5.0 out of 5 stars A Much Needed Practical Perspective, 12 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Skills in Existential Counselling & Psychotherapy (Skills in Counselling & Psychotherapy Series) (Paperback)
The tradition of existential psychotherapy has been dogged by its reputation as a vague, overly academic and ultimately impractical discipline since inception. Therapists have been given an emphasis on being and not doing, and any apprehensions they might have as to how they should actually act in the relationship is passed off as being grist for the mill of anxiety.

This book begins to construct a very clear set of practical guidelines for the existential therapist to follow, while at same time staying with the strong philosophical and client-focused tradition it springs from. Therapists are given a framework of understanding anxiety and depression that is highly adaptable to clients and other varying models, while at the same time allowing an understanding of existential givens to inform the work.

The book is well structured into punchy chapters, regular fly-outs and sub-sections that allow the user to quickly navigate the text and pull out useful sections as and when needed. Its regular mix of formats and styles means that the existentialism, content that is far too often presented as inaccessibly as possible, is made very available for both the persuser and the cover to cover reader alike.
