Excellent book for those wanting to counsel children
This is another useful text in the Practice series. It provides an overview of key aspects for consideration in counselling this client group, as well as how differing modalities could be applied to working with young people.
I found the structure of each chapter to allow a clear progression in initial reading, as well as making it easy to re-locate areas in subsequent review and revision. The authors acknowledge the challenges of this client group as well as the potential rewards.
This is definitely worth having on a reading list for Practice.
This text offers an excellent introduction to a range of approaches for working with young people. Although an introductory text, recommended further reading is particularly helpful for those who wish to explore further. This text will make an important addition to future reading for the Postgraduate Diploma in Careers Guidance students. It may also be a useful resource for those seeking to enage in CPD once established in practice.
The Book has been used for students undertaking AMHP training.
Some excdellent practical activities to consider with students. Supports one particular module for youth and community and is useful for the Graduate Certificate also.
This is now in our library. Our course in youth work (which is not counselling) draws on a variety of professions and skills. I liked the first chapter that gives - in addition to other books - an understanding of adolescent development; and some goos outlines of approaches used TA, CBT and particularly SFT are of interest - Youth workers are often pragmatic and look fro wasy to help young poeple move forward. the SFT will be halpful here. There are some good case studies to enble further reflection and discussion.
