The second edition of Counseling, Psychology, and Children takes a multidimensional four-part approach to counseling children. This approach: 1) capitalizes on the relationships children build with parents, teachers, and other adults; 2) looks at children's developmental processes; 3) examines multicultural influences upon them; and 4) takes into consideration the variety of intervention models available. Four chapters examine four major approaches to child therapy: psychodynamic, child-centered, behavioral/cognitive-behavioral, and family systems. In the final synthesizing chapter, the author draws upon his experience as therapist and teacher to bring everything together through a case study that shows his multidimensional approach in action. This book covers the use of play as a therapeutic technique and emphasizes thinking outside the box of standard therapy. It encourages future counselors to view treatment as the culmination of education/developmental, preventive, and remedial interventions. For professionals in the field of counseling children.
