Great book for a detailed view
on 1 April 2006
This is a great book for people studting counselling. It covers all major theorys - but is more based on the development and application to Britsh counselling. It has reviews from modern British counsellors in each field with descriptions of the theory , its history and a client excample.However it is a heavy, detailed read and if you are on a beginners course -I might recommend more accesable books. It however is good for a more detailed look at theorys and is one of the best theory books I have- Windy dryden is a great writer.But I tend to use other books like Margaret Hough & Ray Colledge for a good ,easier explination ( and especailly for introduction courses).
This is a great investment book, and good for more indepth information and definately in the top end of theory books- it all depends on your personal requirements.
