9781446260173: Skills in Counselling and Psychotherapy with Children and Young People (Skills in Counselling & Psychotherapy Series)

As interest and training in counselling children and young people continues to grow, it is essential that counsellors are equipped with the skills to work with this client group. In this book, Lorraine Sherman draws on her years of experience in the field to provide a practical resource for qualified and trainee counsellors, providing them with the necessary skills to ensure best practice with children and young people.

Distinguishing between working with young children and with adolescents, skills covered include:

-          establishing a therapeutic relationship

-          assessing a young client

-          contracting

-          counselling practice

-          understanding and maintaining confidentiality and disclosure

Using case studies and examples to help demonstrate skills in action, this is essential reading for anyone planning to become or already engaged in the helping professions with young people.

About the Author:

Lorraine Sherman is a humanistic psychologist, supervisor, therapist, relationship counsellor and youth worker. She is clinical supervisor of school-based counsellors across West Wales. She has extensive experience in counselling and psychotherapeutic practice with young clients and adults. Lorraine designs and teaches courses to train counsellors and therapists to counsel children and young people. She lectures on counselling courses at Trinity St Davids University, Wales and has had many years of experience lecturing on the BACP accredited counselling courses based at Coleg Sir Gar, Ammanford. Lorraine includes mindfulness in her therapeutic work, she offers compassion-based approaches that include self-awareness, poetry and play and enjoys learning from her practice.

Review:

This is a useful and supportive read for those interested in working with children and young people. It provides a considered view of the significant features of this form of counselling along with easily accessible case material and self-support exercises.

(Katherine Porter)

Giving the reader an insight into the range of skills and considerations applicable to therapeutic work with children and young people, Lorraine Sherman recognises the importance of flexible and creative approaches, with the needs of the child at the forefront of any therapeutic contact.

(Jackie Raven)

This is a comprehensive and well-structured book introducing all the required facets of knowledge and skills required on the journey to become a counsellor and psychotherapist working with Children and Young People.

 

What really separates this book from the rest of the pack though is the clear, understandable way the complex process issues in counselling, whether it be the interface between assessment and counselling or the challenges of online technology, are explored and the way mindfulness and reflective exercises are used as a tool to encourage the reader to actively engage with themselves and their own processing while studying the topics and cases studies presented. A masterstroke. I would highly recommend that this book becomes a standard text.

(Patrick Joyce)

I found the book brilliant. It resonated with my own thoughts and feelings about the minds of young people and therefore engaged and excited me, making me want to read on and learn more and continue to develop my own practice...The book is ideal as an aid for trainee counsellors and for other professionals working therapeutically with young people. (Julie Griffin, Counsellor/Psychotherapy for young people)
