Adolescents rarely come to therapy of their own choice and often don't care to talk about their problems with adults. This course will help you deal with these difficult teens and apply practical strategies for addressing their problems.

The early sessions with a teen often consist of minimal dialogue between a contemptuous teen and an uncertain therapist. Reading Course R112 offers a variety of perspectives and methods that can lead to more productive therapy with teens.

Here's What Reading Course R112, Working with Reluctant Adolescents, Covers:

  • The four most common mistakes in treating teens.
  • William Doherty's practical techniques for addressing the problem of the decade: that childhood is becoming a rat race of hyperscheduling, overbusyness, and loss of family time.
  • How to be more genuine with even the most difficult teen client.
  • How to create a context of safety and connection in work with angry black teens so that the potentially explosive issues of race and chronic rage can be confronted.
  • A systemic approach to the problem of the self-harming adolescent.
  • 3 different interventions that help overscheduled families begin to reconnect right away.
