This book is an empirical study of naturally occurring interaction between
child counselling professionals and young children experiencing parental
separation or divorce. Based on tape recordings of the work of a London
child counselling practice, it offers the reader a unique and sustained
look inside the child counselling consultation room at the talk that occurs
there. The book uses conversation analysis against a backdrop of
sociological work in childhood and family studies to situate the discourse
of child counselling at an interface between the increasing incitement to
communicate in modern society, the growing recognition of children's social
competence and agency, and the enablements and constraints of institutional
forms of discourse participation. Chapters include overviews of recent
developments in the sociology of childhood and the sociolinguistics of
children's talk; conversation analysis and institutional discourse; and
detailed empirical studies of the linguistic techniques by which
counsellors draw out children's concerns about family trauma and the means
by which children, through talking and avoiding talking, either cooperate
in or resist their therapeutic subjectification.
This book will be of interest to readers in counselling psychology and
practitioners of child counselling; to researchers and advanced students in
social psychology, sociology and sociolinguistics; and to others interested
in childhood and family studies, interactionism, qualitative methodology
and conversation analysis.
