5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for budding existential therapists, 22 May 2005
By 
Tim (London, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Existential Therapies (Paperback)
Existential therapy is an increasingly popular approach.
Until now, though, each proponent of existential therapy - Yalom, Frankl, van Deurzen, Spinelli and the rest - have written almost as if they were inventing the approach. The field is now mature enough for a knowledgable, sympathetic practioner to survey the field and compare the approaches.
Mick Cooper, a UKCP registered therapist, has written such a book. He takes each approach and describes it and then critiques it in such a way as to give the reader a good idea of its strengths and weaknesses.
The title shows Coopers own view - which is surely right - that there is not just one existential therapy, but a whole range of existential therapies.
Cooper is also good at making this sometimes complicated-sounding approach understandable, and provides an accessible introduction to some of the philosophical ideas behind it.
Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for learning more about Existentialism, 3 Nov 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Existential Therapies (Paperback)
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and Mick Cooper writes in a really accessible way. Some of the book needed a lot of concentration from me to try and understand the concepts he looked at, but this did not detract from my enjoyment.

I found the 'further reading' section at the end of each chapter to be really useful and have since ordered further books from some of the lists.

I have certainly 'got the bug' for learning more about Existential Therapy and for trying to incorporate it into my practice eventually (I am on the final year of my Counselling Diploma course).

I think it's certainly a book to read if you're unsure and curious about the Existential approach and maybe, like me, it will fuel your desire to learn more.
