Mentalization with Neglected and Traumatized Children provides a comprehensive walkthrough of the impact on child development as a result of neglect and trauma, and how theories of mentalization can help.

First providing a thorough overview of the concept of mentalization, Janne Oestergaard Hagelquist shows how one can have productive and mentalizing interactions with neglected and traumatized children and adolescents, as well as how to apply the more current knowledge about mentalization and trauma in treatment of these children. The book provides specific educational tools and pedagogical models aimed at supporting the daily work of a professional working with children, adolescents, or families. Concepts and tools of mentalization are presented in a reader-friendly and easy-to-use way and are supported by case studies and clinical vignettes throughout.

This book is essential reading for professionals working with neglected and traumatized children, such as psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, social workers, pedagogues, teachers and foster carers, as well as those interested in mentalization, trauma and child development.
