Essential Research Findings in Child and Adolescent Counselling and Psychotherapy

Edited by:


February 2017 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

What can child and adolescent counsellors and therapists learn from research? What evidence is there for the effectiveness of different therapies and techniques? How can developmental or neuroscience research inform or inspire therapeutic work with young people?

This book provides the answers to these questions, and more. Leading experts in the field take you through the latest research findings in child and adolescent therapy, discussing how each is relevant to the work of practitioners. Today, both therapists and trainees need to be aware of, and engage with, research findings.  The book presents, accessibly, the current best knowledge and its implications for practice.
