- We can order this
In Very Brief Cognitive Behavioural Coaching Windy Dryden presents VBCBC: a unique approach to coaching from a cognitive behavioural perspective which takes place over the course of one to three sessions. The approach is designed to help coachees identify at least one major objective, discuss and select ways to achieve it and, if necessary, deal with obstacles that they experience in pursuing it.
The book presents the basic assumptions of the Very Brief Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (VBCBC) approach, how it can be understood from the perspective of working alliance theory and recommendations concerning when it can be used and when not. Dryden begins by defining coaching and explaining the aims of VBCBC, before examining the input factors which can increase its effectiveness and concluding with a seven-stage process view. The book also includes a transcript of a real VBCBC session, with commentary.
Written clearly and accessibly, this will be essential reading for coaches of all backgrounds interested in brief approaches, including those in training, coaching psychologists and coach supervisors.

'A masterly account by a master coach of how to kick-start in 1-3 sessions the change process which clients will then self-manage. A must have book for all coaches who are challenged by their clients or themselves to cut to the chase.' - Michael Neenan, in private practice and author of Developing Resilience: A Cognitive Behavioural Approach (Routledge).
"Dryden is masterful at keeping a tight focus in his sessions, something which a less experienced practitioner such as I can aspire to. (...) it's a great introduction to an innovative approach that may re-energise the way you work." - Sally Brown, integrative counsellor and personal development coach in private practice, and Executive Specialist for Communication for BACP Coaching.
