I am thrilled that this book has been updated as it is a stalwart in my teaching of counselling to both school counsellors and psychologists. The book is a fantastic, easy to read resource which refreshes experienced practitioners as well as informing students new to the profession.

The authors are thorough in their treatment of all aspects of the nature and challenges of adolescence, the fundamentals of the proactive approach to counselling, descriptions of a wide range of skills and strategies, and of how these are to be applied ethically and professionally. The layout is clear and attractive, making it easy to use as a textbook and also for quick reference. Practitioners, student, trainers and lecturers would find this book up to date, interesting and accessible.
A very thorough textbook and certainly one I will recommend to those students working with younger clients.
Excellent book, very accessible and I particularly liked the accompanying activities which can be used to develop confidence and practice skills
A very well revised edition that builds on the previous work by the authors. Informative, theoretical and practical. Good for teaching and a great source for students.
classic text on technique and theory
Really lovely book, simple and clear lay out. Great interventions and information regarding developmental aspects of young people in relation to counselling. I will use this book to create my CPD course and I will recommend this book to my student/vounteers
This is a classic text and invaluable for students working with young people.
Well structured and clearly focused on youth. Very useful companion website. Many practical exercises.
