Overview

This essential resource offers a perceptive analysis of counseling children under the age of 13. Renowned experts examine cases on an array of common childhood issues. Each case offers a variety treatment approaches for working with clients for whom words are not necessarily their primary form of communication. In addition, the ethical issues that arise when counseling children are explored. Instead of focusing only on ''success stories,'' the counselors in this book also discuss especially challenging cases and give candid descriptions of their self-doubt and confusion about how to proceed.

The 36 chapters of this book are organized into the following eight sections: (1) Anxiety, Mood, and Psychotic Disorders; (2) Child Abuse and Other Trauma; (3) Diversity Issues; (4) Family Problems; (5) Grief and Loss; (6) Physical Ailments; (7) Protecting Children from Themselves; and (8) School-Based Counseling. Because critical incidents and case studies are so useful in eliciting discussion and fostering learning in a group context, this book is ideal for counselor training programs. More experienced counselors looking to enhance their skills are certain to find this book a valuable resource as well.
