Reviews for The Connected Therapist:
I’m a better therapist because I’ve known Marti Smith. When I sent my clients and their families to work with Marti, they were loved and cared for in the same way she loves and cares for her reader in The Connected Therapist. Marti is gifted in helping parents and caregivers see their child through a new lens- the body- awakening curiosity in even the most frustrated adult. The Connected Therapist draws the reader in with story and then packs their tool-box with simple, every day interventions. I want every parent I know to read this book. - Robyn Gobbel, LMSW-clinical
Marti Smith’s wisdom and compassion is a gift to anyone serving a child with sensory challenges. In The Connected Therapist, Marti marries her expertise in occupational therapy with personal storytelling and humor to create a tremendous resource for caregivers and professionals alike. - Sarah Mercado
As a parent and former teacher, I cannot express this strongly enough: Read this book. I wish I had this resource twenty years ago, but its encouragement and practical suggestions will inform every interaction I have with children moving forward. Marti’s emphasis on relationship and connection, along with her overriding principles of care and comprehensive therapeutic knowledge, inspire each rader to take a chance (take two!) and reach out to children who are struggling. - Carolyn Bryant
