July 2019—Does Time Heall All?

July's featured book is Does Time Heal All? Exploring Mental Health in the First Three Years by Miri Keren, MD. This book seeks to debunk the idea that all troubling behaviors arising in early childhood will simply “pass with time,” asserting instead that every effort should be made to attempt diagnosis and treatment of truly abnormal issues early in life, while the baby’s brain is still flexible and malleable. Not a guide, nor an ordinary textbook, Does Time Heal All? weaves together complex case and treatment descriptions that focus specifically on the interplay between genetic, biological, psychological, and cultural variables present both in the child and his or her environment. Purchase the book from the ZERO TO THREE Bookstore and start reading!

August 2019—Focusing on Relationships—An Effort That Pays

With a foreword by former Director of the Infant-Parent Program, Jeree H. Pawl, PhD, this book is an indispensable tool for all mental health professionals who work with infants and toddlers and their families as they traverse the nuanced reality of relationship-based intervention. Developed by licensed clinical family therapist Maria Seymour St. John, the Parent–Child Relationship Competencies (PCRCs) are a set of capacities that emerge spontaneously under ordinary circumstances, but which may be strained, impaired, or absent when something is wrong. PCRC-focused clinical assessment offers a clear path to relationship-based case formulation, treatment planning, documentation, and billing that readily conforms with the requirements of standard systems of care.
