The Adolescent Self
Strategies for Self-Management, Self-Soothing, and Self-Esteem in Adolescents
Dr. David Wexler describes an innovative treatment program for troubled adolescents that addresses central problems of the "self."
The problems of substance abuse, anxiety, aggression, self-destructive behavior, eating disorders, and mood swings can usually be traced to fundamental deficits, particularly in the ability to self-soothe. This book models a range of carefully designed strategies to address these central problems of the adolescent self.
