Zonefulness: The Ultimate Guide for Student Athletes
Therapeutic Conversations with Adolescents takes readers into the office of a seasoned therapist, where they can be a fly on the wall of live therapy sessions. Full of actual dialogue and the processing behind the choice of responses and interventions, this book stands in contrast to the dozens of books about adolescent therapy that discuss only theory, conjecture, and generic strategies.
Teenagers today need therapists who can offer robust and unpretentious therapeutic relationships, as well as conversations that matter enough to hold their clients’ attention and make them want to come back for more.
Readers will come away from this book understanding how to tread the delicate balance between the support and confrontation, the forthrightness and discretion, and the humor and tenacity that therapists need to make a real and lasting impact with teenagers.
The Last Boys Picked: Helping Boys Who Don’t Play Sports Survive Bullies and Boyhood
Read the book Parents magazine calls a “MUST READ” and “a wowing and enlightening guide for any parent”
“ … chock full of valuable information on a topic that is so rarely spoken about.” — Dorri Olds
In our competitive culture that makes heroes out of athletes, it’s not easy being a boy who doesn’t like to play sports.
Overlooked by a society that reinforces impossible standards of “masculinity,” boys who are uninterested in competitive sports or have non-aggressive personalities are often vilified and bullied for being different as they grow up in the shadow of America’s obsession with bigger, faster, richer, and stronger. Compassionate, empowering, and instructive, The Last Boys Picked will help parents, teachers, coaches, and caregivers identify the social and emotional hurdles that these boys face, and offer specific action steps to help any child build resilience and a healthy self-esteem.
The Last Boys Picked was written to help parents, educators, coaches and others whose lives intertwine with children appreciate the social and psychological challenges these boys face, and help them feel valued in a world that aggrandizes athletic prowess and dismisses aggressive behavior in males as “boys being boys.”
Teenagers have become very adept at keeping their parents off balance and making them second guess their decisions.

Focusing on establishing genuine and unaffected relationships between therapists and teens, this book offers techniques for clinicians who want to engage and connect with their adolescent clients. The goal is to bring about conversations that are candid and therapeutically effective so that teens and their families can find dignified and durable solutions to their problems.

Every therapist who works with adolescents and their families will benefit from the wisdom, skill, and honesty exhibited in Edgette’s therapeutic approach.
“This immensely readable book addresses the selection, eliciting, and therapeutic use of hypnotic phenomena that are natural outgrowths of trance… Numerous case examples vividly illustrate intervention with anxiety disorders, trauma and abuse, dissociative disorders, depression, marital and family problems, sports and creative performance, pain … and other conditions… In summary, I feel that The Handbook of Hypnotic Phenomena in Psychotherapy is an excellent book.”
