Working with Adolescents: a Psychodynamic Approach.
The presentation deals with the special issues that are encountered in the clinical setting of working with adolescents. A short history of working psychodynamically with adolescents is followed by a discussion of the technical adjustments that are required with this age group. The importance of ‘playing’ within the session and being flexible in technique are emphasised. Finally there is an examination of working with parents of adolescents.
