Book Description

18 Dec 2009 1848604440 978-1848604445 Second Edition
Now in its second edition, this book is established reading for any practitioner or trainee wishing to develop their own personal style of working. As well as examining contemporary integrative approaches, the authors show how to develop an individual approach to integrating theories and methods from a range of psychotherapies.

Offering clear strategies for integration rather than a new therapeutic model , this practical new edition:

- puts added emphasis on the integrative framework, and procedural strategies, extending discussion of the individual practitioner as integrator

- is accessible for the new trainee, whilst posing questions for discussion and reflection for the more experienced practitioner

- integrates recent thinking and research in psychotherapy, human development and neuroscience

- discusses how developments in relational approaches impact on integration in practice

- addresses integration within humanistic, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural and existential approaches.

This book should be on the desk of every trainee studying integrative counselling and psychotherapy, as well as on the shelves of practitioners wanting to develop their own personal frameworks for therapy.

More About the Author

Phil Lapworth is a psychotherapist and supervisor near Bath. Phil has written extensively on the theory and practice of therapy, notably, with Charlotte Sills, books on Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Integration in Counselling and Psychotherapy. His book of fictional short stories 'Tales from the Therapy Room: Shrink-Wrapped' further reflects his interest in, and encouragement of, an integrative, personal approach to psychotherapy.

Product Description


"Scholarly, dynamic, thought provoking. The multidimensional framework provided by Lapworth and Sills continue to engages successfully with the paradox of integrative work: a highly personal approach to therapy, resting on the integrity and judgement of the individual practitioner - and, at the same time, the way of working most likely to enable us to remain true to our values and ethics whilst managing the huge collective political and regulatory challenges our field faces in the years ahead." - Professor Andrew Samuels, University of Essex

I found this book very useful for writing an essay on Integration in counselling. Pretty easy to read. Not sure if I would have bothered without the essay to write but hey I learnt a few things.
