Defiance in the Family follows the treatment of childhood and adolescent defiance through therapy, from intake to termination. The authors take a unique view of defiance as an expression of a child's worry for a family that is not working properly and as the child's means of protecting the inner self in the face of family turmoil.


"The authors provide a refreshing perspective . . . This book can serve not only as a manual for this type of therapy, but, because it is easily readable, it can also be recommended to families undergoing this treatment." -- Psychiatry

"Cutting edge, thought-provoking, yet highly practical…this volume is a must-read for clinicians working with families and adolescents snared in a web of alienation, anger and defiance." -- William Bumberry, MD
