This practical handbook is designed for counselors, social workers, and psychologists in schools and mental health settings. It offers over 100 creative activities and effective interventions for individual counseling with children and adolescents (ages 6-18). The activities include stories, songs, games, worksheets, role plays, and other strategies that address problems, such as anger, anxiety/worry, depression, underachievement, procrastination, perfectionism, self-downing, and acting out. The interventions, which are based on the principles of rational emotive behavior therapy, can be used for helping students with normal developmental issues as well as for helping those with more serious emotional or behavioral problems. Dr. Vernon provides strategies for establishing a therapeutic relationship with students who are sometimes apprehensive or opposed to counseling. Several case studies are included to help illustrate the counseling techniques and interventions. The book also includes a chapter on working with parents and teachers.

About the Author:

Ann Vernon, Ph.D., NCC, LMHC, is professor emerita, University of Northern Iowa, where she served as coordinator of the School and Mental Health Counseling programs. Dr. Vernon has published numerous books and has authored more than 30 book chapters dealing primarily with counseling children and adolescents, developmental counseling, and applications of REBT with children and adolescents. In addition to her teaching and writing, Dr. Vernon presents workshops throughout the United States, Canada, and numerous other countries.

Review:

Vernon uses anecdotes to help provide the basics of different counseling techniques, and addresses internalizing problems, developmental problems, and emotive behavior. The book also includes suggestions for well-crafted activities to supplement standard therapy techniques. --Youth Today, The Newspaper on Youth Work

While many existing books discuss the theoretical orientations of different therapies, there are far fewer that describe specific techniques for use with children and adolescents. Dr. Vernon fills this void. . . . a well-written guide that many clinicians will find useful. --Erin Clark and Ray Christner, Communique
