Abstract

Psychological difficulties among young people are common. Various initiatives are being proposed in schools, yet no evidence -based data is available on how to address family difficulties (most prevalent issues in school-based counselling). The current study examines the use of a two-component intervention based on the principles of Perceptual Control Theory (PCT). One is Method of Levels therapy (MOL) and the other is a parent-child activity (Shared Goals). Young people were invited to choose how often to engage in both MOL and the Shared Goals activity as well as the topics discussed during sessions for four months. Seven dyads were recruited and six were retained. At the end of the intervention, five young people were considered recovered.
