This classic in the literature for carers, counsellors and therapists is as much for the lay-man as for the trained professional. Using a direct and personal style, Rollo May shows how to approach the complexities of counselling other people to help them resolve their own psychological and moral dilemmas.
The Art of Counselling is an insightful guide for all who work in professions where counselling is a key part of their work: for doctors who often need to counsel the bereaved and discuss intimate subjects with their patients; for lawyers who advise clients in difficult situations; social workers and the clergy whose work is largely spent helping those in distress; senior management staff looking to relate productively with their staff - all will find this book an essential companion. Rollo May's direct and personal approach, combined with the use of pertinent examples, guides the reader to understanding how to adjust his or her own personality to deal constructively and positively with others.
