Adolescent Family Therapy
by Janet Sasson Edgette
Watch expert adolescent family therapist Janet Sasson Edgette in an actual counseling session with a single mother and her 15-year old daughter.
Parents and therapists often fall into the same traps with teenagers: getting into power struggles, coming across as phony, and not setting limits. Janet Sasson Edgette shows us how to be candid and real with adolescents rather than fighting for control or approval. In this video, Dr. Edgette works with a mom and her teenage daughter who comes and goes as she wants. Watch as Dr. Edgette softens the teen’s combative, provocative stance and empowers mom to take charge. Jon Carlson and Don Keat introduce Dr. Edgette, and facilitate an in-depth discussion of the further impact and uses of the model.
