"The authors convey so clearly the essential ingredients of psychoanalytically influenced therapy - being open- minded without preconceptions, listening both to the adolescent's feelings and those brought up in themselves, providing opportunity for expression and understanding and opening up the possibilities of different ways of looking at things. Intended primarily as clinical workbook for counsellors, psychotherapists and arts therapists, there is more than enough in this book to engage anybody interested in young people." - Peter Wilson, Founder of Young Minds and Clinical Advisor for The Place 2 Be, from the Foreword.
