Counseling Children and Adolescents in Schools by Robyn S. Hess, Sandy Magnuson, Linda M. Beeler

Counseling Children and Adolescents in Schools is a text and workbook designed to help aspiring school practitioners (school psychologists, school counsellors, and school social workers) gain the necessary theoretical background and skill set to work effectively with youth in schools. The text covers all the basic therapeutic models used in working with children, such as: Alderian therapy; play therapy; group therapy; brief therapy; cognitive-behavioral therapy, and more. It also contains chapters that outline the context in which these services are received and special chapters on ethical and legal issues in schools, accountability in service delivery, and working with family and school personnel. The workbook works in conjunction with the text, chapter by chapter, and provides full length cases, application of each model to the case, full session transcripts, tip boxes, and critical thinking questions, and more.


With the expanded role of school psychologists to be mental health service providers, a textbook geared toward graduate students developing counseling skills is essential. -- Michelle M. Perfect The examples (and transcripts) used throughout the (workbook) supplement are great! It is wonderful to see that the workbook focuses on school-based examples. Also, I loved that it focuses on counseling skills that school psychologists will use. This book is a must read for all school practitioners. It targets school counselors and school psychologists-two areas of specialization that you often do not find written about together! Also, the book offers a broad range of valuable information that will be used extensively in the schools. -- Bridget Roberts-Pittman, Ph.D., HSPP, LMFT This text is a much needed, and well-considered introduction to school-based counseling for graduate students in school counseling and school psychology. The authors address the unique experiences of school-based helping professionals through a concise and coherent critique of counseling theories that are well suited for school-based practice. -- Natasha K. Segool Without question this is the most exciting information that I have read toward equipping school counselors to serve children and adolescents. -- Wanda L. Staley 'Counseling Children and Adolescents in the Schools
is a much appreciated and long awaited text to prepare graduate students in the helping fields. I highly recommend it for publication and would look forward to using it as a guide for my future lectures.
