The Adolescent in Family Therapy: Harnessing the Power of Relationships

Available

Description

Rich with clinical wisdom, this successful text and practitioner guide offers a comprehensive framework for treating adolescent problems in the family context. Even as teenagers become increasingly independent, Joseph Micucci shows, they still need parental guidance and nurturance. By strengthening family relationships, clinicians can alleviate symptoms and promote behavioral change. Vivid examples and session transcripts illustrate specific strategies for treating eating disorders, depression, anxiety, defiance, underachievement, and other frequently encountered challenges. Weaving together family therapy techniques with ideas from psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral approaches, the book has a pragmatic focus on effective interventions for getting adolescent development back on track.
