A critical need of clinicians is to find or design intervention procedures that produce improved communication. Developing effective treatment methods is most difficult when serving those children and adolescents for whom traditional intervention strategies do not produce the desired treatment gains. To better serve children with difficult problems and to increase treatment effectiveness with all clients, clinicians are eager to try new methods, yet are appropriately cautious in believing unproven claims of success. The need for balancing the potential success of new treatment methods against the possibility of unrealized hopes is exacerbated by the desire of parents to find a solution to their child’s problem even when professionals counsel that no “cure” or “magic solution” exists that will produce rapid results.
