'Working with the person beyond their diagnosis is an essential skill for all psychological therapists. This critical exploration of diagnosis and its alternatives makes a valuable and refreshing contribution to our field: helping us to deepen our capacity to relate to our clients as the diverse, meaning-orientated and intelligible human beings that they are.' --Professor Mick Cooper, University of Strathclyde
- thoughtful attempts by counselling psychologists in practice to go beyond diagnosis and instead to engage with clients in a manner which is respectful of the urgency and yet also of the complexity of their distress. --Dr Bill Farrell,Research Fellow, Auckland University of Technology
