Counseling Children and Adolescents gives students the information they need to prepare for work in both school and clinical mental health settings (two CACREP—Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs—specialty areas). This text includes not only content related to developmental and counseling theories but also information on evidence-based practices across the continuum of care, diagnosis and treatment of youth, and current trends such as integrated care, mindfulness, and neuroscience. Unique to this book are sections on both the instructional and behavioral Response to Intervention (RtI) model and PBIS, examples of evidence-based practices used across settings such as Student Success Skills, Check & Connect, and trauma-focused CBT, and a review of common mental health-related disorders most often seen in youth and treatment recommendations. Ethical and legal implications are infused throughout the book, as are CACREP learning outcomes. Instructors using this textbook can also turn to its companion website to access test questions for each chapter. Expansive and practical, Counseling Children and Adolescents fills a gap in counselor preparation programs and provides an important resource that can be used across specialty areas and coursework.
"In this book, child and adolescent counselors in school and clinical settings will find comprehensive and contemporary information for working with young clients. Ziomek-Daigle and the chapter authors have provided a thorough, highly readable resource that compiles theories, counseling strategies, and evidence-based practices into one compelling book. Case studies, setting-sensitive insights, and research are interwoven with compassion for both client and clinician. I highly recommend it as a must have for anyone working with young clients."

"Ziomek-Daigle’s Counseling Children and Adolescents is superior! Readers will enjoy the practical focus and clearly described evidence-based practices specific to counseling children and adolescents. The author skillfully infuses relevant and common ethical and legal issues in a most helpful manner. Counseling Children and Adolescents has practical applications for both entry-level counselors-in-training as well as more seasoned school and mental health counselors seeking evidence-based interventions for youth."

"Counseling Children and Adolescents is a ‘one-stop shop’ type of textbook that packs in everything: child development, assessment, diagnosis, ethics, evidence-based practices, and current trends. This book goes beyond most in addressing social justice advocacy for children and adolescents who experience immigration, trauma, natural disasters, and grief. Descriptions of creativity, expressive arts, and play therapy combined with details of evidence-based strategies will help readers fill their cart with practical tools."
Jennifer Baggerly, PhD, LPC-S, RPT-S, professor of counseling and play therapy, University of North Texas at Dallas
"Counseling Children and Adolescents is a masterfully written textbook that bridges valuable knowledge and insight with practical application. Diagnosis and treatment strategies are theoretically grounded, and thoughtfully conceptualized case illustrations frame the real-world challenges of children and adolescents. This book is both captivating and instructive, providing a wonderful foundation for counseling students and child, adolescent, and family practitioners. I wholeheartedly recommend it!"
