Description - Counselling in Schools by Dr Robert Bor
Counselling in Schools is a practical, contemporary guide to providing effective counselling support within school settings. Recognizing the very specific nature of this area of counselling practice and the uniqueness of every school, the authors provide a flexible framework and guidelines for working collaboratively with pupils, families and colleagues. The aim is not to give prescriptive responses to all the problems which pupils may bring to counselling, but to help counsellors develop their skills in responding to each individual in the most appropriate way. They emphasize the need for counsellors to be resourceful and creative in their approach and stress the reality that change is always an inevitable feature of working in schools. Written from a systemic and solution-focused perspective and illustrated throughout with vivid case studies, the book examines: the need for school-based counselling services, legal issues involved in counselling children, the range of problems with which pupils present, the role and skills of the school counsellor, and specific challenges faced in school settings.
Counselling in Schools is an invaluable resource for anyone wishing to provide counselling support for pupils in secondary education. Counsellors, teachers, social workers and education welfare professionals will find it a source of practical information and creative ideas.
