Series Basic Texts in Counselling and Psychotherapy

This book seeks to liberate and empower practitioners seeking to meet the needs of all the troubled children and young people who come to them for help. Walker fills a gap in the available literature by addressing the needs of the changing demographic and ethnic tapestry of contemporary multi-cultural societies. This book extends classical concepts embodied in psychodynamic and systemic theory and provides practitioners with contemporary resources that reflect the changing external characteristics of society.

He gained an MSc in Social Work and Social Policy at the LSE and qualified as a family therapist in 1992 after studying at the Tavistock Institute and the Institute of Family Therapy.
