From the Publisher
Editors Note Bromfield's (psychology, Harvard Medical School) text explores teenagers' (children from 11 through 18) perspectives on therapy, shedding light on why, in the therapeutic context, both adolescents and therapists often feel at a loss and sometimes are unsure about why they meet and what therapy can achieve. The author uses clinical case material to examine key issues, including patient ownership of therapy, achieving change, identifying and prioritizing treatment goals, valuing the adolescent, honesty in therapy, facilitating self-revelation, respecting self-esteem, spotlighting conflict, confronting patients, speaking the patient's language, setting limits, educating, problem-solving, advocating, getting therapeutically creative, handling boredom, finding opportunity in crisis, learning and recovering from failures, and working with parents. For new and experienced therapists. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
