Recent evidence has shown that the successful setting of goals brings about positive outcomes in psychological therapy. Goals help to focus and direct clients' and therapists' attention in therapeutic work. They also engender hope and help energise clients. No longer are clients victims of their circumstances, but through goal setting they become people who have the potential to act towards and achieve their desired futures. Through the discussing and setting of goals, clients develop a deeper insight into what it is that they really want in life: a crucial first step towards being able to get there. Recent policies in both child and adult mental health services have supported the use of goals in therapy. However, the differing cultures, histories, psychologies, and philosophical assumptions of each form of therapy has brought about varying attitudes and approaches to goal setting. Working with Goals in Counselling and Psychotherapy brings the attitudes of all the major therapeutic orientations together in one volume. With examples from cognitive behaviour therapy, psychodynamic therapy, humanistic therapy, interpersonal therapy, and systemic therapy Working with Goals in Counselling and Psychotherapy truly is the definitive guide for therapists seeking to work with goals in any of the psychological therapies.

As a therapist, have you ever experienced moments of absolute trust, understanding and empathy with a client? Such moments of relational depth can feel like a therapeutic breakthrough for the therapist. But what is the client's experience? And what does the research tell us about the potential therapeutic benefits? This wide-ranging book offers a fascinating survey of the latest thinking and research on in-depth therapeutic encounters. Combining vivid case studies with the latest research evidence, this book: • Examines a breadth of perspectives: from working with young clients to working in groups • Explores relational depth in a wider theoretical context: for example, in relation to dialogue, presence, mutuality and the transpersonal. • Considers important professional issues, such as how relational depth can be assessed and its value in personal development and supervision contexts. By exploring the meaning, challenges and experiences of relational depth, it provides insight into an important dimension of therapeutic practice and, for many, will act as a guide to new ways of thinking about their therapeutic relationships. This book is an essential read for all trainees and practitioners in Counselling and Psychotherapy who want to deepen their levels of therapeutic relating.

Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy

Mick Cooper and John McLeod pioneer a major new framework for counselling theory, practice and research - the 'pluralistic' approach. This model breaks away from the orientation-specific way in which counselling has traditionally been taught, reflecting and responding to shifts in counselling and psychotherapy training. As accessible and engaging as ever, Cooper and McLeod argue that there is no one right way of doing therapy and that different clients need different things at different times. By identifying and demonstrating the application of a range of therapeutic methods, the book outlines a flexible framework for practice within which appropriate methods can be selected depending on the client's individual needs and the therapist's knowledge and experience. This is a must-read for anybody training or practising in the counselling or helping professions - it should not be missed!

Wie wirkt sich die Anwendung des nicht-direktiven, personenzentrierten Ansatzes auf uns Menschen aus? Welchen Einfluss haben die Elemente dieses Selbstkonzepts auf unser Miteinander, sowohl in der Therapie als auch in der Dynamik von Gruppen? Mit persönlichen Gedanken, Erfahrungen und Fallvignetten bringt Carl Rogers seine angestrebte lebensbejahende Daseinsform zum Ausdruck: Der Mitbegründer der Humanistischen Psychologie zeigt, was ein ausgeprägter Gemeinschaftssinn, aufgeschlossene zwischenmenschliche Kommunikation und Authentizität systemverändernd für Erziehung, Politik und unser Zusammenleben bedeuten. Den hier versammelten Aufsätzen liegt eine bestimmte Auffassung von der menschlichen Natur zugrunde: Es ist die Überzeugung, dass der menschliche Organismus, das einzelne Mitglied der Spezies Mensch, in seinen Tendenzen im Kern konstruktiv ist. In einem wachstums- und entwicklungsfördernden psychologischen Klima können diese Potentiale freigesetzt werden.

Die nicht-direktive Beratung

Author: Carl R. Rogers

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9783596421763

Category: Nichtdirektive Psychotherapie

Page: 359

View: 9683

Dieses Buch ist nach den Worten des Verfassers Ausdruck seiner Überzeugung, daß die Beratung ein erlernbarer, überschaubarer und verstehbarer Prozeß ist, ein Prozeß, der vermittelt, überprüft, verfeinert und verbessert werden kann. Es soll angehende wie erfahrene Berater und Therapeuten zu weiterer Erforschung von Theorie und Praxis anregen. Rogers ist überzeugt, daß wir eher zu wenig als zuviel Vertrauen in die Wachstumsmöglichkeiten des Individuums haben, und er möchte mit seinem Buch dazu beitragen, die im Individuum beschlossenen Wachstums- und Entwicklungspotentiale zu erkunden und zu fördern. Das Buch ist" im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes ein praktisches Buch, geschrieben von einem Mann, der über langjährige und erfolgreiche Erfahrung als Berater und Psychotherapeut verfügt."Leonard Carmichael in seinem Vorwort.
