Summary The thesis reports on three studies which investigated the following phenomena. Adolescent day programs (ADPs) are the preferred treatment option for a substantial number of Australian adolescents whp suffer from mental health disorders, but little empirical research has been conducted on what sonstitutes an ADP, whether such programs have efficacy, and if they do, what factors contribute to their efficacy. The professional portfolio reviews the existing literature on parent abuse before considering the relevance of this information for clinical practice by examining four cases of parent abuse that were treated in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service.
