The goals for counselling children and the child-counsellor relationship
Practice frameworks for working effectively with children

Discussion of concepts of wellbeing and resilience

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

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