Review Quotes
"Barkley, Edwards, and Robin provide an extremely practical and practitioner-friendly guide for working with teens who are noncompliant and defiant toward their parents. Importantly, the intervention manual synthesizes best practices that are developmentally sound and empirically based. Though not intended for 'deep-end' clinical cases and families, the guidelines presented in this manual are highly applicable for clinicians working with families in private, public, and managed care settings." --Scott W. Henggeler, PhD, Professor and Director, Family Services Research Center, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston "At last--a clinically sophisticated, empirically validated model for working with defiant adolescents and their families. Defiant Teens offers a state-of-the-art model for understanding, assessing and treating this difficult clinical population. Clear, step-by-step treatment procedures are supplemented by invaluable handouts to help parents and teens learn to communicate and live together more harmoniously." --William M. Bumberry, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, St. Johns Mercy Medical Center, St. Louis, MO

Summaries
Publisher Fact Sheet
Presents a proven program designed both to teach parents the skills they need to manage difficult adolescent behavior & to improve family relationships overall. From the author of Taking Charge of ADHD, with over 125,000 in print.
Unpaid Annotation
This manual presents an 18-step program designed both to teach parents the skills they need to manage difficult adolescent behavior and to improve family relationships overall. Steps 1 through 9 modify the approach presented in Russell A. Barkley's Defiant Children to focus on developmental concerns of adolescence. The authors delineate clear procedures for assessing defiance in teens and working with parents, alone or in groups, to reverse problem behavior. Steps 10 through 18 are conducted with parents and their teenagers together, utilizing a family therapy model developed by Arthur L. Robin and Sharon Foster. Clinicians are shown how to help all family members learn to negotiate, communicate, and problem-solve more effectively, while facilitating adolescents' individuation and autonomy. Ready-to-photocopy forms enable clinicians to gauge the nature, diversity, and severity of parent-adolescent conflicts; assess for oppositional defiant disorder; and evaluate parental psychological adjustment.Reproducible handouts for families reinforce crucial ideas and skills imparted in-session.
