"'Counseling Children and Adolescents in the Schools' is a much appreciated and long awaited text to prepare graduate students in the helping fields. I highly recommend it for publication and would look forward to using it as a guide for my future lectures."
"Without question this is the most exciting information that I have read toward equipping school counselors to serve children and adolescents."
"This text is a much needed, and well-considered introduction to school-based counseling for graduate students in school counseling and school psychology. The authors address the unique experiences of school-based helping professionals through a concise and coherent critique of counseling theories that are well suited for school-based practice."
"The examples (and transcripts) used throughout the (workbook) supplement are great! It is wonderful to see that the workbook focuses on school-based examples. Also, I loved that it focuses on counseling skills that school psychologists will use. This book is a “must read” for all school practitioners. It targets school counselors and school psychologists—two areas of specialization that you often do not find written about together! Also, the book offers a broad range of valuable information that will be used extensively in the schools."
"With the expanded role of school psychologists to be mental health service providers, a textbook geared toward graduate students developing counseling skills is essential."
I liked the other one slightly better.
Good fit for School Counselors.
I recommended this book to my students as it is one of the few books that specifically focuses on counselling in schools. I found the writing clear and accessible for undergraduate students.
Covers the material very well & ioncludes important info left out of other texts
Good overview text that can span two courses on our program. Accessible to the students, with practical ideas for real-life in school counselling.
