This book effectively presents an insightful blend of theoretical ideas, practical realities and ways of engaging with children and adolescents.
Guidance and Counselling for Children and Adolescents in Schools provides a rich understanding of the challenges, problems and difficulties that children and adolescents face in adjusting to the contexts in which they live, grow and study. All teacher-education programmes expansively define the role of teachers and their responsibility towards guiding and counselling students. This book serves to help student-teachers and in-service teachers to understand their role as counsellors and build perspectives about the mental health concerns of students. Rendering ground realities within theoretical approaches to psychotherapy and mental health, it serves as a useful resource for practitioners and researchers in education.
The book is based on more than three decades of experience of the authors in the fields of education and psychology and experiential understanding of contemporary times.
