This text is designed to give sound clinical guidance to those working with adolescents. The guiding philosophy of the text is that the foundation of clinical work with adolescents is the quality of the relationship between the clinician and the adolescent. This text not only helps students understand how to appropriately apply technique and theory but also, more importantly, how to use these effectively within the context of the clinical relationship.
