Although adolescent-parental separation is a natural course of the life cycle, there is a close correlation of this process to bereavement, mourning, and grief.  Psychotherapy may involve reframing - what has been seen as rejecting and angry comes to be seen as a developmental process bringing great relief.  Through case history material, a comparison is made between normal and pathological adolescent-parental separation processes.
