This chapter considers the question of how to engage psychodynamically in a timelimited intervention with young people aged 12 to 25 years. The question of engagement came to the fore following a review of attendance for psychotherapy at the Brandon Centre. This review is described in more detail in the Introduction to this book. One problem, no doubt familiar to other psychotherapy services for young people, was that demand for psychotherapy exceeded the resources that we could provide. As a result many young people’s requests for help did not get a rapid response. Another key area highlighted by the review was the high drop-out rate early on in the therapy.
