Because children's developmental stage makes it difficult for them to understand and express their own inner worlds, counsellors of children require special skill sets. These difficulties are further accentuated when children have physical and developmental problems, which hinder verbal communication. This book concentrates on these cases, and looks at the key emotional difficulties that these children are likely to be experiencing--such as anger, grief, bereavement and denial. The author has included case studies that clearly illustrate the problems these children face, and gives practical advice on helping each child to communicate and deal with his/her individual needs. In this practical and accessible text, the author identifies key issues and develops a wide range of techniques that enable care professionals to successfully communicate and build a therapeutic relationship.
