This book addresses the key issues and problems faced by adults involved in the care of children.
Increasingly, the carers of children must call on basic counseling skills in their interactions with young people and their families. Counselling and Supporting Children in Distress gives those in the caring professions the knowledge they need to provide effective support for the children and young people with whom they work.
Integrating theory, practice and research, the authors give clear, accessible interventions designed to alleviate distress. They demonstrate how appropriate counseling approaches and support systems can be incorporated by practitioners into their existing repertoire of skills.
Counselling and Supporting Children in Distress, with its clear and comprehensive coverage of the subject matter, will be essential reading for counselors, nurses, teachers, psychologists and all professionals involved in the care and guidance of children and young people.
