Doing therapy with teens has always been a challenge--they are constantly bombarded by pop culture. This course will provide you with a step-by-step guide for getting through to them and establishing healing relationships.

As you’ll discover in Reading Course R132, you have to forego the old constraints of traditional therapy to make any impression on these easily-bored kids.

Here's What Reading Course R132, Therapy with 2st Century Teens, Covers:

  • Ron Taffel's strategy for helping these kids discover their passions, and how it combats pop culture’s “tyranny of cool."
  • The risks and rewards of MySpace for today’s teens.
  • 10 tips for dealing with difficult adolescent girls, and how to understand the mystifying logic of self-injury among them.
  • The important differences in working with teenage boys and teenage girls.
  • A strategy to use when your teen clients give you the silent treatment.
  • How to respond to teenage anger; countering kids’ intensity with your own--literally, giving it as well as taking it.
  • The different “cut-offs” that teens experience.
  • The problem of launching “adult-child stay-at-homes”--kids in their early twenties who cling to a protracted adolescence.
