O'Brien, Patrick and Burnett, Paul C. (2000) The theory of multiple intelligences: implications for counseling children. Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 10 (1). pp. 145-156. ISSN 1037-2911

Abstract

These paper discuses the application of Gardner’s (1983) theory of multiple intelligences to the counseling of children, particularly young children who appear as repeat offenders in the school system. Specifically this paper seeks to answer the question: Does Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences have an application to counselling, and if so how would this theory impact on counselling practice? The results of this study suggest that Gardner’s theory does have application to professional counselling practice, particularly with children.
