The School-Based Counselling Primer: A Concise, Accessible Introduction

Katherine McArthur

Research output: Book/ReportBook


School-based counselling is high on the health and education policy agendas. Every major political party has declared its belief in the importance of school-based counselling to the wellbeing of children and young people, both in the here and now and in the future, in supporting their continuing mental wellbeing and resilience through adulthood, parenthood and into old age. In this unique book, based on her own experience as a school counsellor and her extensive research with children and young people, Kate McArthur explains how school-based counselling works, why it works, what it can offer the individual child, their family, their school and the wider community, and the difference it can make - from the perspectives of the children and young people who have benefitted from it themselves.
