 Games, Manipulations, and Seductions in Counseling the Difficult Adolescent
A Cross-Cultural Theoretical Foundation to Teens & Teen Therapy w/Developmental & Strategic Principles & Approaches

The underlying cross-cultural and development principles of the therapeutic and life games, manipulations, and seductions practiced by adolescents (with themselves, with their peers, and with adults) will be conceptualized leading to practical interventions and interactions. This will allow clinicians to successfully meet the demands of the adolescent inter-relational “game.” Clinicians will be guided in how to validate the existential world of the teen by “playing” the game successfully (gaining respect and credibility versus losing the same), and then promoting therapeutic change leading to behavior, attitude, and value development.
