The Psychodynamic Approach to Therapeutic Change

`It is well written and well organised and I'm sure it will be of help and interest to researchers and practitioners concerned with the therapeutic action of psychodynamic treatment' - Penelope Waite, Nurturing Potential Change is the central purpose of all counselling and psychotherapy, but how it is conceptualized and worked with varies according to the theoretical approach being used. The Psychodynamic Approach to Therapeutic Change explores the nature of psychological change from the psychodynamic perspective and describes the process through which clients can be helped to come to terms with painful experiences and develop new ways of relating. In the first part of the book, Rob Leiper and Michael Maltby look at therapeutic change in relation to psychological health and maturity. They explore what motivates people to change and also why resistance occurs. The main part of the book outlines the collaborative process that clients and therapist work through to bring about change and highlights the role of the therapist in: ] creating the conditions for clients to express their thoughts, feelings and memories ] developing clients' awareness and understanding of their psychological processes, and ] providing `containment' for the client's psychological projections. The final part of the book sets personal therapeutic change in a wider social context, linking individual change with community and organisational development. Combining core psychodynamic concepts with contemporary thinking, The Psychodynamic Approach to Therapeutic Change provides a lively and up-to-date integration of ideas on the change process which will be of great value to trainees and practicing counsellors and psychotherapists.

Designed for psychotherapists and counsellors in training, An Introduction to the Therapeutic Frame clarifies the concept of the frame - the way of working set out in the first meeting between therapist and client.

Anne Gray, an experienced psychotherapist and teacher, uses lively and extensive case material to show how the frame can both contain feelings and further understanding within the therapeutic relationship. She takes the reader through each stage of therapeutic work, from the first meeting to the final contact, and looks at those aspects of management that beginners often find difficult, such as fee payment, letters and telephone calls, supervision and evaluation. Her practical advice on how to handle these situations will be invaluable to trainees as well as to those involved in their training.

This book deals with what is perhaps the central question in therapy - who is the therapist? And how does that actually come across and manifest itself in the therapeutic relationship? A good deal of the thinking about this in psychoanalysis has come under the heading of countertransference. Much of the thinking in the humanistic approaches has come under such headings as empathy, genuineness, nonpossessive warmth, presence, personhood.

The Stages of Life

Personalities and Patterns in Human Emotional Development

Is personality "in the genes"? Do our infant experiences matter, even though we can’t remember them? Why do patterns repeat within the lives of individuals and families? The Stages of Life provides answers to these and other intriguing questions, and presents a refreshingly readable introduction to human development from birth to death. The book synthesises those theories and research findings that are most helpful in explaining the paradoxes and complexities of human personality and human problems. The book provides a thought-provoking discussion of several important topics, including: how personality evolves in response to both genetic and social influences how individuals differ and what this means for them how some problems tend to develop at particular stages of the life course, from early childhood through to midlife and old age. Throughout the book, Hugh Crago relates both ‘nature’ and ‘nurture’ to the challenges individuals must face from early childhood through to old age. He draws attention to often-ignored clinical findings about ‘cross generational repetition’ in families, and shows how recent developments in epigenetics may supply an explanation for such mysterious phenomena. Written without jargon, and full of new and provocative ideas, the book will be of great interest to students of counselling and psychotherapy, and it is also has much to offer the general reader. With its engaging examples from history, literature and the author’s own life, readers will find that The Stages of Life illuminates puzzles in their own lives and opens a road to self-acceptance.

The Psychoanalytic Craft

How to Develop as a Psychoanalytic Practitioner

Author: Laurence Spurling

Publisher: Macmillan International Higher Education

ISBN: 1137377119

Category: Psychology

Page: 232

View: 5962

Why is developing as a psychoanalytic practitioner so often laden with anxiety? A simple answer is that psychoanalytic work is intrinsically complex and difficult. But Laurence Spurling argues traditional accounts of practice make these difficulties even worse for students and practitioners: he shows that case descriptions and examples in psychoanalytic textbooks often give a misleading picture of practice, because they explore what practitioners ought to do rather than what they actually do. The Psychoanalytic Craft uniquely identifies and explores what is missing in these accounts of therapy, namely the 'craft' aspects of skilled psychoanalytic work: how theories and models are actually used in practice, what kind of reasoning is employed in conducting a session, how interventions are composed and evaluated. The book draws on recent research, as well as the wider craft literature to show how these features of clinical thinking, which normally operate below the level of awareness, can be identified and explored in clinical practice, in supervision and in teaching. This book has been written specifically for those students and practitioners moving beyond beginner level towards skilled and resourceful practice.

Treating Attachment Disorders

From Theory to Therapy

Author: Karl Heinz Brisch

Publisher: Guilford Press

ISBN: 9781572306813

Category: Psychology

Attachment theory and research have greatly enhanced our understanding of the role of parent-child relationships in the development of psychopathology. Yet until now, little has been written on how an attachment perspective can be used to actively inform psychotherapeutic practice. In this invaluable work, Karl Heinz Brisch presents an attachment-oriented framework for assessing and treating patients of all ages. Illuminated are the ways that early experiences of separation and loss can lead to a range of psychological, behavioral, and psychosomatic problems, and how these can be addressed in the context of a healing therapeutic relationship. Bridging a longstanding divide between the seminal work of John Bowlby and the concepts and methods of psychodynamic therapy, the book is richly illustrated with evocative clinical material.

SAGE celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Counselling in Action series in November 2008. To view the video - click here ---------------------------------------------------------- REVIEWS `Thank you for revising the bible! I am a tutor on a so-called "integrative counselling course" and I thoroughly endorse the idea that Carl Rogers would have welcomed this honesty and new interpretatation of his model. Your SAGE book is indeed a bible and I have repeatedly recommended it to the students' - lecturer, YouTube `For students and those new to person-centred counselling, there is a clear exposition of person-centred theory. For experienced practitioners, there are new and challenging theoretical developments within the person-centred approach. If new to counselling, this is a 'must have'. If wondering whether to invest in this edition when there is a already a copy of the earlier one on the shelf, the challenge of the new theoretical material is persuasive, but if that is not enough, then the updated practice guidance, the practical questions and answers, and the comprehensive references must make this new edition another bestseller' - Therapy Today ---------------------------------------------------------- It is now almost twenty years since the first edition of Person-Centred Counselling in Action appeared. In that time this SAGE bestseller has maintained enormous popularity with trainees and practitioners and has achieved world-wide acclaim. This substantially revised Third Edition provides an excellent introduction to the theory and practice of person-centred counselling while incorporating exciting new developments in the approach. Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne have preserved the compelling and accessible style of its predecessors. At the same time they provoke reflection on many of the key issues which concern not only person-centred practitioners but those across the whole counselling and psychotherapy field. New to this edition is: - the inclusion of "relational depth", a key development for the person-centred approach and counselling generally - extended discussion of the counsellor's use of self - a new chapter containing the authors' answers to frequently-asked-questions - the inclusion of diversity issues covering religion, gender and sexual orientation - further reading suggestions. Much has changed in the person-centred orientation since the death of Carl Rogers in 1987. Not only have new schools of thought emerged with different emphases and therapeutic possibilities but the authors of this book have themselves been responsible for significant advances in key areas of person-centred theory and practice. These developments are fully reflected in the revised text. Continuing to offer a clear exposition of the theory and practice of the approach, Person-Centred Counselling in Action, Third Edition will be invaluable for those embarking on their first stages of training. Well-established practitioners and even seasoned scholars will continue to find much to interest and stimulate them. Praise for previous editions: `An important book... a most sophisticated text. Mearns and Thorne have written a book for all counsellors and psychotherapists. The reader will be left both grateful and hungry for more' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling `The discussion of empathy, acceptance and congruence is central and should be required reading for all trainees working to understand the richness of these core concepts... outstanding' - Counselling and Psychotherapy, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy `Without doubt the clearest description of the person-centred approach to counselling that I have read, apart from Carl Rogers' own writings. I felt that I had got to know both Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne through their offering the reader their own congruence and I found this aspect of the book at times quite moving' - Social Work Today `Gives real insight into person-centred counselling... This is a gentle book; an absolute delight to read (I couldn't put it down) as it held me in the realm of my own feelings. I would like to thank both authors for sharing so much of their intimate selves. I recommend this book to trainee counsellors, trained counsellors, clients and those involved in the helping professions. It is a book that has influenced me and that I would not want to be without' - BPS Counselling Psychology Review `Excellent "all rounder" for practitioners to learn and build upon counselling skills with young offenders' - lecturer, Guidance, Youth and Youth Justice, Nottingham Trent University `An excellent text. Student friendly and covering all main issues' - lecturer, Psychology Swansea Institute of HE `Stimulates a re-exploration of the doctor-patient relationship' - British Medical Journal `I felt understood by this book!' - Ann Weiser, PCA Letter Network `This book could very sensibly be placed on the reading lists of all counselling trainers and trainees.... this is the most informative and useful book I have read in a long time and I have no doubt that if Carl Rogers were still alive today, he would not only agree but also acknowledge experiencing some envy' - Changes `The skilful conveying of tenderness and building of trust are well explained and described with lots of case study examples' - Guidance Matters `Excellent book - a useful and practical way to underpin current emphasis on humanism in nursing' - lecturer, West London NHS Mental Health Trust `Continues to be an excellent, easy introduction but with depth. Deserves to be a bestseller!' - lecturer, Preston College `The book conveys the profound respect for the person, for his/her autonomy and uniqueness, which is inherent in the Rogerian approach' - British Journal of Medical Psychology `A marvelous book; highly recommended. Someone has finally written an easily accessible book about the theory and practice - mostly practice - of the kind of therapy that makes the most sense to many focusers. Hurrah!' - The Focusing Connection `Truly allows the reader to enter the world of the person-centered counsellor' - Contemporary Psychology `Person Centred Counselling in Action, written by Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne was originally published in 1988 about a year after the death of Carl Rogers. It has helped to maintain and stimulate interest in this approach and has become a best-seller in the Counselling in Action series' - The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy

This thorough revision of the highly successful first edition of Life-Span Development offers the reader a wide-ranging and thought provoking account of human development throughout the lifespan. The lifespan approach emphasises that development does not stop when we cease to be adolescents but goes on throughout adulthood and into old age. In initial chapters Leonie Sugarman outlines the issues surrounding the notion of development and how it can be studied, including reviews of the work of key theorists Erikson, Levinson and Gould. She goes on to consider the different ways in which the life course can be construed: as a series of age-related stages; as a cumulative sequence; as a series of developmental tasks; as a series of key life events and transitions or as a narrative construction which creates a sense of dynamic continuity. A final chapter looks at how people cope, the resources that are available and the theoretical and practical issues regarding interventions to assist them in the process. New to this edition is increased coverage of the topical issue of successful ageing and a new chapter on the increasingly popular narrative approach to lifespan development. This edition is also more student-friendly with exercises in self-reflection that encourage the reader to look at the development of their own lives or those of their current or future clients. Boxed material highlighting major theories and clarifying concepts is also included. This book will be invaluable for students of developmental and occupational psychology and professionals in the fields of health management, education and social work.

View: 4378

An essential feature of successful counselling is the ability to listen and respond well to the information being given in an interview. In this book, the author shows how this ability may take away the need for leading and advising, creating a counselling encounter that is constructive and helpful. Leaders, whether clerical or lay, teachers or managers, doctors or social workers, frequently see their role as one of communication, but in the excitement of communicating, forget that theirs are not the only important voices. The primary purpose of this book is to emphasize the necessity of learning to listen as well as to speak, and to respond to what is said and what is omitted.
