Overview

Multiple Intelligence Counselling is the doctoral thesis of the author Patrick O'Brien. This book explores the thesis that Gardner's theory of multiple intelligence is an excellent model for counselling and is as relevant in the therapy room as in classrooms. The book traces 10 case studies that demonstrate the use of Gradner's theory in connecting with young clients in the authors practice. Secondly, it argues that the engagement of children in counselling and the development of rapport is best undertaken using a Gardner intelligence that the child is quite comfortable in using. A third point is that Sandplay allowed the counsellor the greatest flexibility in engaging and integrating all intelligences presented by Gardner. A higher level synthesis of the findings is presented in a short fairy tale "Sad knights and magical days".
