This book introduces methods for social workers and other professional school-based counsellors to use in collaborative counselling sessions with students and young people. This book reviews evidence-based programs currently used in schools including peer mentoring, restorative justice, and virtues education. It also presents evidence on
what works from two local research projects led by the author. Findings revealed that students are likely to engage in meaningful
relationship with teachers, child and youth workers, social workers and psychologists.
Arts-based counselling activities engaged marginalized students in meaningful dialogue about their feelings. This book
further elaborates on the intimate emotional space created in counselling sessions. It discusses the importance of the consent
process when working with vulnerable populations. Written primarily for regulated mental health clinicians, this book
offers hope to young people and families.
