Counselling in the Primary School: an Integrated Approach
Pages 15

In this chapter Peter Lang argues that in order for counselling to be effective in primary schools we need to take a broader definition of counselling than the traditional one of dealing with pupil problems. The approach needs to be an integrated one. The chapter raises a number of issues related to current perspectives and practice, including the argument that counselling in schools has proactive and pedagogical implications. He discusses what teachers might do to promote an integrated approach.
