This guidebook shows therapists and counsellors how to make the most of that crucial first contact with teenagers. Pregnancy, truancy, drugs and alcohol and eating disorder are examples of serious problems encountered by many teenagers. Yet few actually seek psychiatric help on their own, but are usually forced into it by parents or school. Under these circumstances, it is difficult to form a therapeutic relationship with an older healthcare professional is why it is essential during the first session with a teenager that the therapist establishes trust, discover latent issues and determine a plan of action that can continue within or outside of treatment. This books aims to show how to bridge the generation gap and understand the teens perspective, and create an effective treatment plan with short and long term goals.

Using a large number of clinical vignettes from hisvast experience, he shows how the therapist's ability to align himor herself with the adolescent client is what typically spells thedifference between being helpful or getting blown off.
