About this item

Milosavljevic presents this book on complementary and alternative therapies for adolescent mental health, written to be accessible to clinicians, parents, and teenagers. The preface emphasizes the usefulness of these methods for people who prefer not to take pharmaceuticals or undergo time consuming psychotherapy, who get incomplete relief from conventional treatment, or who want additional tools without increasing medication dosages. The introductory chapter covers the multisensory neuroplasticity-based approach. Further chapters then apply these principles to problems of stress, fatigue, low mood, sleep difficulty, focus, headaches, and substance abuse. The physiology, signs, and symptoms of each distress state are described, followed by relevant tools utilizing mindfulness, gentle physical activities, aromatherapies, music, and acupressure along with a case study. The final chapter addresses the limited scientific evidence on the topic of CAM in mental health, including issues such as placebo effects and non-naturalistic study designs, ultimately arguing that despite a lack of high-quality evidence these methods are worth pursuing due to their safety and low cost.
