Time to Listen to Childrenis a practical guide to effective communication with children. Professionals working with children in a variety of settings examine the skills required to help children articulate their problems and feelings. They discuss issues such as training, cultural background and religion and give accounts of their work in the following settings:
* social services
* voluntary organizations
* medical settings
Contributors practice a variety of therapeutic techniques, including play, music and art therapy.
Time to Listen to Childrenwill be a valuable resource for social workers, teachers and counsellors in training and for all professionals who wish to adopt a skilled, reflective and active approach to their work with children.
