"This text is well written, comprehensive, and accurate in providing a variety of critical information pertaining to clinical practice with both children and adolescents."
-- Teresa Christensen, University of New Orleans
"I give Counseling Adolescents and Children my complete endorsement as a text for beginning and seasoned counselors. The text is well written, effectively organized, and loaded with useful information that will prove to be an invaluable resource for those in the field and a helpful teaching tool for counselor educators working with counselors in training. I believe the author was successful in developing a manuscript that is a powerful blend of the theoretical and the practical and is written in the context of a family systems approach that places as much emphasis on the family as it does on the client being served. I also appreciate a well-researched manuscript that is presented in a conversational style of writing in which the reader is guided by a trained therapist and supervisor with many years of practical experience. This manuscript provides the kind of hands-on guidance and practical suggestions that are often missing in most textbooks of this type."
-- John C. Worzbyt, Indiana University of Pennsylvania
