This text examines the diversity of counselling services available to young people in Britain today. It focuses, in particular, on schools' and young people's counselling services. It sets these services in their historical context and describes how they have evolved. The book puts forward theoretical models for working with young clients and discusses counselling issues as they relate to work with this age-group. In addition, it considers some of the pitfalls counsellors may encounter in working alongside other professionals and within agencies. It includes discussion on ethical issues, non-discriminatory practice, confidentiality and child protection. The book features case material and examples of good practice and interesting initiatives from around the country.

"This is a practical book, enlivened by case material which will be of value to organisations wishing to develop youth counselling services." - Counselling "I am pleased to haveread this book, for it covers its subject with a commendable breadth,clarity and sensitivity...this book is both a useful training resource, and a celebration and acknowledgement of the often voluntary work of counsellors in frustratingly unsupported and difficult circumstances." - Self & Society "...a very readable book which genuinely merits the much abused plaudit that it is an essentialaddition to the literature. I would go so far as to say that it is imperative for all those engaged in information, advice and counselling provision for young people to have read it." - Young People Now "...there is a lot of useful material here to encourage, challenge and inform those who counsel young people." - Contact: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Pastoral Studies "...useful book...sensitive discussion of the major issues and containing interesting descriptions of various counselling projects and services." - Journal of Adolescence "...a timely reminder that counselling young people is not a 'soft' or 'cheap' or 'easy' option." - Relate News
