Very useful text and will be incprporated into the Psychological therapies awarde.
an easy to access work for level 5 students and is also useful to level 6 students for exam revision
This book encourages students to look at generic counselling and helping skills. The case studies and practical exercises are used in class
This has proved a useful book so far in relation to case studies and activities for student involvement. Some of the concepts take the students to the next level of intereventions and in that respect have generated much discussion in class in relation to how theory is put into practice (or not in some cases).
The book has been on loan to a number of students who have reported back positively.
A very welcome updated edition of a core text.
Excellent book for level 2 and above. Very easy to read and understand. Would definitely recommend this book to my students.
A really good practical text for counselling and mental health students.
Although considering this text for postgraduate students, I believe it to be a worthy companion at undergraduate level also, and shall be adopting it for first degree students also. It is written in accessible English, has clear case study applications of theory to practice and is clearly referenced so that students may locate topics easily. A great introduction!
