Six Key Approaches to Counselling and Therapy (Paperback)Richard Nelson-Jones (author)
- We can order this
- 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.
