Counseling the adolescent: what changes has the internet (and technology) wrought?
The adolescent in the year 2015 is quite unlike the adolescent of 20 years past. Counselors need to be sensitive to the world view of these students, and be aware of the fact that the adolescent may have a totally different perspective on life, liberty and their pursuit of happiness, and perhaps be less capable of coping with emotions, and interpersonal issues and agendas. This paper explores some of these issues and provides some guidance for counselor trainers.
