Waddell Margot – Interpretation in work with adolescents

Using a case coming from an evaluation and several examples, the author discusses the difficulty of making interpretations to adolescents. The seriousness of the problems is more indicative of the adolescent processes taking place than of full-blown pathology. It requires the therapist to be rigorous and prudent in his interventions and interpretations.
