About this item

Originally published in 1996, this book is about the role of peer-helping in alleviating interpersonal difficulties among young people in school settings. It is based on real-life experience on the part of the two editors and their contributors in training and developing peer-counselling services in local schools, in order to strengthen policies on bullying, equal opportunities and related personal issues. Young people’s experience of being actively engaged in helping their peers has a positive effect on self-esteem and heightens a sense of responsibility and citizenship in the young people involved. The book seeks to help teachers, educational psychologists, social workers and others working with young people to appreciate the value of peer counselling and to introduce it into their practice.
