Adolescents are a notoriously difficult population to work with in talk therapy. The application of Choice Theory to their treatment as well as experiential complementary therapies has been shown to enhance treatment and decrease recidivism in this population. The incorporation of EFP and Choice Theory into a six-week program with five adolescents in residential addictions treatment is described, including pilot study data, case studies and a detailed description of the structure of both the program and the research.
