Counselling Adolescents: The Proactive Approach for Young People


Product Description

Published UK, 2015 (4th edition)
The Geldards apply their pro-active approach, so successfully applied to counselling children, to the more demanding adolescent audience. Their approach is specifically designed to parallel the adolescent developmental process. By doing this, there is synchrony between the counselling process and the adolescent`s own experiences. This book has been designed for practitioners working with emotionally disturbed adolescents. It is not intended to be primarily a theoretical treatise. It is very much a practical guide for counsellors. The third edition has been fully revised and updated and includes two new chapters on maintaining a collaborative relationship; and professional and ethical issues. UPDATED 4th EDITION.
