For counsellors, therapists, trainees and others who want a deeper understanding of how society affects them psychologically, the revised and updated edition of Feminist Counselling in Action is the ideal resource. Drawing on feminist theory, Jocelyn Chaplin points to the deeply entrenched, hierarchical ways of thinking which permeate every level of our lives. The author presents an alternative rhythm model that when applied in counselling increases self-confidence, `wholeness' and improved relationships. In this model, the counsellor is not seen as the expert or the doctor, and the client is not a patient. They are two equal but different people using `clues' to understand and improve the life of the client. To illu

Knowledge is never static. It is always open to revolutionary thinking or to evolving development. Similarly an individual's knowledge is always moving, and indeed if the ability to think about ideas is lost, an important part of the individual is also lost. In this book, a collection of some of the papers and lectures written by Michael Jacobs over a period of thirty or more years, the author shows his own thinking at work, as he challenges himself to look deeper at some important aspects of his discipline - principally psychodynamic psychotherapy, although always with reference to other forms of discourse such as literature and theology. Here the reader will find the writer behind those popular texts such as The Presenting Past, Psychodynamic Counselling in Action and Shakespeare on the Couch.

Long Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Long-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: A Basic Text takes a hands-on approach, focusing on the fundamental principles and basic features of the psychodynamic modality for the benefit of training directors and trainees in a variety of mental health fields. This new, meticulously updated edition offers the latest research on the foundations, techniques, and efficacy of psychodynamic psychotherapy, while still providing the basic information on assessment, indications, formulations, therapist interventions, goals of therapy, and mechanisms of therapeutic action that all mental health professionals require in order to provide excellent care. The author, one of the foremost authorities on psychotherapy, recognizes the common dilemmas experienced by beginning therapists and students, and he has designed the book so that the case examples -- and principles illustrated by those examples -- are directly applicable to learning and practice. Noteworthy and unique to this volume are the expanded videos, which allows students to see clinical concepts in action through the use of carefully constructed clinical vignettes. Each chapter has been thoroughly revised, and the new edition boasts a substantial amount of new material and enhanced coverage. Literature on the empirical evidence supporting the efficacy of psychodynamic therapy, increasingly the focus of rigorous clinical trials, has been added to Chapter 2. The videos, originally provided as a companion DVD and now available online, have been expanded with two new case study vignettes and now include two vignettes of the same patient during and at the termination of therapy. This satisfies the need of trainees in psychotherapy to study senior clinicians at work and to see how the concepts and data in the field are applied to individual treatments. The recent ubiquity of texting, e-mailing, social media, and other cyberspace communications in the practice of psychotherapy is covered in Chapter 3. Practical, hands-on applications, such as case write-ups, oral presentations at case conferences, written examinations, oral examinations, videotaped recordings and direct observations, audiotape recordings, and supervision are covered in depth to help build solid skills and broad knowledge. As useful to educators as it is to students, Long-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy explains the theoretical foundations and elucidates the reasoning behind the psychotherapist's actions in a wide variety of clinical situations, challenging the reader to build empathy and competency.

This book deals with what is perhaps the central question in therapy - who is the therapist? And how does that actually come across and manifest itself in the therapeutic relationship? A good deal of the thinking about this in psychoanalysis has come under the heading of countertransference. Much of the thinking in the humanistic approaches has come under such headings as empathy, genuineness, nonpossessive warmth, presence, personhood.

This supportive book examines the sources of stress for counsellors and the practical strategies that they can use to overcome it. Stress may emerge in the work that counsellors do with specific client groups, in the contexts in which counselling takes place and in the educational process both for counsellor educators and for counsellors in training. In this book, practising counsellors with first-hand experience of dealing with stress examine the nature of the stresses that counsellors face in these different areas, detail the typical responses (both healthy and unhealthy) that counsellors make and suggest methods for improved coping. An opening chapter sets these personal experiences into context by reviewing the research literature on counsellor stress.

How can you help clients get the most out of the counseling experience? The authors of this clear and accessible volume outline the key principles of Personal Construct Theory. They discuss and illustrate how the starting point of counseling is a careful exploration of the ways in which a client construes his or her world through credulous listening to all the client says and does not say. They describe the range of methods which may be used to help a counselor and client learn about these constructions and their implications, including self characterizations and the repertory grid technique. In addition, the authors show how the counselor and client, together devise experiments for change through which the client can try out new and more rewarding ways of interpreting and acting. A number of approaches to facilitate change are discussed and exemplified, . The book concludes with a detailed case-study of the counseling process with one particular client. "This is an informative book which is concise, well written and with no shortage of clinical examples. It should be relevant to all who are interested in counselling and psychotherapy and it may just whet some appetites for more." --British Journal of Psychology "One of the excellent series 'Counselling in Action'. . . . If you want to know about Personal Construct counselling, this is for you." --Self and Society "The book provides a very readable introduction that is to be commended.

Can a counselor's or client's culture affect the counseling process? Should counselors confine themselves to counseling only those from their own culture? Transcultural Counselling in Action offers a new approach to the counseling process that addresses the problems often posed by cultural differences. Drawing on examples from community groups, liaison and advocacy workers, mental health specialists, and from professionals already working with other cultures, this practical volume walks the counselor through the transcultural counseling process. Main themes are summarized, the response of professionals to the process are evaluated, and the implications for counseling in a multicultural society are addressed. With so little literature existing on transcultural counseling, this volume will serve as an essential guide to anyone working with groups or individuals from other cultures. "The book serves its purpose well, in terms of both the transcultural issues highlighted and the handling of issues arising in the process of transcultural counseling." --Contemporary Psychology "The fundamental assumptions made by the authors . . . are evident throughout the book and highlight the need for the reader to question their personal stance on these issues. This in itself is a useful exercise for the transcultural counsellor. . . . This book meets its aim of providing guidelines of good practice in counselling." --New Community

As one need is fulfilled, another arises, itself seeking fulfilment. If this natural cycle is interrupted, difficulties occur. This book provides a clear guide to Gestalt therapy. It is designed to follow the developmental stages in the counselling process; Petruska Clarkson relates the cycle of formation and destruction to the different stages, and provides extensive examples of treatment and the specific techniques appropriate to each step and to different kinds of clients.

'A very practical text that provides professionals new to this arena with a good introduction to what they can expect to encounter in online work. The book contains numerous thought-provoking examples and exercises for those contemplating work in virtual arenas' - Terry Hanley, Lecturer in Counselling, University of Manchester `It's tempting to think that face-to-face experience translates straightforwardly to online work. But it doesn't. Jane Evans shows how many different aspects there are to counselling on-line... My advice would be, don't attempt it until you have worked through this book' - Professor Michael Jacobs, author of Psychodynamic Counselling in Action Counsellors - and other professionals who provide emotional support and guidance - are increasingly working online. The difference between online and face-to-face interaction with clients is vast and practitioners need to equip themselves with specialist knowledge and skills to ensure that they are being effective. Online Counselling and Guidance Skills is the first book to deal with the practicalities of this mode of working. It looks at how practitioners need to adapt their basic counselling skills to the online environment and guides them through the process of setting up, defining and maintaining a working relationship with a client within professional, ethical and legal boundaries. Case studies and extracts from online sessions show how the skills are put into practice, while practical exercises and points for further consideration help readers to develop their own knowledge and skills. Until now, books and articles have generally focused on the therapeutic work done by counsellors online. However, this book addresses people who use counselling skills in a wide range of contexts; including counselling, education, mental health, social care and careers guidance.
