Community-Based Psychotherapy with Young People offers a fresh perspective on working with difficult groups of patients. Focusing on the work of the Brandon Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy for Young People in London, the book describes approaches and techniques for working with young people with mental health problems. The book is divided into three parts: Part 1: covers the likely problems and difficulties encountered in such work. Part 2: describes services for high priority groups of young people, including those who are disabled or from ethnic minority backgrounds. Part 3: describes how the Centre evaluates the outcome of its work, and considers the future for other community-based organisations.The book will prove essential to all professionals wanting to explore different and effective ways of working with young patients.
