About this product
- DescriptionAN UNCHANGED MIND begins with a clinical riddle: Why are teenagers failing to develop rmally through adolescence? We are presented with case studies from a therapeutic boarding school for troubled teenagers: All new students had been deemed treatment failures after conventional psychiatric care. All were bright teenagers, full of promise, t obviously ill. Yet they found themselves unprepared for the challenges of modern adolescence and inevitably failed - at school, at home and among their peers socially. AN UNCHANGED MIND is the discovery of the essence of this problem - disrupted maturation and resulting immaturity. The book explains the problem carefully, with a brief review of rmal development and an examination of the delays today's teenagers are suffering: the causes of those delays and how they produce a flawed approach to living. There is a solution. With a sustained push to help troubled kids catch up, symptoms abate, academic and interpersonal functioning improve and parents prounce their teens miraculously recovered. This remedy is t a matter of pharmacology - and the cure is t in pills. The remedy is, instead, to grow up.
