In other words, if you think that adolescent sexuality is principally driven by a search to satisfy desire, either you approve of it, saying that it is a good thing, or you disapprove of it considering it a bad thing, but you do not understand the essence of it, because the pressing need derives from the confusion that the adolescent is trying to sort out.

Analytic work to gather together his infantile parts into the transference and to differentiate the delusions-of-adulthood from his true adult personality was the most tedious uphill work.

Putting oneself in the adolescent’s shoes, in therapeutic work, one should try to create a place where this process could be carried out as systematically as possible whilst at the same time allow the adolescent enough room for manoeuvre, to allow him to escape when it becomes too much for him.
