Counseling Children and Adolescents: Cultivating Empathic Connection
Counseling Children and Adolescents focuses on relationship building and creating a deep level of understanding of developmental, attachment, and brain-based information.
Chapters place a clear emphasis on building strengths and developing empathy, awareness, and skills. By going beyond theory, and offering a strengths-based, attachment, neuro- and trauma-informed perspective, this text offers real-world situations and tried and true techniques for working with children and adolescents. Grounded in research and multicultural competency, the book focuses on encouragement, recognizing resiliency, and empowerment.
This book is an ideal guide for counselors looking for developmentally appropriate strategies to empower children and adolescents.
