This book is the ideal introduction to counselling and supporting children and young people. Taking a person-centred approach, Mark Prever offers readers a clear understanding of the theory and practice of working with children and young people in difficulty - whether in a therapeutic, school or social work setting.
This practical text:
- specifically addresses both the counsellor and the 'helper', who may be unfamiliar with counselling jargon
- contains exercises, points for further thought and discussion, and boxed notes thoroughout, highlighting exactly how the theory applies to the child or young person
- discusses ethics, the current political agenda and evidence-based practice.
This book is a must-read for trainees and professionals working with children and young people in the fields of counselling and psychotherapy, education, mental health, nursing, youth work and social work.
