Integrative Counselling Skills in Action

Sue Culley

$59.99

Paperback
With vitality and enthusiasm, Miller uses examples and case studies to vividly demonstrate the quality of interactions between client and counselor. She focuses on the fundamental skills and strategies required by any counselor working with a client. The integrative model she describes enables counselors to evaluate where they are now and to discern what needs to happen, if the counseling sessions are to proceed to the desired conclusion. Written in a clear and accessible style, the integrative model provides guidance about not only what to do at each stage but also the appropriate sequence for implementation. Integrative Counselling Skills in Action assists counselors in the development of an eclectic framework for their practice by offering a wide range of approaches and techniques to use when implementing whichever counseling theories are practiced. "Introduces an integrative skills model which is really practical and will be helpful to many engaged in counselling at work. The skills and techniques are accompanied throughout by excellent case material." --Insight "Contains a number of little clinical cameos and snatches of dialogue which would be of considerable interest to readers." --Clinical Psychology Forum FOR SERIES "This series is proving invaluable to those looking for straightforward, non-mystifying texts that deal in clear, structured ways with some of the many forms of counselling and psychotherapy now on offer." --Self and Society "A worthwhile book, clear, concise, almost a 'How to do it' book." --Self and Society "The book is short, readable, well written, well organized and very clear. The helping process is well described in a practical and useful way.

- Publisher This excellent book describes a three-stage model of counselling compatible with similar models.. but using simple, everyday language which allows the ideas and structures suggested to be readily accessible to many people... A valuable addition to the existing books on counselling skills, the greatest value of this book will be to new students of counselling, helping them to identify and practice the skills they are learning.

- Publisher 'Sue Culley does a good job in providing a rationale for an approach in counselling that goes beyond the merely eclectic and shows how the skills she describes can be organized into what she calls a 'consistent and meaningful whole'. There are meticulous descriptions of the microskills of counselling, examples of the strategies that can be used when faced with particular issues within counselling relationships and discussion of the aims and goals of the counselling process... a very worthy and thorough book about counselling as an understandable and rational application of specific skills and the counselling process as a generally predictable sequence of events or stages... A worthwhile book, clear, concise, almost a 'How to do it' book (which will) appeal to those undertaking skills training or looking for a straightforward non-jargon approach' - Self & Society 'really practical and will be helpful to many engaged in counselling at work.
