Why should modern psychotherapists be interested in philosophy, especially ancient philosophy? Why should philosophers be interested in psychotherapy? There is a sense of mutual attraction between what are, today, two thoroughly distinct disciplines. However, arguably it was not always the case that they were distinct. This book traces the origins of modern cognitive behavioral therapy, noting a clear analogy with ancient philosophy. Robertson skillfully combines the clinical experience of therapy and the academic grasp of philosophy to write in depth.

Why do I need to learn about CBT and/or the Person-centred Approach? What can these techniques contribute to my counselling training and practice? This book has some of the answers, showing humanistic, CBT and integrative therapists how to get to grips with each other's approaches. CBT has become more fully present in the therapeutic landscape and therapists from other modalities are increasingly being required to understand or even train in the approach. Responding to this growing pressure for change, Person-centred therapist Roger Casemore joins forces with Jeremy Tudway. Together they show how counsellors can respect and value each other's approaches by more clearly understanding the similarities and differences in theory, philosophy and practice. They clarify how therapists draw upon this knowledge in their practice without betraying the values of their core approach. This book is recommended for anyone studying Person-centred or CBT modules on counselling & psychotherapy courses, or experienced practitioners wishing to adapt their practice for NHS settings. Roger Casemore is currently an Associate Fellow in Lifelong Learning at the University of Warwick and has a private practice as a therapist and supervisor of other therapists, based in Worcester. Jeremy Tudway is a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and a director of Phoenix Psychological Services, Warwickshire. In addition to this he lectures in CBT at the University of Warwick.

'About things that are within our power and those that are not.' Epictetus's Discourses have been the most widely read and influential of all writings of Stoic philosophy, from antiquity onwards. They set out the core ethical principles of Stoicism in a form designed to help people put them into practice and to use them as a basis for leading a good human life. Epictetus was a teacher, and a freed slave, whose discourses have a vivid informality, animated by anecdotes and dialogue. Forceful, direct, and challenging, their central message is that the basis of happiness is up to us, and that we all have the capacity, through sustained reflection and hard work, of achieving this goal. They still speak eloquently to modern readers seeking meaning in their own lives. This is the only complete modern translation of the Discourses, together with the Handbook or manual of key themes, and surviving fragments. Robin Hard's accurate and accessible translation is accompanied by Christopher Gill's full introduction and comprehensive notes. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

The stoics lived a long time ago, but they had some startling insights into the human condition - insights which endure to this day. The philosophical tradition, founded in Athens by Zeno of Citium in 301 BC, endured as an active movement for almost 500 years, and contributions from dazzling minds such as Cicero, Seneca and Marcus Aurelius helped create a body of thought with an extraordinary goal - to provide a rational, healthy way of living in harmony with the nature of the universe and in respect of our relationships with each other. In many ways a precursor to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Stoicism provides an armamentarium of strategies and techniques for developing psychological resilience, while celebrating all in life which is beautiful and important. By learning what stoicism is, you can revolutionise your life and learn how to seize the day, live happily and be a better person. This simple, empowering book shows how to use this ancient wisdom to make practical, positive changes to your life. Using thought-provoking case studies, highlighting key ideas and things to remember and providing tools for self-assessment, it demonstrates that Stoicism is a proven, profound pathway to happiness.

Reason Virtue And Psychotherapy

In recent years philosophy has become increasingly popular as an alternative source of inspiration in helping people to lead a good life. Ancient Greek philosophy in particular was conceived as a practical endeavour intended to have an impact on how people lived. This book, loosely organised around the structure of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, draws on Aristotle’s ideas about virtue and on contemporary virtue ethics to create a framework that can be used by psychotherapists and counsellors in helping their clients – or themselves – to live flourishing lives. It provides a clear discussion of Aristotle’s key ideas about virtue and the good life and places these within the context of other philosophical and psychological theories, both ancient and contemporary. It goes on to address the practical relevance of these ideas to the everyday work of the therapist, providing suggestions for practice and a number of useful exercises. These will be particularly helpful for practitioners working with issues such as finding value and meaning in life, making difficult decisions, developing helpful character traits, managing disruptive emotions and increasing self-control. Reason, Virtue and Psychotherapy bridges the gap between academic philosophy and real life. It will be of interest to practising counsellors and psychotherapists as well as students and trainees in these areas. Since it is written in a clear, jargon-free style, it is also appropriate for all those who are curious about how ancient understandings can improve their life.
