Description - Adolescence by Inge Wise

'Adolescence - when we are no longer children and have not yet reached adulthood - is a time of much disturbance, change and potential for growth. The adolescent is confronted with a body that stretches, changes and grows in all directions, as does her or his mind: he is no longer who he was.'- Inge Wise from her IntroductionAdolescence is a turbulent period of time in life. Adolescents experience hormonal and physical changes that affect their mood and emotions. Psychoanalysis can help them resolve these new and often confusing feelings.In this collection, Inge Wise has gathered together a wide range of papers, dealing with issues such as adolescent violence, suicidal feelings, and addiction. Other papers explore psychoanalytic definitions of adolescence and central psychoanalytic contributions to the understanding of adolescence. The theoretical background of working with adolescents is interspersed with relevant clinical experience, making this book essential reading for all professionals who work with adolescents.Contributors:Dr Abrahao H. Brafman; Dr Catalina Bronstein; Donald Campbell; Denis Flynn; Dr Luis Rodriguez de la Sierra; Inge Wise.
