Recent evidence has shown that the successful setting of goals brings about positive outcomes in psychological therapy. Goals help to focus and direct clients' and therapists' attention in therapeutic work. They also engender hope and help energise clients. No longer are clients victims of their circumstances, but through goal setting they become people who have the potential to act towards and achieve their desired futures. Through the discussing and setting of goals, clients develop a deeper insight into what it is that they really want in life: a crucial first step towards being able to get there. Recent policies in both child and adult mental health services have supported the use of goals in therapy. However, the differing cultures, histories, psychologies, and philosophical assumptions of each form of therapy has brought about varying attitudes and approaches to goal setting. Working with Goals in Counselling and Psychotherapy brings the attitudes of all the major therapeutic orientations together in one volume. With examples from cognitive behaviour therapy, psychodynamic therapy, humanistic therapy, interpersonal therapy, and systemic therapy Working with Goals in Counselling and Psychotherapy truly is the definitive guide for therapists seeking to work with goals in any of the psychological therapies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Working with Goals in Psychotherapy and Counselling is a philosophically grounded, research informed, practical text that will make you think differently about the use (and importance) of goals in therapeutic work. No matter what therapeutic approach you are trained in, there is something in this book for you. * Dr Terry Hanley, Programme Director of the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, University of Manchester, UK *
In this excellent book the contributors highlight how goals can be used in therapeutic practice and from a range of different therapeutic orientations too. The co-editors, Mick Cooper and Duncan Law are to be congratulated for bringing together a theoretical and practical tour de force covering the critical aspects of working with goals in therapy. * Stephen Palmer, Adjunct Professor, Department of Communication and Psychology, Aalborg University, Denmark *
