I am thrilled that this book has been updated as it is a stalwart in my teaching of counselling to both school counsellors and psychologists. The book is a fantastic, easy to read resource which refreshes experienced practitioners as well as informing students new to the profession.

The authors are thorough in their treatment of all aspects of the nature and challenges of adolescence, the fundamentals of the proactive approach to counselling, descriptions of a wide range of skills and strategies, and of how these are to be applied ethically and professionally. The layout is clear and attractive, making it easy to use as a textbook and also for quick reference. Practitioners, student, trainers and lecturers would find this book up to date, interesting and accessible. -- Nina Rye
