Counseling and Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents: Theory and Practice for School and Clinical Settings

A comprehensive theoretically informed approach to working with children and adolescents in both educational and clinical settings
Psychotherapy and Counseling with Children and Adolescents, The Fifth Edition offers mental health professionals and students cutting-edge theory and practice for the major contemporary psychotherapeutic schools of thought. Children and adolescents are not miniature adults; they have their own needs, requirements, and desires, in addition to the challenges posed by their still-developing brains and limited life perspective. Providing care for children and adolescents requires a thorough understanding of the interventions and approaches that work in conjunction with developing brains, as well as the practical ability to alter course to accommodate changing personalities. The completely revised fifth edition is a comprehensive reference that includes expert commentary.
