Description

In this book, Moses and Egle Laufer contend that severely disturbed adolescents can be assessed and treated psychoanalytically, and that their illness differs from comparable in older patients, and that the psychopathology has its source in conflicts over the sexually mature body. Extensive case histories support their argument.
