Product Description

Review

`This new edition meets the challenges of counselling today and brings alive issues that have arisen in the last twenty years, adding up to an important new text for inclusion in counsellor training' - Colin Feltham, Course Leader in Counselling & Psycholtherapy, Sheffield Hallam University

About the Author

Windy Dryden is Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies as well as being the Programme Co-ordinator of the MSc in Rational-Emotive and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

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.

These "In Action" books are great for counselling students. I would say that whilst I studied at College I was unaware of these books much to my dismay but now at uni these books are fundamental to my learning. I have about four of the books from the series so far and each book can interlink with each other and bridge the gaps between the approaches. I dont see one area of therapy as being better or more practical than another. I just see them all with the same goal - to help the client. And these books certainly increse your personal development as well as theoretical knowledge to do just that.

The books are all concise and this book helps to teach the Counsellor about tackling the key issues involeved in the helping relationship from start to finish.
As it says in the description dealing with the issues ranging from trust, reluctancy and transference. It is a definite added edition to my counselling knowledge and theory. And will add numerous quotations to my assignments for years to come.

It is a definite must for anyone starting to learn about therapy through to being fully qualified. One thing I found was these books were not on the colleges recommended reading lists. And if i had known about them I would of benefited. Reading and theory did not seem to be fundamental to the college. Which was a shame considering how far I have come reading more and more this last year.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book, i have read a number of books from the counselling in action series and have been impressed by most of them. This is a great book for trainee counsellors to understand the role of the counsellor in relationships, their structure and formation, the impact of (and testing of) trust in the relationship and the practical implications. There are also a few chapters on the impact of transference and counter-transference in the counselling relationship with examples that are easy to transfer to own's own experiences.

This is an excellent book, requested by our Russian colleagues. It will be shared amongst them and have a wide audience. A well-thought out basic 'textbook'.
