  • Irany B. Ferreira
Keywords: Adolescents, psychodrama, psychotherapy, clinical practice


This article is aimed at professionals who are starting psychotherapy work with adolescents, as well as professionals who have been working with adolescents for a longer time. First, I will look at experienced professionals as a reference point. In the second part of this paper I explore the theoretical aspects of adolescence and psychodrama in the clinical setting. Finally, two clinical examples are discussed, with the conclusion that there is a theoretical-practical frame of reference for therapeutic work with adolescents.
