Title: Compendium of practices for including children in family sessions
Authors: Carr, Alan
Permanent link:
Date: 2002
Abstract: The approach to involving children in family counselling described here is based on three principles. First, at an ethical level children have a right to participate in the process of solving problems of living which they and their families face. Second, at a pragmatic level counselling has a better chance of success if those involved in the problem, including children, participate in the solution. Third, at a theoretical level, methods of engaging children in counselling must be based on an integration of therapeutic practices and an appreciation of the psychology of child development. A fuller account of the use of these techniques in the practice of family therapy and child and adolescent clinical psychology are contained elsewhere.
