Skills in Gestalt Counselling & Psychotherapy
Skills in Gestalt Counselling & Psychotherapy, Second Edition is a practical introduction to the application of the Gestalt approach at each stage of the therapeutic process. Taking the reader through these stages, the book focuses on skills which arise out of Gestalt theory as well as those invoked by the therapeutic relationship.
As well as offering guidance on practice issues affecting counsellors such as assessment and treatment considerations, using a variety of Gestalt techniques, and developing client awareness, this fully updated edition has been expanded to represent new developments in the psychotherapy field. New material includes:
- the implications of neuroscience and psychotherapy outcome research for the therapeutic relationship
- new chapters exploring action research, disturbed and disturbing clients, and Gestalt supervision and coaching
- short-term work in primary care and the NHS.
This is an ideal text for use on counselling and counselling skills courses, especially those training in Gestalt, and recommended reading for anyone who uses Gestalt skills in their work.
