The model presented in this book focuses on ways to integrate child assessment and treatment with that of their parents’ and families’ level of function. It uses the authors’ unique concept of the Zones of Care to help clinicians assess this level of function.  In turn, each of the four zones leads to a specific approach to treatment. The authors present how these treatment approaches to current internalizing and externalizing disorders in children and adolescents allow clinicians to integrate a wide variety of techniques to address most DSM-IV categories. Their approach stresses both symptom reduction and the cultivation of coping skills.  It also integrates fiscal issues of treatment into the development of the alliance with the parents in resolving the presenting problem. Dr. Ziegler and Dr. Bush present the reader with practical, workable strategies for laying down strong diagnostic foundations for successful treatment, making Paving the Way for Children’s Success a valuable resource for any clinician working with children and adolescents.
