About this item

This textbook for graduate students in counseling explains what the latest insights from neuroscience reveal about child and adolescent development. The first section of the book outlines the history of frameworks for counseling children and adolescents, discusses legal and ethical issues, and gives background on neurobiological implications of attachment and trauma. Section 2 provides chapters on individual theories and approaches: psychodynamic theories, humanistic approaches, cognitive-behavioral approaches, family and organizational systems approaches, and constructivist approaches. Section 3 presents chapters on counseling with various age groups, from infancy through age 21. Chapters end with print, online, and film resources. The text’s reader-friendly layout offers frequent headings, summary boxes, process diagrams, exercises, discussion questions, case scenarios, and many dialogue examples from the classroom, the playground, and the counseling session.
