Anti-Discriminatory Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy is a groundbreaking text which identifies the ease with which individuals can be disadvantaged merely on the basis of their gender, race, culture, age, sexuality or ability. Examining these and other areas of discrimination, leading experts highlight how vital it is for counsellors, psychotherapists - and others in the helping professions - to be aware of and engage with their own social, political and cultural attitudes, and how they must develop their skills as culturally sensitive, reflective practitioners if counselling is to be truly accessible to all members of society. This substantially revised and updated second edition now also includes chapters on working within an anti-discriminatory approach with: - refugees - people with mental health difficulties - people with disfigurement or visible differences. While each thought-provoking chapter now: - links theory to practice by providing case studies and extracts from therapeutic dialogues - assesses the most recent research findings - provides exercises for enhancing awareness and skills within each different domain or care setting - presents references for further recommended reading. Clearly written and accessible, Anti-discriminatory Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy is an indispensable addition to the toolkit of everyone either training to be or practising in the counselling and psychotherapeutic professions.

Praise for the First Edition: `An excellently edited book... It touches upon the core philosophical bases of psychodynamic/psychoanalytic, cognitive and humanistic counselling, and explores the complicated and sometimes contradictory nature of contracting within these approaches... The book is written in an accessible language and often uses very powerful imagery to underline its message... I found this book to be extremely stimulating, accessible and readable. I recommend it to all people interested in counselling, and particularly to students of counselling at all levels' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling Contracts in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Second Edition is a practical guide to an essential area of professional knowledge and skills. Any kind of therapeutic relationship requires an agreement between practitioner and client at the outset. When contracting with clients, practitioners need to consider a whole range of factors including: " goals of counselling " theoretical orientation " brief or open-ended counselling " different personality types " ethical and legal issues. This book provides a unique guide to the nature of counselling contracts, why they are needed and how they are made. For the second edition, the book has been thoroughly updated to take account of the BACP ethical framework. Two new chapters have been added covering the legal aspects of contracting, and how to make contracts with trainees. Contracts in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Second Edition is an authoritative source of information and practical guidance for trainees and practitioners in counselling and psychotherapy.

`Essential reading for student, fledgling and experienced counsellors alike' - Mark Edwards, Nurturing Potential `Beautifully written and well researched and full of useful structured exercise for therapists and clients, this is a combination of psychology textbook and counselling handbook - theoretical a, yet practical' - Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal Counselling and the Life Course introduces counsellors to the concept of the life course as a multidimensional and multidisciplinary framework for thinking about clients' lives within and beyond the counselling setting. It aims to give counsellors an understanding of human development, and how it impacts practically upon their work with clients. The book engages with the tension between, on the one hand, recognizing age and life stage as important dimensions of difference, and on the other, avoiding the pitfalls of age stereotyping and ageist discrimination. At the same time, Counselling and the Life Course shows how the concept of the life course can be used as a framework for considering the commonalities between different life stages. This provides a focus for counsellors of how to draw on their existing skills and expertise when working with clients of a different age and life stage to those with whom they generally meet. The impact of both counsellor and client age on the counselling relationship is also considered. The book includes an `Activity Trail' of structured exercises in order to encourage reflection on the concepts discussed and their relevance to clients, the readers themselves, and their counselling practice.

Ist die jahrtausendealte Herrschaft des Patriarchats am Ende? Noch nicht, sagt Hanna Rosin, doch die massiven Veränderungen der Berufswelt und des Bildungssystems haben eine Dynamik in Gang gesetzt, die das Verhältnis zwischen den Geschlechtern nachhaltig verändert. So scheinen viele Anforderungen der modernen Dienstleistungsgesellschaft – Flexibilität, soziale Intelligenz, Kommunikationsfähigkeit – eindeutig Frauen in die Hände zu spielen, während Männer oft von den Umwälzungen überfordert sind. Hanna Rosin zeigt – frei von ideologischen Prämissen –, wie sich heute das Leben von Männern und Frauen unterscheidet, wie sehr sich die Art und Weise geändert hat, wie heute gearbeitet, gelernt, zusammengelebt wird. Differenziert und mit vielen konkreten Beispielen gelingt es Rosin, die Chancen und Schattenseiten des »weiblichen Jahrhunderts« in den Blick zu nehmen. "Das Ende der Männer" ist keine feministische Streitschrift, keine Prophezeiung, sondern eine messerscharfe, weitsichtige Diagnose.

Komplexe gruppendynamische Prozesse so einfach und nachvollziehbar darzustellen, dass sich konkrete Handlungsmöglichkeiten ableiten lassen: Dieses Ziel verfolgt Christine Thornton mit ihrem Buch. Coachs finden hier Anregungen für die praktische Arbeit mit Gruppen und Teams. Wesentlich ist dabei, welche Ziele eine Gruppe verfolgt, in welchem Umfeld sie agiert und wie die Mitgliederstruktur beschaffen ist. Je eingehender ein Coach sich mit diesen Faktoren beschäftigt, desto besser kann er seine Interventionen gestalten. Doch auch Führungskräften liefert das Buch Denkanstöße für Veränderungen in Unternehmen. Einer Untersuchung zufolge sind überhaupt nur 30 Prozent aller Veränderungsprozesse erfolgreich. Warum das nicht so bleiben muss und welche Maßnahmen wirklich Erfolg bringen, wird ebenfalls beleuchtet.
