Barbara Rayment, Director of Youth Access, London "Providing an excellent introduction to counselling young people that is theoretically sound and rich in delivering practical techniques, this book is an important addition to the personal library of counselling students and counsellors" Associate Professor Sylvia Rodger, University of Queensland, St Lucia, Queensland, Australia In this third edition of their bestselling text, Kathryn and David Geldard provide a practical introduction to the principles and practices required for successful counselling, to show that working with young people can be both challenging and effective. The book is divided into three main parts, covering: - how to understand the young client as a person - the pro-active approach of working with young people - the counselling skills and strategies needed. This Third Edition has been completely revised and updated, and includes two new chapters. The first, Maintaining a Collaborative Relationship, identifies ways to engage a young person collaboratively throughout a proactive counselling process.

Additional practical case studies and examples show how counsellors can work pro-actively with this age group. The book will be of particular interest as a textbook and resource to all professionals who work with emotionally disturbed young people, and will provide an excellent resource for trainees in courses on counselling, social work, psychology, occupational therapy, mental health and psychiatry, nursing, and education.

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.
