Stephen Paul and Divine Charura are to be congratulated on producing this almost 'encyclopaedic' work reflecting upon the importance and complexity of the relationship within therapy. Suitable for students and experienced therapists alike, this text is illuminated with 'clips' relating to client and practitioner experiences, theoretical issues and research outcomes.
This book is a gem. It is well written, easy to read and underpinned by a deep scholarship. It clearly draws on its authors’ lengthy experiences of counselling practice, supervision and training. Rightly, they put the therapeutic relationship at the heart of the successful counselling process and clearly show how techniques from differing approaches to therapy can be appropriately used. This is a book that will appeal to both trainees and experienced practitioners of counselling, psychotherapy and related disciplines.
There is something for almost everyone here. There are twenty-five chapters, divided into five sections, which between them cover almost the whole field of psychotherapy.
Highly recommended for first year Trainee Psychologists learning about the therapeutic relationship.
Good source for key concepts in considering relationships.
A clear and well written text book which demonstrates the importance of the therapeutic relationship and is therefore an ideal book for students new to counselling.
A valuable contribution to this important area of training
Really good, thorough overview of different relationship modes.
This is very well written and provides a very thorough and grounded overview of the different modalities in psychotherapy. The scientific background is strong. Provides good insights in the workings of the therapeutic alliance.
