Klappentext (Mcgraw-Hill Publ.Comp.):
Key Concepts in Counselling and Psychotherapy: A critical A-Z guide to theory is a concise, readable review of the main concepts in the four dominant approaches to counselling and psychotherapy: the psychodynamic, humanistic-existential, cognitive behavioural and narrative. It provides:
- Definitions and brief discussions of each concept, with critical analysis of the evidence for and against its validity and value
- Brief biographical sketches of leading theorists, with the emphasis firmly on aspects and experiences which may have significantly influenced their ideas
- Carefully chosen, annotated references for individual follow-up - usually longer discussions and original research studies or reviews of research
This book is designed as a first source for students with an essay on counselling theory to write, a case study to analyse, a belief or assumption to challenge, or a question about someone, e.g. a client or themselves, to explore.
Using the popular alphabetical format and written in an accessible writing style, this book is easy to navigate, a must-have tool for trainee counsellors, counselling psychologists, coaches, mentors and others who use counselling skills in their intended careers. It will also appeal to practitioners wanting to refresh their knowledge of theory and research.
