Psychotherapy Networker Magazine;Mar/Apr2007, Vol. 31 Issue 2, p85
In this article, the author discusses the case of Whitney Boyd, a teenager who lies compulsively. The author says that the case being considered aims to make the readers more receptive to the approach used by Salvador Minuchin and his coauthors. He claims that the investigators started the destabilization process when they wrote that teenagers assume they are older than their parents think they are. The author says that paragraphs 2 and 3 are filled with empathy and clarity.
