Format: Paperback
Dr. Reznick offers very inspiring and practical tools you can teach your child or yourself for self-soothing, anger management, and coping with the ups and downs of daily living. What I like most is that she goes directly to how to use the methods and doesn't waste time like most authors who somehow feel the need to drag readers through 50-100 pages of speculation on the brain's mechanisms before they (sometimes) deliver the useful tools. Each tool is explained easily and also what to do if it doesn't work immediately with your particular child. What a gift for all of us who have very creative and very intense children.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Reznick's book, "The Power of Your Child's Imagination is such a perfect book for any school counselor.
I work with the lowest performing children in the Los Angeles School District and am always searching for tools to help these children and their parents. I know they need a safe, calm, peaceful environment to help them understand the pain, grief, loss and trauma that so many experience to have a more successful and thriving emotional and academic life. So many of these children experience ADD/ADHD like symptoms as well as being so angry and acting out at home and in the classroom. I strive to bring activities and games to heighten or stimulate their imagination and to give them as many stress-free and calming moments. This book is a veritable plethora of amazing interventions that are so needed for these children and their parents. It is like I thought to myself everything I have been thinking and dreaming about that would help these kids....and Dr. Reznick put it all into words that are so reader-friendly! Brava Charlotte...Just what I needed to start my school year!
I will share it with all my colleagues and friends,
Sherri Jaye LMFT, PSA and Chairperson of LAUSD's Resource Fair

After trying everything to help my son with his stress, I finally found a solution in the techniques this book offers. My son and I have been working on them and we have seen almost instant improvement. This book reminded me that my son has all the strength within his imagination to help him with his difficulties. A must have for any parent that wishes to help his or her child.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Beth Greer on November 21, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is an invaluable book, filled with easy to use tools to empower your child. As soon as I introduced the tools to my 12-year-old daughter, she became engaged and lit up about the power she has inside her to help her in life. She can now dialogue with her inner wisdom. I'm so grateful to Charlotte Reznick for writing such an incredibly empowering book. It's a blessing to have children know how to use these skills at a young age. I didn't learn them until I was an adult.

I love this book. My daughter now has life skills she can use to give her confidence to make great choices, calm her when she's stressed, and navigate all the decisions she will have to make as she enters her teen years.

I found this book to be very personable and user friendly. As a mother of four young children and a Clinical Social Worker, I would highly recommend this book to my peers and colleagues. It is a useful tool to help children and teens with stress management techniques. I especially enjoyed Dr. Reznick's personal accounts throughout the book, and found it to be both an enjoyable and informative read.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Chuck and Patti Leviton - Synergy Seminars on September 25, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Guided Imagery is a relaxation process and a gentle, nonjudgmental approach to therapy, that provides instant access to the unconscious, wherein lies false beliefs and unresolved issues of the past. As Therapists who train and certify both professionals and laypersons to do imagery, one of our greatest pleasures is to witness our students/clients, through this transforming experience of imagery, heal and re-parent their wounded child within.

Dr. Charlotte Reznick, in this unique and groundbreaking book, takes us deeply into the inner worlds of children, where they, too, can use imagery to explore trauma and misunderstandings that are dominating their lives right now, to correct, heal and provide tools and values that can literally change their young lives and the lives and directions of their parents.

The amazing part of this book is that, above being an excellent reference for therapists to learn how to use imagery with their young clients, Dr. Reznick is actually teaching the parents to do imagery with their children. With her nine tools, hundreds of stories to illustrate what others have experienced, scripted imageries to be used both by the parents and the children, she covers every possible issue a child may have to deal with; from temper to bedwetting, from illness to acting out.

Majestic in its simplicity, classic in its wisdom, this is a book on how to be the best parent, as well as teaching children the tools, through imagery, to take charge of their own lives in the best way possible. We highly recommend this book.
