The book is targeted at all practitioners in the helping and enabling professions working with children and young people, and is essential reading for anyone undertaking training where elements of psychotherapy and counselling are requisite to practice.

As well as a guide for trainees in the helping professions, the book also speaks to advancing practitioners insofar as essential elements of the therapeutic relationship, such as containment, trust and transference, are re-cast in light of the modern challenges of working with children, especially young children. There are an increasing number of courses in the UK (and abroad) which focus on developing practitioners who are delivering early interventions for mental health issues and so Essential Ingredients of Counselling and Psychotherapy with Children and Young People offers a strong underpinning with a particular focus that offers a marker for the development of the special interest section of the UKCP.

Psychotherapy with children and young people has traditionally rooted practitioners in psychoanalytic theory. Essential Ingredients of Counselling and Psychotherapy with Children and Young People pays heed to this lineage with a fresh perspectives on what are the ingredients in practice which will tackle the impediment to flourishing in children.
