The Trainee Handbook

Written by a team of leading trainers, practitioners and supervisors, this bestselling book provides all the help and advice you'll need as you start and progress through your training in counselling and psychotherapy. It will also be an essential resource as you go on to take your first steps into therapeutic practice. The book identifies and guides you through the practical skills and knowledge you'll need to make a success of your training - from writing essays, through case formulation, and on to preparing for your first meeting with a client. A further important function of the book is to address and allay the concerns which are common to all students. Now in its third edition, The Trainee Handbook has been fully updated to take account of the significant changes that have taken place in the therapy professions over the last few years. It now also includes new and important chapters on: - the dynamics and practicalities of facilitating client referral, - the processes involved in assessing a client's mental state, and - useful tips and hints from former trainees. The Trainee Handbook will be an invaluable companion, and source of information and guidance for all trainees in counselling, psychotherapy and counselling psychology.
