Theory and Practice Made Plain,

This review is from: Counselling Young People (Paperback)Although, sadly, Ms Noonan is no longer with us, her excellent book is still essential for the student counsellor trying to trace a path through the thicket of Psychodynamic theory. Given the plethora of analysts who followed Freud and developed his ideas, often disagreeing with them, and the resultant, confusing melange of concepts and terminology, Ellen Noonan's focus and clarity of expression offer a methodical explication of the key aspects of a therapeutic alliance, using case studies of adolescent clients as the homogenising agent.
Having worked through a considerable number of counselling textbooks, on all orientations, this is one that I would unhesitatingly recommend.
