Neuroscience-Informed Counseling with Children and Adolescents
Field, Thomas A.; Ghoston, Michelle R.
American Counseling Association
This innovative text is the first to illustrate how neuroscience concepts can be translated and applied to counseling with children and adolescents. Drs. Field and Ghoston discuss general principles for child and adolescent counseling before examining neurophysiological development from birth to age 18. They then provide in-session examples of neuroscience-informed approaches to behavior modification, play therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, biofeedback, neurofeedback, and therapeutic lifestyle change with diverse clients in a variety of settings. Each chapter contains knowledge and skill-building material for counselors-in-training; counselor educators; and practitioners in schools, hospitals, residential facilities, and outpatient clinics. Text features include learning objectives, alignment with the CACREP Standards specific to child and adolescent counseling, explanatory diagrams, reflection questions to prompt deep processing of the material, case vignettes to demonstrate how to apply neuroscience concepts to counseling work, and quiz questions to test knowledge of key concepts. In addition, the text includes an extensive neuroscience glossary.
