Handbook of Counselling in Britain by Windy Dryden
Counselling has developed widely in Britain over the past twenty years. More and more people are being employed as counsellors, while others, not employed specifically as counsellors, make use of counselling skills in the course of their work and their day-to-day activities. This handbook, the first comprehensive and up-to-date review of the main fields of counselling activity in Britain, will be an invaluable source of information for professional counsellors, for students of counselling and other helping professions, and for voluntary organizations. The contributors, all experienced practitioners, present a clear picture of the theory and practice underlying the mainstream world of counselling in Britain today. Their contributions reflect the diversity and also the coherence of counselling and cover the major arenas and settings in which counselling is practised as well as the key themes and issues faced by those working in the field.
