Product Description

Review

`An interesting overview of medical and psychiatric issues that may arise for counsellors... readable, lucid and free of jargon. The issues addressed include referral and assessment, ongoing counselling and supervision, medical conditions and their treatment, psychiatric conditions and their treatment, and ethical and legal issues... it raises awareness of some important issues to consider when working with clients with medical and psychiatric conditions' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling

`Such a broad focus for a small book... and how efficiently covered! [It] is relevant and thought-provoking all the way... This book raises the [medical and psychiatric] issues and makes constructive suggestions for resolution of them... Boxes of helpful checklists... pop up at relevant points throughout the text for handy reference... for practising counsellors and those in the latter part of training, it can certainly be regarded as essential reading' - Counselling News

This text was very helpful when I used to lecture to my students whoare counsellors inthe making. Readers are well advised to use it specifically for students. Counsellors may wishtoavail themselves of purchasing this text to be used in their own practices.
