Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book should be required reading for administrators and staff in all restrictive facilities—therapeutic schools, inpatient units, residential facilities, and juvenile detention centers—and for the parents who must entrust their children to these facilities." —Ross W. Greene, PhD, author, The Explosive Child

Format: Paperback
I expected to devour this book in a marathon reading session when it arived, as a staunch believer in Ross Green's Collaborative Problem Solving approach and a friend of the author. Instead, I have been reading it slowly and carefully, savoring the proof that positive change can happen in even the most entrenched systems. I am so impressed by what this team of professionals did, for the benefit of the neediest of children. This book should be required reading for those among us who have ever wondered if there was a better way to do things. It is so easy to read about a new philosophy, and quite another to put it into action. I am awed by what this team did, and hopeful that it will serve as an inspiration to others. Diane L. Maxson, MHA, MS, OTR/L

I have been anticipating this book since I first heard it was being written. It surpasses my expectations. Kathy Regan shares the journey of her hospital; a journey towards compassionate and effective healing of troubled children. She is honest and open about the difficulties she encountered. With imagination and passion, she leads a culture change and paradigm shift that will soon become the gold standard for child mental health.

Very informative and helpful. We have had our staff read this book and have been able to help many children with this process. It is very easy to read, understand and implement!

It is time for modern humane treatment of children in psychiatric hospitals and Kathy did it and did it with Science behind her! Her book walks you thru her unit's transition to quality care!

I am working on a similar project and found this book of immeasurable help.
Knowing that there are others who care about inpatient psychiatric units being a compassionate
and caring environment has helped me hang in there when the going gets rough.
Well written, almost a manual for improving inpatient psychiatry and nursing practice.
