Every teenager rebels against authority at some point - talks back, breaks curfew, or disobeys. But literally millions of teens go beyond normal adolescent rebellion to engage in out-of-control or dangerous behavior. If one of those teens is yours, you've probably lived through years of conflicting advice and pat solutions that haven't led to lasting change.
Dr. Rodman has a breakthrough model of working with youth and families that will finally get a permanent, positive pathway to reestablish authority and reclaim love with even the most difficult teenager.
Utilizing a treatment model gleaned from solid empirical support from a four year research study, Dr. Rodman uses a combination of solution, strategic, and structural-family therapy focused approaches to bring about improvements in extreme behavioral problems in adolescents. Dr. Rodman uses an approach that puts parents back in a position of authority and teaches parents proven methods to keep teens on track.
