Paperback / softback

  • Information


This book addresses guidance and counselling needs of children and adolescents in school settings.

Acknowledging that most issues which children and adolescents face do not reach clinical settings and are often addressed by primary caregivers, the book focuses on specific strategies that primary caregivers can use.

With an overview of mental health concerns that arise during these developmental stages, the book focuses specifically on the roles that parents and teachers can play. Home and school together play vital roles in the lives of children and adolescents.

The book thus recognises the need for them to work together and uses examples from the field to build contexts in which school children and adolescents grow.

This is attempted in the backdrop of theories of psychology and mental health therapies.

The volume tries to bridge the gap between theory and practical applications of mental health in everyday life. This book would be useful to the students, researchers, and teachers working in the fields of education, psychology, development studies, social work, and sociology.

It would also be an invaluable companion to policy-makers, professionals from government and non-government organisations working around education and social development.
