This highly practical resource integrates the powerful dynamics of family into residential treatment and outdoors-based therapy for young people. Recognizing both the family as the systemic base for promoting change in adolescents and the therapeutic potential of the residential/wilderness setting, experts show how aligning the two can enhance the healing value of the program while promoting higher standards for care. Chapters describe innovative, science-based interventions and techniques for treating common behavioral and emotional problems along a continuum of family involvement and separation, to address issues affecting the family as well as the identified patient. With its accessible ideas and compelling case studies, the book ably demonstrates the critical role of family in adolescent patients' successful transition to post-treatment life.
Among the topics covered:
* A parallel process: home therapy while the adolescent or young adult is in residential care.* Intentional separation of families: increasing differentiation through wilderness therapy.* Emerging family therapy models utilized in residential settings.* Engaging families in Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare.* Research on coping skills used by youth with emotional and behavioral disorders.* Expanding our understanding of the place of family therapy in residential treatment.
Family Therapy with Adolescents in Residential Treatment offers novel, exciting, and effective strategies and techniques for practitioners and mental health professionals particularly interested in family therapy with adolescents, and in related interventions and research.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The editors of this volume have achieved admirably their purpose of providing foundational information for conducting family therapy in residential treatment settings. Practitioners and teachers of residential family therapy will welcome this book, and readers previously unfamiliar with this treatment modality will appreciate receiving a considerable amount of information about it." (Irving B. Weiner, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (36), September, 2017)

"Well written by experts in the field, this book takes a good look at the separation process regarding families and children in residential programs. It also explores how on-site therapy including parents, guardians, and siblings impacts the family dynamic. Researchers and clinicians will benefit from this book." (Gary B. Kaniuk, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2017)
