Tough Kids, Cool Counseling offers creative techniques for overcoming resistance, fostering constructive therapy relationships, and generating opportunities for client change and growth. This edition includes a new chapter on resistance busters and updated and fresh ideas for establishing rapport, carrying out informal assessments, improving negative moods, modifying maladaptive behaviors, and educating parents. Suicide assessment, medication referrals, and therapy termination are also discussed. John and Rita Sommers-Flanagan clearly enjoy working with kids—no matter how tough—and their infectious spirit and proven techniques will help you bring renewed energy into the counseling process. *Requests for digital versions from the ACA can be found on  *To request print copies, please visit the ACA website here:*Reproduction requests for material from books published by ACA should be directed to

“This second edition is even richer than the first—and I’ve worn the cover and a few pages, front and back, off my first edition copy—in that it is up-to-date and written in the authors’ heartfelt, unpretentious voice that makes this book as user-friendly as the approach they put forward.” —Kurt L. Kraus, EdD Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania “The authors’ emphasis is on techniques that will enhance counselors’ skills and build their repertoire of strategies to use to connect with children and adolescents.” —Tamara E. Davis, EdD Marymount University
