This is the second monograph published by Karnac Books on behalf of the Brent Adolescent Centre/Centre for Research into Adolescent Breakdown. Drawing on the Centre's unique pool of expertise in the field, this book contains papers giving up-to-date psychodynamic perspectives on adolescent breakdown by leading clinical experts. These cover a range of topics, such as the differing developments in male and female adolescents, and the particular problems of psychotherapeutic intervention with them. It also includes the proceedings of a conference on the subject held in October 1995. Here the issues of adolescent breakdown are discussed in the wider context which workers in the caring professions must consider. Overall, this volume provides a concise, contemporary overview of a topic whose importance is increasingly being recognized both inside and outside the psychotherapeutic community.

Reviews and Endorsements

'For many years, Moses Laufer and his colleagues at the Brent Adolescent Centre/Centre for Research into Adolescent Breakdown have made important contributions to our understanding of the assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorder in adolescence. This new monograph underscores, with rich clinical documentation, the urgency of these tasks and the value of a psychoanalytic developmental perspective in pursuing them. It will be of value to all professionals who work with young people, and should be essential reading for those concerned with public policy as well.'
- Aaron H. Esman, M.D. Professor of Clinical Psychiatry (Emeritus) Cornell University Medical College; Editor, Adolescent Psychiatry
