It is increasingly understood that to counsel children and adolescents effectively requires specialized skills: simply adapting techniques developed for adults will not work. Drawing on the work of Bowlby, Winnicott and others, Linda Hopper here gives a brief introduction to the emotional development of young people and shows how play and other creative means can be used to help them to express their inner feelings. In a comprehensive overview of the area, she also discusses issues of difference and identity, the counselling process and ethical issues in counselling children. The author's wide experience of working with children and adolescents shines through in vivid case studies covering a range of clients, contexts and difficulties. Offering a judicious balance of theory and practical discussion, Counselling and Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents focuses on the essential knowledge needed to work therapeutically with children. It is thus an ideal foundation text for students undertaking training in child counselling, either as part of their initial training or in post-qualification professional development.

Praise for the First Edition: `This is the Second Edition of a book first published in 1992 as part of the Key Figures in Counselling and Psychotherapy series edited by Windy Dryden. It has proved a successful introduction to the life and work of Sigmund Freud: in this present edition Michael Jacobs takes the opportunity of the new translation of Freud now appearing to offer more suggestions about reading, particularly the papers of technique available through Virago's 2001 publication of the Standard Edition' - The Journal of Analytical Psychology In refreshing contrast to most other books on Sigmund Freud, this is a highly accessible account of his life and ideas, which focuses on the relevance of Freud's work for contemporary approaches to counselling and psychotherapy. The book provides an overview which is based firmly on Freud's own writings, but which goes far beyond a recapitulation of the existing literature, to offer fresh insights and some surprises, both about Freud the man and his theories. Written by bestselling author, Michael Jacobs and now fully updated for its Second Edition, Sigmund Freud presents and responds to the criticisms that Freud's work attracted, and charts his continuing influence in the 21st century. This is highly recommended reading for those training in counselling and psychotherapy as well as those studying Freud in other contexts. Michael Jacobs is a retired lecturer in Counselling Studies and bestselling author whose publications include (in the same series), D W Winicott (SAGE, 1995) and Psychodynamic Counselling in Action, Second Edition (SAGE, 1999).

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. The authors provide useful summaries of repertory grids, fixed role therapy, self-characterization, and other methods for helping people change." --International Review of Psychology

I found particularly useful and clear their systematic treatment of types of emotional cognitions with appropriate interventions...

The authors trace the steps appropriate at different stages in the counselling process, constantly relating practice to theory.

The step-by-step guide is backed up by easily accessible resource material, particularly on the two most important aspects of cognitive-behavioural counselling: methods of intervention and the setting of homework. Finally, guidance is offered on its application to specific emotional problems: anxiety, depression, anger/aggression, shame and guilt.

`The book's strength is the stimulus to discussion encouraged by its variety of approaches and topics and its clear and economical writing. Windy Dryden's intelligent discussion questions (such questions are so often done badly) at the end of each article seem especially valuable in this connection: they not only focus squarely on each reader's experience of the issues in question, but often subtly encourage the reader to question the premises of the article just read... a stimulating and valuable book, well suited to its intended readership' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling This concise and practical book tackles the key issues which all counsellors, regardless of their theoretical orientation, e

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

Counsellors frequently work with people who are under stress or who are distressed - but counselling them can itself be a highly stressful activity. 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) tha

A practical, comprehensive guide to person-centred therapy, this volume examines and explains the theoretical principles involved by relating these principles to actual practice. Drawing from case studies, the authors present an extensive exploration of the core conditions of empathy, acceptance, and congruence. In addition, they offer a step-by-step account of both the counselor's and client's experience of being involved in a trusting, caring relationship. Psychologists, counselors, social workers, and mental health professionals interested will find this volume an indispensable introduction to the person-centered approach to therapy. "The first systematic, comprehensive text about this approach since Carl Rogers' own Client Centred Therapy of 1951. . . . Their discussion of empathy, acceptance and congruence is central and should be required reading for all trainees working to understand the richness of these core concepts." --The Journal of the British Association for Counselling "This is a marvelous book; highly recommended. Someone has finally written an easily accessible book about the theory and practice--mostly practice--of the kind of therapy that makes the most sense to many focuses." --The Focusing Connection "The first comprehensive and systematic text concerning the Client-Centred/Person-Centred approach since Roger's book 'Client Centred Therapy' (1951). . . . The importance of Unconditional Positive Regard, the skillful conveying of tenderness, and building of trust are well explained and described with lots of case study examples." --Guidance Matters "This book fully lives up to its title and the intent of the series, is readable and succinct, and it is full of useful detail and how-to tips. It appears very well suited for consideration as a text for therapists in training and for others who want an up-to-date statement of the person-centred therapy approach." --British Journal of Guidance and Counselling

Praise for the First Edition: `An excellently edited book... It touches upon the core philosophical bases of psychodynamic/psychoanalytic, cognitive and humanistic counselling, and explores the complicated and sometimes contradictory nature of contracting within these approaches... The book is written in an accessible language and often uses very powerful imagery to underline its message... I found this book to be extremely stimulating, accessible and readable. I recommend it to all people interested in counselling, and particularly to students of counselling at all levels' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling Contracts in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Second Edition is a practical guide to an essential area of professional knowledge and skills.

This book provides a unique guide to the nature of counselling contracts, why they are needed and how they are made.

'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.
