This book is a must-read for counselors and psychotherapists who work with children and young people. Colleen McLaughlin and Carol Holliday, also drawing on the expertise of other renowned practitioners in the field, have provided a comprehensive and engaging guide which will help all of us who work in this field to better find our way through the joys, challenges and complexities of working therapeutically with children and young people within multi-disciplinary contexts.
Drawing together the latest research, and filled with clear practice examples, this book is an excellent resource for counsellors and therapists in schools, as well as those who supervise and co-ordinate this work. Richly informed by theory and practice, the authors have also produced a readable, engaging and accessible text which will prove valuable to everyone involved in this area of therapy.
a great insight to counselling children.
Thoroughly informative read with considered and organised approach to the unique field of counselling young people
An excellent overview, particularly helpful for trainee therapists in school placements. Well written, clearly structured, accessible and informative.
This is a great, practical book that is very user-friendly.
This is a really useful text book as it covers so much. I intended to flick through it when I received it and quickly got hooked and ended up reading for hours.
The book is interesting and easy to understand, it would be better when equipped with illustrations
An essential read for every Play Therapist or Counsellor and Psychotherapist working with Children and Adolescents. Post Graduate students would also find this text extremely beneficial for their clinical placement hours.
This is an easily readable book that should be essential reading for anyone who is counselling children and young people, not just in schools but in any setting. I highly recommend this as a core text.
Clear and well grounded in practice.
Comprehensive and uptodate and suitable for undergraduate studies.
Valuable for our new module on this topic and good that it follows an integrative approach
I have already commented once on this elsewhere - an excellent book, factual but open to different perspectives, and willing to admit the challenges involved in working with children and young people. The book is authoritative and well referenced but does not fudge difficult issues or prescribe a "one size fits all" approach.
a useful and comprehensive resource
This book would be recommended reading for any therapist, whether working with children or adults, as it looks in detail at the development of the personality. The book is honest and does not fudge or slur over difficult issues. It is written with compassion and insight.
