With 25 exercises detailed, this manual is invaluable for any psychotherapist who works in groups with adolescents. It provides both the foundation upon which to build for therapists new to groupwork and a fresh approach for experienced practitioners. This `how to' guide covers issues central to adolescence, including sex, drugs and alcohol, emotionality, family dynamics and identity formation. Behavioural and cognitive objectives for each exercise are included, together with examinations of possible pitfalls and problems. The manual provides a complete group programme and can stand alone, or it can supplement an existing programme.
