Description: Praise for the First Edition `This book would be a valuable resource for trainee counsellors. It would also serve to enhance the work of experienced practitioners, particularly if they are more familiar with counselling adults or children and would like to build on this by developing their skills with adolescents' - BACP North London Magazine `The style is straightforward, combining psychologically informed common-sense, comprehension, cohesion, and clarity' - Child Psychology and Psychiatry `This is a very good introduction to the nature of adolescence. The authors explain well the issues particularly relevant to counselling adolescents (as opposed to children or adults). The writing style also makes it a very easy read' - Amazon Review Counselling Adolescents, Second Edition includes two new important chapters. The first discusses how counsellors can make use of adolescent communication processes. Counsellors who understand these processes are better equipped to connect with young clients. The second new chapter explores the way in which the psychotherapeutic process can promote change in adolescents. The authors suggest that to be an effective counsellor of young people, these processes need to be fully understood. The book closes with practical case studies to show how counsellors can work pro-actively with adolescents. This book will be invaluable to those working with emotionally distressed adolescents, and will provide an excellent resource for students and professionals working in a range of helping professions. When it comes to working with adolescents in a therapeutic setting, counsellors are divided. Some work exclusively with adolescents in a successful and fulfilling way; however, others find it difficult to work with them. In this new edition of Counselling Adolescents, Kathryn and David Geldard provide a practical introduction to the principles and practices required for successful counselling, to show that working with adolescents can be both challenging and effective. The book is divided into three main parts, covering: - how to understand the adolescent as a person - the pro-active approach of working with adolescents - the counselling skills and strategies needed.
