Adolescent Family Therapy - 2 CPD Hours

plus P&P (if applicable)

Watch expert adolescent family therapist Janet Sasson Edgette in an actual counselling session with a single mother and her 15-year old daughter.

Parents and therapists often fall into the same traps with teenagers: getting into power struggles, coming across as phony, and not setting limits. Janet Sasson Edgette shows us how to be candid and real with adolescents rather than fighting for control or approval. In this video, Dr. Edgette works with a mom and her teenage daughter who comes and goes as she wants. Watch as Dr. Edgette softens the teen’s combative, provocative stance and empowers mom to take charge. Jon Carlson and Don Keat introduce Dr. Edgette, and facilitate an in-depth discussion of the further impact and uses of the model.

From watching this video, you will:

  • Develop an understanding of the key concepts of adolescent family therapy including empowering parents in order to strengthen the parent-child relationship.
  • Gain insight into Dr. Edgette’s therapy style and how therapists’ authenticity and candor enhances therapy with adolescents.
  • Learn how to apply Dr. Edgette’s techniques to your own family therapy work with adolescent clients and avoid common traps.
