Book Short Summary:

Exhaustive work pressures, unmanageable deadlines, and over-stressed work schedules, often lead a manager to a situation, where he/she fails to perform upto his/her potential. At that point of time, counselling becomes mandatory for mental healing and positive outlook. In the second edition, the book continues to focus on counselling concepts by delving on the issues of termination and follow-up, while discussing Counselling Procedures. The concept of REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy) has been examined to help the counsellors improve or enhance the behaviour of clients through counselling. While discussing organizational application of counselling skills, a detailed analysis dealing with clients in crisis and trauma has been deliberated, that has a great relevance in today’s challenging environment. Further, a section has been specifically devoted to ‘Counselling Women’, as they have to encounter different kinds of issues in both personal and professional lives. A comprehensive model of ethical decision-making has been added into the chapter, ‘Ethics in Counselling’. The book is designed for the postgraduate students of management and organizational psychology. Besides, the book will also be useful for the practising managers and counsellors.

Book Short Summary:

This is the second edition of a book that I hope continues to be of practical value. For counselling must always be that: practical. No amount of talking, on its own, can really make a difference if people do not end up doing something as a result of counselling. The practical thread remains an important one throughout this edition. Counselling Skills for Health Professionals is not just a 'how to do it' book: people are probably too complicated for that approach to be of much use. Counselling is never simply a matter of learning a range of skills which you then apply in a range of settings. In the end, counselling is about facing the person in front of you, listening to them carefully and then supporting them as they work through their problems. For many problems, there are no easy answers and counselling doesn't offer any 'quick fixes'. It is essentially a supportive process. There are many things it cannot do. It cannot change certain social and political situations. It cannot cure diseases. On the other hand, what it can do is offer people more hope. Often, just the fact that there is somone who is prepared to hear your story and to listen to you is all that is needed. I remain convinced that the key issue in all types of counselling is the ability to listen.

Book Short Summary:

Counselling Skills for Working with Shame helps professionals to understand and identify shame and to build shame resilience in both the client and themselves. Shame is ubiquitous in counselling where there is an increased vulnerability and risk of exposure to shame. While many clients experience feelings of shame, it is often overlooked in the therapeutic process and as a result can be left untreated. It is particularly pertinent when working with clients who have experienced trauma, domestic or complex abuse, or who struggle with addiction, compulsion and sexual behaviours. Written in an accessible style, this is a hands-on, skills-based guide which helps practitioners to identify what elicits, evokes or triggers shame. It gives a general introduction to the nature of shame in both client and counsellor and how these become entwined in the therapeutic relationship. It focuses on increasing awareness of shame and how to release it in order to build shame resilience. With points for reflection, helpful exercises, top tips, reminders and suggestions for how to work with clients, this is a highly practical guide for counsellors, therapists, mental health practitioners, nurses, social workers, educators, human resources, trainee counsellors and students.

Book Short Summary:

"This book is compact and easy to read, and could make a significant contribution to practitioners' ability to communicate effectively and make their practice patient centred." Journal fo Clinical Nursing "This is a delightful book which is well written, easy to read and suitable for students, qualified nurses and those who are specialist nurses." Journal of Community Nursing Counselling is a diverse activity and there are an increasing number of people who find themselves using counselling skills, not least those in the caring professions. There is a great deal of scope in using counselling skills to promote health in the everyday encounters that nurses have with their patients. The emphasis on care in the community and empowerment of patients through consumer involvement means that nurses are engaged in providing support and help to people to change behaviours. Community nurses often find themselves in situations which require in-depth listening and responding skills: for example, in helping people come to terms with chronic illness, disability and bereavement. Midwives are usually the first port of call for those parents who have experienced miscarriages, bereavements, or are coping with decisions involving the potential for genetic abnormalities. Similarly, health visitors are in a valuable position to provide counselling regarding the immunization and health of the young infant. These practitioners are having to cope not only with new and diverse illnesses, for example HIV and AIDS, but also with such policy initiatives as the National Service Framework for Mental Health and their implications . This book examines contemporary developments in nursing and health care in relation to the fundamental philosophy of counselling, the practicalities of counselling and relevant theoretical underpinnings. Whilst the text is predominantly aimed at nurses, midwives and health visitors, it will also be of interest to those professionals allied to medicine, for example physiotherapists, occupational therapists and dieticians.

Book Short Summary:

Which skills should a complementary therapist develop? How might the skills be used more effectively? What are the ethical issues that a complementary therapist must consider? When and how should a complementary therapist seek help? As the demand for tighter professionalism grows in the complementary healing world, and government regulation increases, a more skilled approach to counselling patients has become priority. Surprisingly, few practitioners over the past thirty years have used more than basic listening skills as part of their clinical work, largely because they were not taught counselling techniques. Most continue to rely instead upon sympathy and intuition to help their patients face emotional problems. Yet advice, however well-meant, could prove dangerous or, at the least, inappropriate. This pioneering book seeks to change this. Counselling skills help prevent making mistakes, they tell therapists what they can and cannot do. In turn, they then guide the patient towards taking more responsibility for their life and to discover their own 'healer within' to speed recovery. In using talking treatment as well as their primary discipline, practitioners may now offer a truly holistic mind-body-spirit dimension to their work. Theoretical consideration of topics such as transference and counter-transference are woven together with case studies, practical tips, personal anecdotes and observations, to make this an accessible and informative book for professionals, graduates and students.

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.

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.

Book Short Summary:

There are three parts of the book which follow. Part One – ‘Different Voices in the Counselling Profession’ emphasises that as counselling evolved, a kaleidoscope of helping initiatives emerged to meet the needs of the human condition. Each given time period had its clashes of prominent theorists and ideologies. In the 1940s, Freud and psychoanalytic theory was perhaps the initial major influence on all other formal systems of counselling. Many other perspectives evolved as an extension of or rebellion against psychoanalytical principles, such as the ego psychologists or neo-Freudians of the 1950s and the convincing ideas of Carl Jung, Alfred Adler, Karen Horney, Erich Fromm, Harry Stack Sullivan, Erick Erikson, and Wilhelm Reich, who felt that interpersonal aspects have a more significant influence on the development of the individual. Existential approach evolved as the third force in counselling as an alternative to psychoanalysis and behavioural approaches, with the person-centered approach developed by Carl Rogers and the gestalt approach of Fritz Perls. Essentially, the 1960s was touted as the decade of person-centered counselling, with the emphasis on feelings, and the importance of relationships, and focus on the congruency between the ideal and the real self. The 1970s was the decade of behaviourism and behavioural counselling, focusing on measurable and observable data to monitor clients growth and change. The 1980s emerged as the decade of cognition and cognitive approaches to counselling, focusing on the client’s ability to change perceptions, attitudes, and thinking regarding the human condition. The 1990s rapidly emerged as what some have termed as the age of dysfunction and the decade of eclecticism. In the 21 stcentury, counselling profession will have to sustain their worth in response to the constraints of managed care. Transpersonal approaches (“the fourth force”) is attempting a synthesis that rethinks both spirituality and the practice of counselling today. The prolific writings of eminent psychologists have been included to describe the above mentioned theoretical models and their innovative counselling techniques. Part Two – ‘The Counselling Process : Developing Eclectic Skills’ which the reader would find more enriching and inclusive that expands and strengthens the four stage model of the counselling process (relationship stage – extended exploration stage – problem resolution stage – termination and follow-up). Here an attempt is being made with the help of examples, cases, and activities to enhance social, emotional, and cognitive skills to maximise human potential. Part Three – ‘Special Areas of Counselling’ makes the book unique and of value to the demanding needs of today’s clients and specific populations with a wide range of problems namely, developmental concerns of children, adolescents, elderly; family dysfunctions; crises intervention, etc. Yet another primary focus of the book is on Assessment Tools for the diverse clientele used by the counsellors and adding to their repertoires are Skill Development Exercises as well; which brings existential meaning to the work of the helping professional. This brings content and consciousness together and provides hope and meaning for the reader.
