Editorial Reviews


Fascinating and inspirational. The beginning clinician will find it a perfect introduction; the seasoned therapist will benefit from Dr. Fishel's facility with the narrative approach to family evaluation and treatment, to the therapist's own past, and to the culture of contemporary adolescence. Filled with rich and stimulating case material, this book is both useful and compelling. (Martha Straus, Ph.D., Author, No-Talk Therapy for Children and Adolescents)

This vibrant book is an evocative and practical exploration of narrative and systematic therapy with teenagers and families. At the same time, it is a journey through the long and rich tradition of family therapy work with adolescents. As the author challenges the stories our society has passed down about teenagers, and brings you the wisdom of therapists whose life work has been with adolescents, you will question, mull over, and perhaps transform your own ideas. (Janine Roberts, Ed.D.)

Dr. Fishel's readable and engaging work could only have been written by an experienced, thoughtful, and well-read clinician. Difficult and sometimes confusing schools of family therapy are made understandable and clinically relevant. Dr. Fishel uniquely integrates the adolescent's developmental trajectory towards autonomy with the value of connectedness to the family. Her calm clinical mastery provides the reader with treatment options and a sense of optimism. This is an excellent text for any professional learning or practicing family therapy. (Michael S. Jellinek, M.D.)
