Straight talk on how to connect with troubled teens. "On the evidence of Edgette's new book, she is one of those rare adults who understands adolescents' obsession with all things 'phony.' She writes with chatty authority about what the experience of therapy feels like for teens, mapping the many shoals on which adolescent therapy can founder."--Psychotherapy Networker Therapists who struggle to be liked, be cool, or say all the right things do not only a disservice to themselves, but also to the teenagers they treat. Adolescent Therapy that Really Works explores unique new ways to approach therapy with this challenging client population. Focusing on building positive, unaffected relationships with teenagers, this book shows therapists how to facilitate conversation that is candid, constructive, and respectful. Originally published in hardcover as Candor, Connection, and Enterprise in Adolescent Therapy.
