Theory and Practice of Counselling and Therapy
- Head Work
The fifth edition of Richard Nelson-Jones' Theory and Practice of Counselling and Therapy provides an essential introduction to the major theoretical approaches in counselling and psychotherapy today. This comprehensive and accessible book has been substantially revised and updated, and now includes two brand new chapters on solution-focused therapy and narrative therapy by Alasdair Macdonald and Martin Payne.
Following a clearly-defined structure, each chapter describes the origin of the therapeutic approach, a biography of its originator, its theory and practice, discusses case material and further developments, and suggests further reading. Each chapter also contains review and personal questions. Richard Nelson-Jones' authoritative and practical textbook is the ideal companion for students on introductory courses and those embarking on professional training.
