"Because abuse-focused therapists tend to specialize in either children or adults, adolescent abuse survivors are often neglected by clinicians. Fortunately for all concerned, Eliana Gil has written a wonderful and insightful book on treating this specific population. As usual, her writing sparkles with humanity, intelligence, and technical prowess. And, as usual, I went straight to the famous Eliana-and-the-client dialogues: no one demonstrates the nuts and bolts of (very good) therapy like Dr. Gil." --John Briere, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, University of Southern California School of Medicine
"I enjoyed this book a great deal. It fills a much needed treatment niche. Adolescents are often ignored in case examples in other treatment books. Gil's multicultural case examples rang true and are an important contribution to the literature. One of the most valuable pieces is the transcripts of dialogue that are included as well." --William N. Friedrich, Ph.D., Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota
