Description

In Teenage Girls, Dr. Karen Zager demonstrates her approach to therapy with adolescent girls. Teenage girls are a complex population difficult to pigeonhole; however, one general fact is that this group usually does not feel that adults listen to them. Dr. Zager therefore recommends listening as the key to working with teenage girls. Therapists must also respect what the client wants to obtain from therapy and avoid imposing therapeutic goals on the teenage girl.

In this session, Dr. Zager works with a 14-year-old girl named Lauren who is having issues with family tensions as well as relationship troubles with boys. Dr. Zager works with Lauren to help her see her problems from a broader perspective.
