About the Author

Dr Andrew Reeves has worked as a counsellor and supervisor in various setting for over twenty years. Originally qualified as a social worker, he specialised in child protection and adult mental health before moving to working full-time as a counsellor at the University of Liverpool. Following the death by suicide of one of his clients early in his career, he undertook extensive research into ways in which counsellors and psychotherapists work with suicidal clients and he has written extensively about this since. His recent book with SAGE, Counselling Suicidal Clients (2010) has quickly become a popular title, as has Key Issues for Counselling in Action: Second Edition, which he co-edited with Prof Windy Dryden. His award-winning training DVD, Tight Ropes and Safety Nets: Counselling Suicidal Clients (with Jon Shears and Sue Wheeler) is now being used by many therapy training programmes throughout the UK.

His new book, An Introduction to Counselling and Psychotherapy: From Theory to Practice (2012) has several aims: to help provide prospective students of counselling and psychotherapy with information to support their training decisions; to help integrate theory into their early steps in working with clients on a practice placement; and to help bridge the move from qualification into practice as a therapist.

He has other new projects in the pipeline, including editing the new series, Essential Issues for Counselling and Psychotherapy in which he will be writing the new title, Working with Risk in Counselling and Psychotherapy, as well as working with Windy Dryden on the sixth edition of the bestselling SAGE text, The Handbook of Individual Therapy.

Format: Paperback
I am so glad I bought this book. Andrew Reeves has brought together in one edition the most important practical and theoretical issues surrounding counselling and psychotherapy with suicidal clients.

Having previously attended a workshop run by Andrew Reeves and being deeply impressed by his knowledge and honestly as well as his humanity I awaited my pre-ordered copy with excitement.

This book is a huge leap forward in assisting practitioners to better understand suicidal risk in the context of their own practice. Reeves is deeply respectful of the individual differences in therapists practice. He doesn't tell you the 'right' way to do this - rather helps therapists understand what the meaning behind their own way of working with suicidal clients is, and how research can and should be utilised to inform practice. This will support therapists in working within legal, ethical and personal philosophical boundaries and help them consider the meaning of suicidal feelings, thoughts and behaviour with their clients. It will also challenge managers and trainers to take another look at how they consider suicide within their organisations which can only be of benefit to clients - even if nothing is changed, it will be in awareness based in the consideration of systematic research.

Starting from the often heard statement 'counsellors don't work with suicidal clients' which is so different than the reality for many practicing counsellors Reeves examines the reasons behind such assumptions and the way they effect practice.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book to qualified and trainee therapists alike, as well as anyone who may use counselling skills in their work.
