Adolescence : Psychotherapy and the Emergent Self. by McConville, Mark.(DLC)2108979;
Cover -- ADOLESCENCE: Psychotherapy and the Emergent Self -- Copyright -- Contents -- Preface -- Acknowledgments -- The Author -- PART I Adolescent Development: A Tasks Model -- CHAPTER ONE A Framework for Adolescent Development -- CHAPTER TWO The Child Self and the Family -- CHAPTER THREE Reorganizing the Interpersonal World -- CHAPTER FOUR Taking Ownership of the Self -- CHAPTER FIVE The Polarities of Adolescence and Development -- CHAPTER SIX The Tasks of Adolescence -- PART II Adolescents and Psychotherapy: Application of the Tasks Model -- CHAPTER SEVEN The Structure of Adolescent Psychotherapy -- CHAPTER EIGHT Addressing Family Process -- CHAPTER NINE Initiating the Therapeutic Relationship -- CHAPTER TEN From the Family to the Self: The Psychotherapy of Disembedding -- CHAPTER ELEVEN The Inner World of the Adolescent: The Psychotherapy of Interiority and Integration -- References -- Index.Many therapists can attest to the fact that adolescents can be difficult and frustating clients-problems are seldom well defined, clearly delineated symptoms are more exception than the rule, and troubling situations often involve the entire family.     Gestalt therapist Mark McConville draws on his more than twenty years of professional experience to offer clinicians an effective model for understanding and treating adolescents. He outlines the Developmental Tasks Model, which describes adolescents' struggles, "temporary insanity," and ultimately, triumph of development. He clearly demonstrates that the Gestalt therapeutic model bridges the theoretical and clinical gap, and offers an indepth exploration of the various aspects of clinical work.     Adolescence offers valuable nuts-and-bolts advice on initiating therapy with adolescents who are not yet ready to do the self-reflective, exploratory work. In addition, the book examines the therapeutic method of engaging and cultivating the adolescent's emerging inner world. With perception and sensitivity, McConville explains how the clinician can guide the adolescent in the very personal and subjective process of birthing and existential self. The book details the process of the creative reorganization of the self during adolescence and explores the changes that take place in the adolescent's relationships with peers, parents, and others in the adult world. The author also tracks the interplay of intrapsychic and interpersonal boundary development and shows how this interplay manifests itself in relationships and evolves from early through late adolescence. The Gestalt model of therapy allows the clinician to make sense of the confusion of the adolescent world and map out the multiple possibilities of clinical interventions.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
