From the Inside Flap:

Problems of identity, sexual development, peer-group relationships, family dynamics-the teenage years can be tough on even the most well adjusted adolescent. In fact, it's not just teenagers displaying dysfunctional behavior who find themselves in therapy anymore. And as most therapists know, the last thing these young men and women want to do-regardless of the severity of the presenting problem-is form an intimate therapeutic relationship with a health care professional. This complicated circumstance can make the first session with a teen one of the most challenging a therapist can face.The First Session with Teenagers is a practical, accessible guide that reveals how mental health care professionals can conduct a successful initial interview with reluctant and uncooperative adolescent clients.

From the Back Cover:

The tools you need to work with teens to establish trust, uncover hidden issues, and create an effective plan of action. . . all within the first session

Neil G. Ribner, a noted expert in the field of family therapy and the treatment of adolescents, offers clinicians an effective therapeutic plan of action that clearly demonstrates how the first session can be used to establish trust, engage the adolescent, and set the tone for the entire course of treatment.

"Neil Ribner doesn't talk in generalities, rely on clinical jargon, or underestimate the complex issues involved in working with adolescents. Using a large number of clinical vignettes from his vast experience, he shows how the therapist's ability to align him or herself with the adolescent client is what typically spells the difference between being helpful or getting blown off. In culturally sensitive, down to earth language, Ribner describes how to empathically connect with the fears, anxieties, and resentments of troubled teenagers and their families in ways that promote change."
—FRED WEINER, psychologist, Counseling and Psychological Services Center, Ohio University

"In the most readable prose, Dr. Ribner outlines everything you want to know about initiating treatment with the adolescent client. Psychotherapists in training in all disciplines should read this manageable and straightforward book; their supervisors and other experienced clinicians could also benefit from this compact yet comprehensive reminder."
—DONALD J. VIGLIONE, professor and director, Clinical Doctor of Psychology Program, California School of Professional Psychology, San Diego

"Refreshing and direct . . . this book will benefit those who work with adolescents in a variety of settings."
—JOANNE E. CALLAN, professor, California School of Professional Psychology
