Third Edition


November 2011 | 296 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Brief Counselling in Schools, third edition, is a highly practical and accessible guide to helping and supporting young people experiencing difficulties both at home and at school or college. Covering issues from low self-esteem and sexuality, to substance misuse and aggression, the author draws on a method of brief integrative counselling to illustrate how a time-limited therapy can work effectively in an often pressured and time-limited setting.

This fully revised and updated edition:

" includes a whole new chapter on self-harm

" discusses the latest research findings

" outlines up-to-date Safeguarding legislation and Child Protection protocols

" explores a teamwork approach to counselling

" examines the contribution of neuroscience to adolescent brain development

" considers the harmful effects of cyber bullying

" is in an accessible format with reflective exercises on ethical issues.

Steeped in vivid case examples, therapeutic dialogue and points for reflection, this invaluable book will help develop the theoretical knowledge, understanding and skills base of any youth counsellor, teacher or social worker based in a school or college setting.
