The first book to explore the issue of abuse in adolescents - both the residual effects of earlier child abuse and current or cumulative abuse. 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
"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
