Too often in education there is a split between those concerned with children's personal and emotional wellbeing and those focusing on academic achievement. At a time when counselling in schools is on the increase, working towards an integration of the personal and the academic is paramount.
Clinical Counselling in Schools provides counsellors, educational psychologists, teachers, teacher-trainers and other interested professionals with essential insights into how counselling best works within a school. Covering a wide range of problems encountered in schools, the contributors - all experienced school counsellors show how the context, be it state or public, primary or secondary, mainstream or special school, needs to be acknowledged in order to support and foster the emotional and academic welfare of the child.
Using a wealth of clinical information, Clinical Counselling in Schools is timely and essential reading for counsellors and all educational professionals who wish to utilise the full potential of counselling in the context of schools.
