel secure. Simple activities and exercises are also given to help children and adults to express their anger positively. In addition, a selection of poems and stories will help adults to pass on the lessons of the book to children.

Parenting After the Death of a Child: a Practitioner's Guide. Jennifer Buckle & Stephen Fleming, $63.95

The death of a child has a tremendous and overwhelming impact on parents and siblings, completely altering the psychological landscape of the family. In the aftermath of such a tragedy, parents face the challenge of not only dealing with their own grief, but also that of their surviving children. How can someone attempt to cease parenting a deceased child while maintaining this role with his/her other children? Is it possible for a mother or father to effectively deal with feelings of grief and loss while simultaneously helping their surviving children?

Parenting After the Death of a Child addresses this complex and daunting dilemma. Following on the heels of a qualitative research study that involved interviewing bereaved parents, both fathers and mothers, Buckle and Fleming have put together several different stories of loss and recovery to create an invaluable resource for clinicians, students, and grieving parents. The authors present the experience of losing a child and its subsequent impact on a family in a novel and effective way, demonstrating the strength and importance of their book for the counseling field.

Parenting and Theory of Mind. Scott Miller, $73.95

Parenting and Theory of Mind represents the conjunction of two major research literatures in child psychology. One is longstanding. The question of how best to rear children has been a central topic for psychology ever since psychology began to develop as a science. The other research literature is a good deal younger, though quickly expanding. Theory of mind (ToM) has to do with understanding of the mental world — what people (children in particular) know or think about mental phenomena such as beliefs, desires, and emotions.

Where do children's ToM abilities come from? In particular, how do children's experiences shape their development? If we know the formative experiences that underlie ToM, then we may be able to optimize this important aspect of development for all children. The last 15 or so years have seen a rapid expansion of the literature on the social contributors to ToM, including hundreds of studies directed to various aspects of parenting. These studies have made clear that parents can be important contributors to what their children understand about the mental world. This is the first book to comprehensively bring together the literature on ToM and parenting, summarizing what we know about how parenting contributes to one of the most important outcomes in cognitive development and outlining future directions for research in this growing area.

It brings readers to the frontier of developmental research, unlocking the fascinating scientific discoveries currently hidden away in academic tomes and scholarly journals. Above all, SCIENTIFIC PARENTING explains why parenting really matters and how parents' smallest actions can transform their children's lives.
