I dont know if this young man is in therapy because he wants to or needs to because of court etc. First thing you need to do is to establish a therputic relationship. If he is disruptive and rebelious this may take some time. If you do get his trust you may be able to work with his issues little be little. It is important to let him deal with his feelings through the art and not too much talking as adolecents often are confused about their feelings. Keep the art at the center of the discussion. Also read the book by Bruce Moon "Dynamics of art therapy with Adolecents" it is indespensible. Good luck regards, Hoda
