Review:

`I like the interactive style in which the book is written, whereby the reader is invited to consider how they might deal with a situation... following which the authors explain how they approach it... The book is for counsellors in training and a resource for practising counsellors. The methods described can be adapted to different settings, for example school and home... I would recommend this comprehensive and stimulating book to anyone who is interested or involved in working in a therapeutic way with children' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling `This book raises interesting questions concerning practical issues within the counselling relationship with the child... The book is clearly written, well organized and lives up to its claim to be jargon-free. It is written in an interactive style which not only encourages the reader to consider and question issues but is also "user-friendly". Although the authors outline a variety of resource material, they acknowledge the reality of budgetary restrictions in the cost conscious '90s. Good practice is stressed throughout and I found this an easily read, interesting book which should appeal to practitioners from a variety of professional backgrounds. It could easily be described as a working handbook, making it a useful addition to those considering counselling children' - The Lecturer, NATFHE Journal `Useful in the training of new counsellors and provides ideas for experienced counsellors.... a practical guide [from which] individuals can extract ideas which have a personal fit...The book provides an introduction to many creative approaches to counselling work with children...A useful summary of basic counselling skills is provided' - Young Minds
