Family-Centered Treatment With Struggling Young Adults is an indispensible guidebook to the unique set of problems and opportunities that families face when young adults are experiencing difficulty pulling anchor and setting sail. Renowned clinician Brad Sachs, PhD, provides both a conceptual framework for understanding the reasons behind the increasing number of young adults who are unable to achieve psychological and financial self-reliance and a treatment framework that will enable practitioners to help these young adults and their families to get unstuck and experience age/stage-appropriate growth and development. In Family-Centered Treatment With Struggling Young Adults, clinicians will gain an in-depth understanding of the complex psychological challenges that parents and young adults face as the latter forges a path towards success and self-reliance. Moreoever, they'll come away from the book having learned an innovative approach to sponsoring family engagement ant the launching stage-one that reduces tension, resolves conflicts, and promotes evolution and differentiation on both generations' parts.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Family-Based Treatment With Struggling Young Adults is exactly the book I've been looking for! Written with great life and humanity, Brad Sachs has crafted a beautiful, practical book. I found it to be highly accessible, immensely helpful, and incredibly well-written. Sachs takes us inside therapy sessions and often gives us the words to say to our clients and their families. More importantly, he gives us a framework to skillfully work with these challenging clients. Any clinician who works with struggling young adults and their families needs to get this terrific book. I devoured it!"

-Dave Verhaagen, PhD, ABPP, CEO of Southeast Psych and author of Therapy With Young Men and Parenting the Millennial Generation

"In this must-read book, Brad Sachs brings therapeutic wisdom to the new realities of extended adolescence with insight, empathy, and incisive understanding of family needs and psychotherapy practice."

-Jerrold Lee Shapiro, PhD, professor of counseling psychology at Santa Clara University and author of Finding Meaning, Facing Fears in the Autumn of Your Years (45-65)

"Brad Sachs has written a timely and invaluable book for practitioners assisting the growing tide of young adults who are struggling in their transition to independent living. His deft handling of sessions in which parents and their grown children, either separately or together, learn to navigate the developmental challenges of individuation and autonomy is a lesson in the delicate art of balancing respect, compassion and accountability in clinical work. This is an excellent book."

-Janet Sasson Edgette, PsyD, psychologist and author of The Last Boys Picked: Helping Boys Who Don't Play Sports Survive Bullying and Boyhood

"This is a beautiful, thoughtful book focused on supporting families and young people through the task of 'launching children' during the transition to adulthood. Filled with philosophical and poetic quotes and stories, it offers practitioners a framework for self-reflection and reflecting with families and supports the holding of a non-blaming, compassionate stance." - Jade Smith, CAMHS, UK
