Discussion

The motto of this book is: It is never too late! And nothing is outdated if it promotes development. For this reason, the contributions in this book are based not only on Fonagy's research but also on the work of Anna Freud. Although the focus of this book is on working with children / adolescents (and parents), Chapter 2 in particular provides a deep insight into the importance of mentalizing-ability for the mental development of children. Parents who were not able to develop this ability are also included in the (therapeutic) interventions. This holistic approach can be very well understood thanks to the detailed presentation of therapy concepts and case studies. Thanks to the practice-oriented chapters, this textbook is especially suitable for psychotherapy. In addition, the authors are not only concerned with facilitating the mentalization of children and adults in clinical contexts, Diez Grieser and Müller also focus on the mentalization in a (social) pedagogical context as well as in the field of prevention. Thanks to this breadth of content, this textbook should also be included in further education, training, the studies of (social) educators or foster parents. But with all the knowledge about mentalizing, it is not forgotten that mentalizing-processes of children and adolescents require the mentalization ability of psychotherapists and other professional helpers.

Conclusion

A book which encourages! The mentalization ability can be promoted in children, adolescents and even parents. In a very compact form, the authors offer significant insights into the ability to mentalize and the conditions between children / adolescents – their parents – psychotherapists. The authors present an understandable and action-guiding textbook. Professional helpers and especially child and adolescent psychotherapists need this book!
