Synopsis:

The increasing incidence of teenage conflict with parents and/or institutions indicates the dire need for an effective means to handle adolescent difficulties. Therapists of many diverse backgrounds have long debated the efficacy of particular approaches to parent-adolescent discord, some focusing on parental training in the management of adolescents, some on the marital relationship as the key to disturbance, and others on the adolescent as an individual. Drs. Robin and Foster are among the first of the researchers and practitioners engaged in this debate to recognize the need for an intervention strategy that utilizes both cognitive-behavioral and family systems theories, thus broadening the descriptive and analytical skills necessary to in-depth treatment planning. In this volume, Robin and Foster have forged an integrative model for the assessment and treatment of these conflicted family members, basing their theoretical framework on empirical data in order to test effectively the heuristic tools employed.

Synopsis:

Parent-adolescent discord is often handled from a unitary perspective, whether the focus is on enhancing parenting skills, resolving conflicts in family relationships, or working to improve the behavior of the individual child. This important work shows the clinician how to incorporate all of these crucial elements into a single, research-based treatment program. Presented is the authors' influential integration of cognitive-behavioral constructs and family systems theory, grounded in consideration of adolescent developmental concerns. The book describes effective ways to conceptualize and assess the problems of embattled parents and teens; use assessment data in treatment planning; overcome resistance and other therapeutic hurdles; and implement carefully sequenced skills training, cognitive restructuring, and functional/structural interventions. The theoretical and empirical bases of the treatment approach are also discussed in depth.
