This text, first published almost 30 years ago, was originally written solely by Dr John Meeks. He has been joined by Dr William Bernet as coauthor for the fourth and, now, fifth editions.
The preface to this edition provides a brief review of the changes that have taken place in adolescent psychiatry since the first edition and the corresponding changes in the text. Throughout the years, the book has maintained its focus on the practical work of psychotherapy with adolescents as well as presenting the knowledge on which to base that practice.
