Overview


Clinicians know that mental health disorders in adolescents may manifest externally as aggressiveness, opposition, or isolation from others. What’s less clear is just how to move beyond these conduct and defiance issues to help teenage clients cooperate with treatment so they can build healthy social skills and values.

Mode Deactivation Therapy for Treating Aggression and Oppositional Behavior in Adolescents combines the most effective aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP) to meet the specific challenges of therapists working with angry, distrustful, or hostile adolescents. This evidence-based treatment program is effective with the most difficult-to-treat adolescents, especially those who struggle with anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and depression. Complete with assessments and client worksheets, this approach encourages young clients to see alternatives to their antisocial core beliefs and equips them with skills for gaining control of their emotions and oppositional behavior. The skills these clients learn will be useful long after adolescence, and can redirect their lives dramatically.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“For the clinician working with adolescents, mode deactivation therapy provides a practical and innovative approach to internalizing and externalizing disorders that takes concepts drawn from cognitive behavior therapy in new and interesting directions. The step-by-step approach to assessment and case conceptualization presented in this book is especially helpful and is the result of years of development work in the field.”
—Steven C. Hayes, PhD, Foundation Professor of Psychology at the University of Nevada

“Working with angry, aggressive, and oppositional adolescents is fraught with significant challenges as well as rewards. This new guidebook should go a long way in diminishing the former while increasing the latter. The authors’ empirically-supported therapy creatively integrates critical elements of other cognitive behavioral approaches into an easy-to-follow protocol that collaboratively engages adolescents in their own treatment.”
—Robert Zettle, PhD, professor of psychology at Wichita State University and author of ACT for Depression

“For those of us who realize that medication alone is seldom effective for adolescents with aggressive and/or oppositional behaviors, Mode Deactivation Therapy for Treating Aggression and Oppositional Behavior in Adolescents is an essential companion. This therapeutic approach allies therapists with adolescents. Therapists learn to accept their clients in total and empower them to change. Jack Apsche and Lucia DiMeo have produced a book that is a must-read for any inpatient or outpatient clinician dedicated to understanding and treating the entire child—mind, body, and emotions.”
—Robia A. Fields, MD, board-certified psychiatrist and medical director at a residential facility for children and adolescents

“Adolescents can be tough to treat under any circumstance. Sometimes, serious and complex psychological difficulties converge with that perfect storm of adolescent social development, individuation, and emotional upheaval, and the challenge is taken to a whole new level. Apsche and DeMio have done the hard work of integrating the best of evidence-based interventions and have created a tremendous resource targeting this extraordinarily challenging population.”
—Kelly G. Wilson, PhD, associate professor at the University of Mississippi and author of Mindfulness for Two and The Wisdom to Know the Difference
