This book provides the professional counselor with a variety of ways to expand strategies toward interventions when dealing with children and adolescents.
Utilizing games, music, visual arts, expressive writing, literature and drama, and an assortment of experiential interventions, Counseling Outside the Lines delivers an effective resource to counselors allowing them to positively impact those they serve. Included with this title are over 80 interventions for 3 development levels and over 75 useful forms and handouts created for children and adolescents from diverse cultures.
