This detailed explanation of the counseling process and examination of the major theoretical approaches for helping children with developmental, social, or behavioral problems will help you develop the skills you'll need as a considerate, effective counselor of children. Real case examples and transcripts of actual sessions show how to apply the techniques you've read about. Plus, you'll find a new chapter on play therapy that describes the play therapy process and offers a case illustration; practical, up-to-date methods for helping children overcome problem behaviors such as fighting, stealing, lying, cheating, shyness, withdrawal, and destructiveness; coverage of counseling concerns associated with children in homeless families, suicidal children, children in satanic cults, children living in a violent world, and children living with AIDS; specific suggestions for counseling children who are exceptional, who are part of a non-mainstream culture, or who are affected by such factors as divorce, death, abuse, homelessness, or alcoholism; an annotated bibliography of children's literature, updated to include a variety of special concerns; a revised chapter on psychoanalytic counseling with applications to counseling children; a reworked chapter on counseling families that details the differences among various approaches; coverage of brief counseling in the reality therapy chapter; a study guide and an expanded instructor's manual new to this edition.
