Steeped in vivid case examples, therapeutic dialogue and points for reflection, Brief Counselling in Schools, Third Edition is a highly practical and accessible guide to helping and supporting young people experiencing difficulties both at home and at school or college. Covering issues from low self-esteem and sexuality, to substance misuse and aggression, Dennis Lines draws on a method of brief integrative counseling to illustrate how a time-limited therapy can work effectively in an often pressured and time-limited setting.

This chapter outlines a range of interventions for school counsellors to consider within a brief pluralistic perspective. Apart from supporting traditional counselling approaches applied briefly, this book will promote elements of Egan's three-stage model, solution-focused therapy, neuro-linguistic programming, motivational interviewing, narrative therapy and a range of social and coaching skills as utilised in cognitive-humanistic therapy. Outcome evidence in support of the efficacy of brief therapy is impressive, even though RCTs have not as yet validated all brief models. The rationale for those approaches and models drawn upon in this book is based primarily on the experience of practitioners and client satisfaction feedback.
