A holistic overview of child health and development for complementary therapists from diverse disciplines who work with babies and children. In order to deliver effective care and make their own treatment more successful, practitioners needs to know how the issue they are treating relates to other systems, both mental and physical.
Published by Singing Dragon
Working with babies and children is most successful when therapists have a complete understanding and overview of all appropriate treatment options, and the effects of early influences on child health and development. This book shows therapists how to consider these factors in order to work more effectively within their individual areas of expertise.
Contributors from a wide range of disciplines explore the influence of pregnancy, birth and family dynamics on the physical and mental health of babies and children. They show how these factors relate to common complaints, such as excessive and different types of crying, chronic illnesses and poor immune systems, and behavioural and attachment issues, and how complementary approaches can be best applied to treat these issues. This book also offers helpful advice for working within multidisciplinary teams. Illustrated with case studies and including examples from current research, this book is a valuable resource for therapists from diverse disciplines.
‘This book provides a great overview about how we become conditioned by early life experiences, and clearly outlines important treatment principles when working with babies, children and families. It also provides an invaluable resource for health professionals about common denominators that lie behind a wide range of physical and psychological symptoms. A must read!'
