Abstract

Counseling psychology and children, long thought to be mutually exclusive domains, in fact share complementary services and needs. In this article, historical and conceptual bases of counseling psychology are examined relative to their fit for work with children, from birth to 12 years of age. Attention is given to the mental health needs of today's children, and it is argued that counseling psychologists can make a legitimate contribution to the prevention and remediation of common problems that children encounter during the course of their development in a culturally diverse society.
