Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edgette proposes a unique approach to relating to adolescents in therapy. Focusing on establishing genuine and unaffected relationships between therapists and teens, this book offers techniques for clinicians who want to engage and connect with their adolescent clients. The goal is to bring about conversations that are candid and therapeutically effective so that teens and their families can find dignified and durable solutions to their problems. Case examples and stories from Edgette's own practice illustrate how therapists can successfully navigate difficult encounters, avert power struggles, and avoid dead-end dialogues that bore teenage clients and stall treatment. Thorough and lucidly written, Adolescent Therapy That Really Works shows therapist how to become partners with their clients, maintain their authority while also drawing teens into comfortable conversation, and read body language and facial expressions to better convey understanding and respect. Every therapist who works with adolescents and their families will benefit from the wisdom, skill, and honesty exhibited in Edgette's therapeutic approach.

Book News Annotation:

Edgette, a clinician in private practice and author of other books on psychotherapy, describes how to work with adolescents. She discusses why teens require a different approach, the experiences of adolescents in therapy, unconstructive methods, how to change therapeutic techniques, how to use candor, and approaches to specific problems such as lack of communication or trust, and disrespect. The book was previously published in 2002 as Candor, Connection, and Enterprise in Adolescent Therapy. There are a few footnotes, but no bibliography.
