This book presents a point of view that breathes new hope for correcting the psychopathology of developmental failure and for achieving separation-individuation through intensive psychotherapy. Eminently qualified to write about adolescent patients, Donald Rinsley brings clarity of thought and extensive theoretical and clinical experience to the task. The volume gains in thoroughness and usefulness by his presenting psychoanalytic object-relations understanding not only of troubled adolescents, but of their families and treatment as well. By careful elaboration of major concepts developed over long years of intensive work, this volume provides the comprehensive theoretical understanding necessary for successful residential treatment of the deeply disturbed adolescent and restoration of the family's equilibrium. It is essential reading for anyone who hopes to broaden his own conceptual knowledge of, and therapeutic skill with, adolescent patients and their families.
