Giving the reader an insight into the range of skills and considerations applicable to therapeutic work with children and young people, Lorraine Sherman recognises the importance of flexible and creative approaches, with the needs of the child at the forefront of any therapeutic contact.

-- Jackie Raven

This is a comprehensive and well-structured book introducing all the required facets of knowledge and skills required on the journey to become a counsellor and psychotherapist working with Children and Young People.

What really separates this book from the rest of the pack though is the clear, understandable way the complex process issues in counselling, whether it be the interface between assessment and counselling or the challenges of online technology, are explored and the way mindfulness and reflective exercises are used as a tool to encourage the reader to actively engage with themselves and their own processing while studying the topics and cases studies presented. A masterstroke. I would highly recommend that this book becomes a standard text.

-- Patrick Joyce
I found the book brilliant. It resonated with my own thoughts and feelings about the minds of young people and therefore engaged and excited me, making me want to read on and learn more and continue to develop my own practice...The book is ideal as an aid for trainee counsellors and for other professionals working therapeutically with young people. -- Julie Griffin, Counsellor/Psychotherapy for young people
