Therapeutic Use of Self: Counselling Practice, Research and Superision


Product Description

Published UK, 2017
Since its publication in 1999, this book has been considered a key text within integrative, humanistic and relational approaches for the training and development of therapists. In this long-awaited 'classic edition' of the book, Val Wosket picks out some threads from the original text and shows how they connect with current developments in the field. The heart of the book comprises an extended case study on the use of self in counselling and feedback from readers has highlighted that the clinical examples from the author's own practice as a therapist are the most engaging aspect of the text and are the glue that holds the theoretical elements of the book together. The book addresses many of the taboos and infrequently discussed aspects of therapy, such as:

+  The value of therapist failure
+  Breaking the rules of counselling
+  Working beyond the accepted boundaries of counselling

Val Wosket has worked as a therapist in the UK for over 25 years.
