From the Paper:" This paper looks at the issue of mental and emotional disorders in children and adolescents and the need for counseling in treating such disorders. It uses the second edition of Larry B. Golden's Case Studies in Child and Adolescent Counseling to study some of the principal ways in which problems arise and are treated, especially in short-term treatment sessions. Children and adolescents present a different set of problems from those of adult patients. Because of their age, they are at a different stage of personality development than are adults, and developmental differences must be taken into account in diagnosing and treating them. Also, the families, teachers, and other social systems of which young patients are a part must be included in treatment and are often significant factors in understanding the problem. "
