Guidance and Counselling for Children and Adolescents in Schools provides a rich understanding of the challenges, problems and difficulties that children and adolescents face in adjusting to the contexts in which they live, grow and study.

Rendering ground realities within theoretical approaches to psychotherapy and mental health, it serves as a useful resource for practitioners and researchers in education.
