This book is the ideal introduction to counselling and supporting children and young people. Taking a person-centred approach, Mark Prever offers readers a clear understanding of the theory and practice of working with children and young people in difficulty - whether in a therapeutic, school or social work setting.

This practical text:

- specifically addresses both the counsellor and the 'helper', who may be unfamiliar with counselling jargon

- contains exercises, points for further thought and discussion, and boxed notes thoroughout, highlighting exactly how the theory applies to the child or young person

- discusses ethics, the current political agenda and evidence-based practice.

This book is a must-read for trainees and professionals working with children and young people in the fields of counselling and psychotherapy, education, mental health, nursing, youth work and social work.

"Mark Prever writes with considerable passion. He is passionately committed to the person-centred approach and all that is has to offer the worlds of education and counselling. He is also passionately concerned with the well-being of children and young people and the alleviation of their suffering. His book is permeated by this dual commitment. It is scholarly without ever becoming arid; it is enlivened by numerous case studies which demonstrate the breadth and depth of his experience; it is encouraging for all those already engaged in work with young people and for many it will be a source of inspiration when the going gets rough and problems seem intractable." - Brian Thorne, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of East Anglia, Norwich and Co-founder of The Norwich Centre


"...both interesting and was enriching to see the Person Centred Approach in the context of working with children and young people. This book would be an excellent aid for both student counsellors and a very valuable reminder to experienced practitioners of the core principles and values of the approach. It illuminates for the reader the importance of the relationship between therapist and client within the Person Centred Approach." - Carmel Mullan-Hartley, Person Centred Counsellor, Supervisor and Trainer, Open Door Youth Counselling
