Counselling and Supporting Children and Young People
A Person-centred Approach
- Mark Prever - Lead Professional, Every Child Matters, Yardleys School, Birmingham
Counselling and Supporting Children and Young People is the ideal introduction to counselling and supporting children and young people. Taking a person-centered approach, Mark Prever offers readers a clear understanding of the theory and practice of working with children and young people in difficulty – whether in a therapeutic, school or social work setting. This practical text:
- specifically addresses both the counsellor and the 'helper', who may be unfamiliar with counselling jargon
- contains exercises, points for further thought and discussion, and boxed notes throughout, highlighting exactly how the theory applies to the child or young person
- discusses ethics, the current political agenda and evidence-based practice
This book is a must-read for trainees and professionals working with children and young people in the fields of counselling and psychotherapy, education, mental health, nursing, youth work and social work.
An interesting book which is clearly set out in a way which will be helpful for students
This is good supplemental reading for our Foundation course as there are key elements including non judgmental listening skills which are part of the project based work which is core to this unit.
to gain insight into children's counselling
A very person-centred book about person-centred support for children and young people.
Very user-friendly and written in an engaging manner. Loved it.
This is a recommended text for any of our students wanting to pursue a career in counselling or youth work. Very clear and easy to read - nice resource.
too specific on counseling to be of use more generally to my youth work students
An essential text for the Children and Young People Foundation Degree. Explorative of key areas of supporting children through difficult transitions. My students loved this text!
An excellent book that addresses the basics for anyone working in a helping profession. The differentiated guidance given a) for counsellors and b) for helpers was extremely useful
A good additional text
This is a five week course and I liked the content covered in this textbook.
