From the Back Cover
This book is an excellent course text for training new counsellors in basic and more advanced counselling micro-skills which come from a number of therapeutic approaches. It enables new trainees to learn how to integrate these skills within a sequential counselling process. It is an easy to read introduction to counselling which teachers will find particularly useful because it contains the following:
- A wide variety of examples to illustrate each counselling micro-skill
- Practice examples of client statements for students with suggested counsellor response
- Client statements, without solutions, for use by teachers in helping students to learn particular micro-skills
- An explanation of the therapeutic approaches related to particular micro-skills
- A description of a sequential integrative process which enables students to make informed choices about which skills to use at particular stages of the counselling process
- A discussion of the way to combine skills to facilitate change
- A discussion of a number of practical issues including cultural and ethical issues, the counselling environment, keeping records, the need for supervision, and the need for the counsellor to look after themselves
