Summary
"Dealing with difficult, acting-out adolescents is extraordinarily challenging - not only for parents but also for even the most seasoned professionals. Clinical techniques that help many adolescents often fail with teenagers who are regarded as unmanageable at home or in school. Based on a 4-year research study, this highly practical guide presents a unique 15-step treatment model that has been demonstrated effective in bringing about lasting improvements in severe behavioral problems. A wealth of real-life case examples, concrete troubleshooting tips, and solid empirical support facilitate the program's implementation in a range of clinical settings." "This step-by-step intervention road map will be invaluable to professionals working with families, including family therapists, adolescent psychotherapists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health and human service workers, as well as probation officers and other juvenile justice personnel. Straight-forward and accessible, it will also serve as a welcome resource for graduate students and trainees in these fields."--Jacket
