The definitive guide to the skills and techniques used when working with children experiencing emotional problems, this book covers all you need to know about, including: 

  • The goals for counseling children and the child-counselor relationship
  • Practice frameworks for working effectively with children
  • Play therapy and the use of different media and activities
  • Building self-esteem and social skills through the use of worksheets

The new Fifth Edition has been updated to include:

  • A new chapter on technology (its influence on children and ways that technology can be used during counseling)
  • New content on issues of diversity and difference in counseling children
  • The different contexts in which counseling children occur
  • Discussion of concepts of well-being and resilience
  • Updated references and research

The book is supported by a new Companion Website that provides training materials and handouts on a range of skills for counseling children including: helping the child to tell their story and tray work, the use of miniature animals, the use of clay, and helping the child to change thoughts and behavior.

This highly practical guide is vital reading for counselors, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, nurses, and teachers working or training to work with children.

Review:

This book is first class. It is well written and engaging and contains a wealth of exercises and activities to use with children. I love this book. Author: Sally Riggall Published On: 2017-06-16

Counselling Children has been an excellent resource to enhance the practice of psychotherapy with children since its first edition published in 1997. I first met the Geldards at their informative workshops in Brisbane in those early years, which thoroughly enhanced my work with children. Their published books were an added bonus. This fifth edition further supports the therapist with an addition of a Companion Website. It is a highly recommended resource, and one that I value, for every therapist working with children.

Author: Dianne O′Malley Published On: 2017-06-19

This book is a classic text for students and practitioners interested in learning more about working with children. It is easy to read and the examples given bring to life the real challenges faced in practice. At the end of each Chapter is a helpful key points box which is ideal for summarising the contents of each chapter. An essential text in the field of counselling and psychotherapy.

Author: Divine Charura Published On: 2017-09-06

The book follows a natural progression from the beginning of developing the initial relationship, through looking at different models of counselling, the skills necessary for working with children, to the use of different media – the use of play in all its various forms, visualisations, and the use of worksheets.

The real value for money comes for me with the huge number of online resources, including videos and worksheets available via the use of a code given in the book. Author: Lynn Martin Source: BACP Published On: 2018-09-04
