"This Handbook is fabulous, I couldn't put it down!  Each chapter makes a significant contribution, and together they offer the best breadth and depth of information on coaching psychology that is currently available. Practicing Coaches will find it an invaluable resource as both theory and case examples are clearly presented in an organized and well-written manner." - Professor Carol Kauffman, Founding Director of the Coaching Psychology Institute at Harvard Medical School, USA

Format: Paperback
An excellent foundation textbook for anyone aspiring to understand the psychological background to a number of coaching techniques. Easy to read and understand, it is neatly segmented and while establishing the ground for the separate consideration of
"coaching psychology" it also gives you an opportunity to understand your "approach" to coaching and consider what you might wish to investigate for your own practice

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Handbook of Coaching Psychology: A Guide for Practitioners gives a well-rounded view of the different, evidence-based approaches coaching psychologists may take when working with coachees. From solution-focused coaching to gestalt coaching via cognitive behavioural coaching and motivational interviewing, this book demonstrates just what an eclectic bunch we coaching psychologists are! It is clearly written for practitioners (as it says in the title) and both new and experienced coaches will find it informative and accessible.

The handbook was written at a time when the British Psychological Society had only three years previously established its Special Group in Coaching Psychology, so a timely publication for an emerging field of psychology. It is authored/edited by 28 highly credible practitioners, many of whom are ‘big name’ academics in the field, including the dynamic and inspiring Anthony Grant (founder and director of Sydney University’s coaching psychology unit and co-author of Evidence Based Coaching Handbook, 2006); Elaine Cox (Oxford Brookes university and editor of International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring); Professor Stephen Palmer (instrumental in the setting up of the British Psychological Society’s Special Group in Coaching Psychology and director of City University’s coaching psychology unit) and Alex Linley (previously Visiting Professor of Psychology at the University of Leicester).

The handbook is divided into four sections: Perspectives and research in coaching psychology (2 chapters); Coaching psychology: approaches (11 chapters); Understanding relationships, diversity and development in coaching and coaching psychology (5 chapters) and Sustainable practice (2 chapters).

Very useful book, particularly the analysis of the various theories of coaching psychology and how each theory is illustrated using a case study which enables the reader to understand how the theory could be applied in practice.
