5.0 out of 5 stars A well-written, pragmatic tool for clinicians 15 Feb 2010
By Robert K. Raborn - Published on Amazon.com
I work with teens and adolescents who are at-risk of removal from their homes due to poor functioning and behavioral problems. I would say that working with this population may be one of the most intimidating for therapists like myself. Thankfully, Dr. Bromfield of Harvard has shared his insights, experiences, and professionalism to help clinicians use confidence, patience, and emphatic attitudes that are unique to the adolescent/teenage experience.

The book's contents are highly accessible, practical, intelligent, and trustworthy. Each chapter focuses on aspects of the therapeutic process, from motivational assessment, treatment planning, and confrontation to crisis management, boundary setting, and enduring failed therapy (the quixotic-minded clinician believes that therapy works for everyone).

Additionally, Bromfield is an entertaining writer, who uses quips, vignettes, and unfiltered language to help immerse the reader into the world of youth who are at battle within themselves and their environments.

Obviously, I am very glad that I read 'Teens In Therapy: Making It Their Own' because it has made me feel more confident and prepared to help a clientele base for which I care so deeply.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and readable 12 Dec 2011
By Pat Bromley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I warned my class that they would want to take this book into the bathroom to read it, it's so good! I don't know if they actually did (hope not, we're on the textbook rental system) but I do kow that they loved it. We found the case accounts so relevant! This is just a wonderful book, particularly for newer therapists. But it's also good reading for veterans. Lots to generalize to clients of all ages. I highly recommend it.
