A practical, evidence-based introduction on counseling children and adolescents

Counseling Children and Adolescents empowers counselors to thoughtfully and deliberately help young clients tackle complex issues and difficulties. The text covers the principal approaches to counseling children and adolescents, discusses the common issues that bring children and adolescents to counseling, and helps readers understand what counseling younger people looks like. What sets this work apart are its concrete applications and its clear, accessible writing.

As one reviewer put it, the text’s key strengths are a “practical synthesis of theory into clinical and school counseling..., engaging case studies that are diverse and multiculturally sensitive..., [and] real world application.”
