Adolescent Development and Psychopathology contains classic psychoanalytic papers on the psychology of adolescence and the psychotherapeutic treatment of adolescent patients. Written between the 1930s and 1980s by highly respected scholars and practitioners, these papers illustrate the evolution of theory and clinical practice from a structural Freudian model of personality to the ethos of developmental, relational, and interpersonal perspectives. Adolescent Development and Psychopathology compares and contrasts crucial concepts from each of the analytic orientations. While highlighting therapeutic dilemmas with adolescent patients, this volume clarifies principal connections between disruptions in adolescent development and the consolidation of psychopathology.
