It is often the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist which is more important than the theoretical orientation. This book deals with the uses and abuses of the therapeutic relationship in counselling, psychology, psychotherapy and related fields. It provides a framework for integration, pluralism or deepening singularity with reference to five kinds of therapeutic relationship potentially available in every kind of counselling or psychodynamic work. The original paper and framework upon which this book is based has been widely acclaimed within psychotherapeutic, humanistic and psychoanalytic circles internationally. It has been found useful by adherents of a single orientation, as well as by practitioners who draw from several approaches. In addition, it has formed the basis for several courses in counselling and psychotherapy which have been recognised by national and international accrediting organisations. Dealing with an issue of increasing complexity, the book will be of great value and significance to psychotherapists, psychoanalysts, clinical and counselling psychologists, and other professionals working in the field of helping human relationships such as doctors, social workers, teachers and counsellors. Informed lay people, particularly those who are involved in the helping professions, may also find it of interest and benefit.

This book is unique in that it clearly relates career theories to career counselling, which is often an unclear area for trainees. Divided into two clear parts, the first provides a comprehensive account of theories of career development and career counselling and their implications for practice. Taking a critical approach, it also shows how research informs our understanding of the field. In the second part, career counselling skills, tools and techniques are described, including the use of assessment tools and the internet. The book also covers ethical issues and evaluation. Understanding Career Counselling is invaluable for students undergoing training in career guidance, career counselling, outplacement counselling or career coaching, but it will also be a use to students on occupational psychology and human resource management courses.
