This volume provides a sensitive account of how to optimize the value of therapeutic contact with this challenging and compelling population. Illustrating her presentation with case examples from her extensive clinical experience, the author shows when and how to address the abuse to help adolescents move ahead in their development.
This book will be of interest to psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals who work with troubled youth, as well as probation officers and residential treatment staff.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dr. Gil writes in a clear and concise manner that engages the reader. She provides useful clinical examples and, at times, provides the transcribed dialogue of an actual treatment session demonstrating how she worked with the individual....This book is very useful both for the therapist beginning work with people who have been abused, and for the experienced therapist as a reminder of the significant and important issues for treatment."--"The Canadian Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Review"
"[The book's] real strength is in the clinical vignettes, which form the backbone of the book. These include detailed descriptions of adolescent-therapist and family-therapist interactions, which are delightful to read. The language is straightforward, to the point and refreshingly free of jargon." --"American Society For Adolescent Psychiatry Newsletter"
.,."provides an elegant, well-formulated discussion... This wise and compassionate book will be highly useful for clinicians ..." --"Contemporary Psychology"
"An invaluable guide....Provides the reader with an excellent review of theories of adolescent development....This is an eminently readable book that I can highly recommend to experienced and inexperienced pratitioners alike." --"Child Psychology and Psychiatry"
.,."well-researched and clearly written...anyone working with survivors of abuse would find helpful information in this book. This book should be added to every library. It si concisely written, easily understood and pleasant to read. Without a doubt, it will become one of the finest resources for those working with abused adolescents." --"Coalition Commentary"
"There's nothing more reassuring in this day ofmultiple theories and grandiose therapeutic claims than to read the work of an experienced, balanced practitioner who thoroughly knows what she's doing. This was my response in the first pages of Eliana Gil's book, "Treating Abused Adolescents," I sat back and settled in with a sense of immediate confidence that I was being taught material I very much needed to learn. In addition to her understanding of the issues of adolescents and the impact of trauma on them, I appreciated Gil's clarity about her therapeutic stance in outlining her personal ideas about treatment. She lets us know what, in her own experience, determines her approach, and she summarizes theories that she finds particularly useful in working with this population. Beyond her extensive knowledge of the topic, what is most useful about this book is that Gil provides a hands-on guide to doing treatment. This book is highly useful, not only in treating adolescent trauma victims, but in working with adolescents in general. This book is important reading for all of us who work with families affected by trauma and abuse and, to my mind, is a major contribution to the literature on children and trauma." --"Journal of Feminist Family Therapy"
"As often with Gil's books, this reader is left wishing she could drop into her office for discussion of a particularly challenging case. Like Gil's earlier works, this one provides a deep appreciation of the literature on abuse, child development, and therapy, combined with clearly described and well-developed therapeutic strategies, all presented with an energizing warmth and humaneness. Novice and experienced therapists alike will find this volume worth many times its modest purchaseprice." --"Readings: A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health"
.,."Gil's writing style, case examples, therapy transcripts and numerous chunks of dialogue make her book of likely appeal to informed lay persons as well as the professional." --"Child & Family Behavior Therapy"
"This volume provides step-by step guidance for mental health professionals in demonstrating how they can communicate and work more effectively with adolescents who have suffered from abuse." --"Sage Family Studies Abstracts"
Editor's Choice, "Science Books and Films," Nov. 1996

""Treating Abused Adolescents" clearly underscores the author's mastery of the dynamics of the problem. Eliana Gil has presented a helpful work that expands our general base of information and provides 'thoughts and ideas...about how to mitigate the pervasive negative effects of childhood and adolescent abuse.' She combines clinical experience with both systemic considerations and theories of development, attachment, and trauma....The model of treatment she proposes involves empowerment of the victim and an increase in the person's overall functioning....Step-by-step directions are presented along with an abundance of case studies to illustrate the process....Although it addresses complex matters and is appropriate for a professional and college audience, the book is sufficiently lucid to be used for high school and general readership." --Jerry Leismer in "Science Books and Films"
"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
