Recent research suggests that the mental health of today's adolescents is deteriorating just as they find themselves increasingly demonized in the popular press. The first edition of Stephen Briggs' Working with Adolescents won praise for its success in introducing the reader to the inner world of contemporary adolescence. This second edition builds on that strength, including new material on adolescent depression, the changing pressures on young people from ethnic minorities post 9/11 and the latest work on eating disorders and body image, and showing how a psychodynamic approach can be used flexibly in the context of institutional emphasis on evidence-based practice and brief treatments. It will be essential reading for students and qualified practitioners across the caring professions.
