by

Power and Compassion: Working with Difficult Adolescents and Abused Parents (Guilford Family Therapy) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drawing from structural-strategic family therapy, this pragmatic treatment guide looks at threatening teenagers in a new light. It describes how triangles formed by uncontrolled young people and adult authority figures anxious to appear understanding - including therapists - may service to increase the rebellious power these adolescents yield. Proposing new solutions, Price delineates the levels and types of abusive behavior in teenagers and outlines how to help parents regain control by learning to be both more understanding and more decisive.

Book News Annotation:

A down-to-earth guide for working with difficult adolescents and their families, making a passionate case for rescuing parents from invalidation by a society that often views parents as the main cause of their children's problems. Offers countermoves to power tactics used by teens to perpetuate emotional abuse on their parents, and provides strategies for helping families break free of self-defeating cycles of control and rebellion, illustrated with a wealth of case material. The author is director and founder of the Michigan Family Institute, and a regional faculty member of the Family Therapy Institute of Washington, DC.

Synopsis:

When teenagers get out of control, understanding and negotiation often only make things worse. In this solid, no-nonsense guide to working with difficult adolescents and their families, Jerome A. Price makes a passionate case for rescuing parents from invalidation by a society that often views parents as the main cause of their children's problems. He shows how demoralized parents can be undermined by well-meaning professionals and other adults anxious to appear understanding, whose alliances with out-of-control adolescents create an invidious triangle. Recognizing that sometimes parents are victims, not victimizers, the author provides effective strategies to help families break free of self-defeating cycles of control and rebellion. The book delineates the levels and types of abusive behavior in adolescents, and outlines how parents can regain control by learning to be both more understanding and more decisive.
