`This book would be a valuable resource for trainee counsellors. It would also serve to enhance the work of experienced practitioners, particularly if they are more familiar with counselling adults or children and would like to build on this by developing their skills with adolescents' - BACP North London Magazine

This practical book has been specifically designed for students and professionals working with emotionally disturbed adolescents. It introduces the specific issues associated with counselling adolescents, and describes how traditional counselling skills can be enhanced by the use of pro-active processes for more effective use with this client group.

Kathryn and David Geldard describe the nature of adolescence; explore adolescents' counselling needs, giving an account of the pro-active approach to counselling they developed for use with this client group; and describe the use of widely accepted counselling skills which enable the adolescent to arrive at strategies for addressing specific issues. The final part of the book contains case studies.
