Liana’s Favorite Things
In the spirit of Oprah, I have compiled a listing of my favorite things. Unlike Oprah, this is not a listing of the latest high-tech gadgets, gourmet foods, or bathing products, but rather, it is a list of my favorite child and family therapy books and mental health resources. I hope you find this list helpful in your work with children and families.
