Description - Adolescent Breakdown and Beyond by Moses Laufer

This is the second monograph published by Karnac Books on behalf of the Brent Adolescent Centre/Centre for Research into Adolescent Breakdown. Drawing on the Centre's unique pool of expertise in the field, this book contains papers giving up-to-date psychodynamic perspectives on adolescent breakdown by leading clinical experts. These cover a range of topics, such as the differing developments in male and female adolescents, and the particular problems of psychotherapeutic intervention with them. It also includes the proceedings of a conference on the subject held in October 1995. Here the issues of adolescent breakdown are discussed in the wider context which workers in the caring professions must consider. Overall, this volume provides a concise, contemporary overview of a topic whose importance is increasingly being recognized both inside and outside the psychotherapeutic community.Contributors:Anthony Bateman, Debbie Bandler Bellman, Gabrielle Crockatt, Maxim de Sauma, Domenico di Ceglie, Sara Flanders, Maurice H.
