About the Author

Dr. Boskovitz’s work with children and adolescents is based on the pioneering work of Dr. Françoise Dolto, a French psychoanalyst who specialized in child education. Dr. Dolto advocated for treating children as competent, separate persons who are owed respect and the truth concerning their circumstances, whatever these are. Using this approach with clients and in her books, Dr. Boskovitz has seen adolescents thrive in their emotional development, yearn to be independent and responsible for themselves, and become self-directed, resilient persons.
