Adolescence: Psychotherapy and the Emergent 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.
