Human Givens therapy recognises and addresses innate needs - or 'givens' - common to all humans. The innovative approach is a highly effective way of dealing with the emotional difficulties faced by young people, and this book covers everything the practitioner needs to know about its theory and practice.
This comprehensive resource offers an essential insight into the emotional well-being of adolescents and a detailed overview of the Human Givens approach, its therapeutic structure and potential outcomes. With a detailed exploration of each Human Givens need, the book provides useful assessment tools and practical interventions, all supported by photocopiable materials that include question sheets for the client and record charts for the practitioner. The book concludes with an informative case study taken from the author's research, which consists of a session-by-session therapeutic outline designed to communicate exactly how Human Givens works in practice.
This complete guide to Human Givens therapy will equip educational, clinical and social care professionals working with adolescents with all they need to know to put this effective approach into action.

"I’ve found Human Givens to be especially useful with children and adolescents because they generally crave interactions with others who give them their full attention, and are interested in what they have to say. They take well to setting their own goals, and identifying their personal resources, which helps them to address their areas of difficulty. They also enjoy working creatively to build up their skills, and meet their needs, which the approach allows for."
