ISBN 1 85775 727 0
This book has been written specifically to meet the needs of counsellors and trainers/trainees working with and within the National Health Service but is also has application for doctors, nurses and managers within the health care sector. It also has relevance and application for counselling in any workplace setting where the issues addressed in this volume can arise. The book covers topics such as difference and diversity, colour, language barriers, oppressed nurses, stressed managers, changes in the NHS, exhaustion, late cancellations and handling the client's manager who does not understand confidentiality.
Adopting the unique approach of the Living Therapy series, this book uses fictitious dialogues to enable the reader to directly experience the therapeutic process, providing real insight into the experiecne of workplace counselling in the NHS and also in other work setting. Supervision sessions are also included to highlight this aspect of the therapeutic process.
'he Living Therapy series aims “to bring the reader a direct experience of the counseling process, an exposure to the thoughts and feelings of both client and counselor as they encounter each other on the therapeutic journey”: these books do all of this and more.’ (Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal)
'I enjoyed reading this book and hope that you get as much out of it as I did. [The author's] style of writing is succcessful because it speaks of the real experience of counsellors. Although the workplace setting may be unfamiliar to the reader, it is likely that they will recognise the situations and will have had clients who have experienced some of the problems he illustrates. He has a clear, informative and accessible style and his way of presenting material will be of special interest to trainers and trainess because it is rooted in a particular theory and practice, and arises out of his clinical experience. He manages to bring his cases alive in such a way as to enable the reader to be an invisible observer of the counselling process. Using the person-centred approach was useful to me and illuminating for my own practice.'
