A manual written especially for therapists developing behavioral treatment plans for all types of adolescent clients Mar 14, 2006
Psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, and educator Muriel Prince Warren DSW, ACSW presents Psychotherapy with Adolescents and Their Families: Essential Treatment Strategies, a manual written especially for therapists developing behavioral treatment plans for all types of adolescent clients. Chapters discuss the author's tested techniques for helping patients with disorders of anxiety, behavior, bipolar, depressive, eating, impulse control, sleep, substance dependence/abuse, and much more. A great deal of the text is not written in traditional paragraph style, but rather pairs a list of the adolescent's or parents' goals across from the therapist's recommended interventions, such as "Adolescent's Goal: Learn that it is okay to express feelings. / Therapist's Interventions: Praise or reward the adolescent for expressing feelings appropriately." treatment aids covered include an assortment of useful therapeutic tools, such as role-playing, hypnosis, genograms, and family sculpturing, suggested homework assignments, self-help books, and therapeutic games. An appendix of sample forms such an outpatient medical management report, a payment and session monitor, or a discharge summary round out this highly accessible resource created with practical applications firmly in mind.
