If you are writing an essay on hope in psychotherapy, or counselling, or coaching, this is the main book you will need! It really is thorough and academically respectable, covering all bases in an admirable way. There is plenty of research, some of it conducted by the author himself....There is a good deal of personal material in this book, and I found it eminently readable. I would recommend it quite strongly.
'In a period where short-term, deterministic approaches to mental health seem favoured, O'Hara's Hope In Counselling represents an important, major contribution to the literature of several professions. Presenting an account both rich and broad, the author provides a summary and overview of 'hope' from philosophical, nursing, psychotherapeutic and research perspectives.
This is an interesting and well-informed book that, in addition to the wealth of research presented, offers questions and points for reflection at the end of each chapter. The references cited provide a rich source of research literature on the topic of hope and its place within therapy. It is written in a clear, comprehensive style with many examples to draw on and I highly recommend it to anyone in the helping professions, practitioners and students alike.
Hope is an essential ingredient in the therapeutic relationship and it is important for students to understand the concept and how to engage with this in therapy session.
A excellent introduction to an important topic in therapy. Students enjoyed the wide range of topics within this books and the ease of reference. Recommended for our BSc in counseling psychology students
