Abstract

The authors describe a short-term inpatient program for adolescents that uses a variety of group sessions to help them deal with their immediate problems and, when necessary, prepare them for outpatient treatment. No attempt at complete ego reconstruction is made. The program includes family therapy and sessions on practical living skills, such as job hunting, productive use of leisure time, transportation, food planning, and renting and leasing. Assertiveness techniques are taught in small groups, and their use is encouraged on the unit, where staff attempt to create an acceptable social environment and provide a model for group decision-making.
