Cognitive-Behavioural Counselling in Action Summary
This title features seminars by Professor Windy Dryden. See the man live and in action. SAGE celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Counselling in Action in November 2008. 'This is the most explicit and clearest guide to the practice of cognitive-behavioural therapy that I have yet found ...the authors provide a concise, yet detailed, step-by-step introduction ...invaluable to a beginner and useful to many. I found particularly useful and clear their systematic treatment of types of emotional cognitions with appropriate interventions...I shall recommend it without hesitation to my trainee clinical psychologists' - "Behaviour Research and Therapy". This eminently practical guide is designed for trainee and practising counsellors and other professional helpers involved in cognitive-behavioural counselling. The authors trace the steps appropriate at different stages in the counselling process, constantly relating practice to theory. They show how the counsellor can help the client to change, and to learn to take over the whole method of change, in order to cope independently. The step-by-step guide is backed up by easily accessible resource material, particularly on the two most important aspects of cognitive-behavioural counselling: methods of intervention and the setting of homework. Finally, guidance is offered on its application to specific emotional problems: anxiety, depression, anger/aggression, shame and guilt.
