Few therapy approaches were designed specifically with adolescents in mind. Teenagers often describe therapy as irrelevant and boring. This approach replaces an emphasis on feelings, confidentiality, and non-judgmental support with a focus on therapist credibility, client accountability, and un-affected conversation – factors that are more affecting to these kids, many of whom never asked for our help in the first place. Participants learn how to establish themselves as credible figures to their teen clients, boldly hold those clients accountable for their choices, and build compelling conversations sentence by sentence that have genuine meaning and striking impact.
