Product Description

Review

'This latest edition of the classic text Existential Counselling and Psychotherapy in Practice preserves the accessibility and focus on actual practice which made the original essential reading for all existential therapists, while incorporating new material on working with emotions and dreams, alongside valuable suggestions in every chapter for discussion and reflection. It is authoritative without being dogmatic, and in the honesty and clarity with which it presents this most lively and vibrant way of working cannot fail to inspire any therapist wishing to engage creatively with the problems of living which clients bring to the consulting room' -

Professor Simon du Plock, Metanoia Institute & Middlesex University


'In this third edition of the classic, Existential Counselling and Psychotherapy in Practice, Deurzen offers her confident down-to-earth account of existential practice now with a valuable new overview of the philosophers who have influenced this perspective. She manages to show concretely how existential philosophy is practiced without reducing it to doctrine or method. The text provides an antidote to the contemporary thinning out, through technique and expertise, of what psychotherapy should be; a vigorous and passionate dialogue about human life and how to live it. Highly readable and inspiring, this text remains a stalwart within the increasing literature on existential therapies' -
Greg Madison, PhD., author, The End of Belonging and co-editor of the Journal of Existential Analysis and Existential Therapy: Legacy, Vibrancy and Dialogue

Format: Paperback
Emmy is rightfully known as the foremost teacher, writer and speaker on existential philosophy and psychotherapy in the world today. Her books have been translated into many languages, bringing the messages of Heidegger, Jaspers and Sartre, together with her own unique philosophical stance on life, to a worldwide audience. This book is an essential read for any trainee or practising mental health professional who wants to find out more about existential ideas and how to apply them in their work with clients. Full of practical illustrations, this book allows professional or lay person alike to familiarise themselves with powerful reflections on human existence, from Aristotle and the ancient Greeks to the British, Continental and American existentialism of the present day. It also contains invaluable pointers as to how these reflections can revitalise our own experience of being human. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to make the most of being alive or to help others deal with life's challenges and absurdity.
