In Change-Oriented Therapy With Adolescents and Young Adults, Bob Bertolino writes with an eye toward the issues faced by contemporary therapists who, confronted with the pressures of running a clinical practice and dealing with managed care, are often compelled to keep therapy brief and solution-oriented. Results are critical and they must be attained in a relatively short amount of time, which requires the flexibility to use various therapeutic modalities and the willingness to adopt a form of clinical guidance that allows the client to guide therapy and initiate change while honoring the therapeutic relationship and alliance. Bertolino provides techniques and practical principles to facilitate transformation, including question-and-answer segments and case examples that show readers how change-oriented therapy works and feels in the clinical setting. Change-oriented therapy breaks new ground for both therapists and clients by revising and reintegrating existing theories and practices.
