This chapter presents a model of psychosocial intervention that aims to demonstrate counselling techniques to help adolescents and their families deal with stress and problems in living. It explicates how the PPC paradigm and seven developmental domains frame therapeutic encounters; four unique intervention principles are enumerated and clarified. Acknowledging a psychotherapeutic integrationist approach, the chapter also identifies other principles common to most psychological therapies.

Keywords:   psychotherapy, empathy, development, strengths, social ecologies, intersubjectivity, PPC paradigm
