  • In this Third Edition of their bestselling text, Kathryn Geldard and David Geldard provide a practical introduction to the principles and practices required for successful counseling, to show that working with young people can be both challenging and effective. The book is divided into three main parts, covering:

    How to understand the young client as a person
    The pro-active approach of working with young people
    The counseling skills and strategies needed
    This Third Edition has been completely revised and updated, and includes two new chapters. The first, Maintaining a Collaborative Relationship, identifies ways to engage a young person collaboratively throughout a proactive counseling process. The other, Professional and Ethical Issues, deals with these issues as they relate to working with young people. Additional practical case studies and examples show how counselors can work pro-actively with this age group.

    This is an excellent text for courses in counseling, social work, psychology, occupational therapy, mental health and psychiatry, nursing, and education. It will also be of particular interest to all professionals who work with emotionally disturbed young people, and will provide an excellent resource for trainees.
