Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1986. dj. Hardcover first edition - A useful resource, both optimistic and pragmatic, in which Powell, a psychologist at Harvard University Health Services, "constructs a framework 'zones of concern' of four descriptive categories of teenage behavior. Case studies presented are those representative of both temporary developmental difficulties, which fall within the range of 'normal,' and those that presage deep psychic disturbance.
