“This text is by far the best I have used in my 20 plus years as a counselor educator for our counseling children and counseling adolescents courses. It provides just the right mix of current research and theory along with concise case examples that bring to life the most important content. The topics covered are especially appropriate for our school counseling M.Ed. students.”
Greg Brigman, Ph.D., Professor of Counselor Education, Florida Atlantic University
“Well-organized book that is easy to read. Every chapter starts with a case example that sets the tone for the material that will be discussed. Authors provide multiple examples and developmentally appropriate interventions that make the book even more valuable.”
Hanna Lainas, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Education, Texas A&M International University
