Young binge drinkers are becoming more and more common in society today. By using case studies with fictitious clients, this timely and much needed book offers the reflective thoughts and feelings of both client and counselor in a user-friendly format. Counselors and psychotherapists who practice, or are interested in, the person-centered approach, will find this book invaluable - particularly those who work with young people. It also provides vital information for youth leaders, teachers and parents of young people, and counselors and therapists in training.
