Additional Book Details

This updated and revised new edition of Six Key Approaches to Counselling and Therapy provides an accessible introduction to the theory and practice of six of the most popular contemporary therapeutic approaches from the three main schools of therapy practice:

- cognitive therapy and solution-focused therapy from the cognitive-behavioural school

- person-centred and Gestalt therapy from the humanistic school

- Freud′s psychoanalysis and Jung′s analytical therapy from the psychodynamic school.

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. Richard Nelson-Jones goes on to review and evaluate all the approaches in his concluding chapter.

This excellent textbook is a vital resource for students on introductory courses and those who are starting out on professional training.
