Adolescence and Delinquency: An Object-Relations Theory Approach (Paperback)

Usually Arrives at Kepler's in 3-14 Days


This book applies modern object-relations theory to a population for which the 'treatment du jour' is increasingly cognitive-behavioral. Taking his lead from the delinquent adolescents in his practice, he presents a treatment approach in which adolescents are related to as people, rather than as transitory objects passing through a 'stage.' The book presents theory and case examples in a dialectical relationship, illuminating the seamlessness of theory and application.
