It is suggested that effective interventions will often need to take account of early maladaptive interpretations of situations and of the presence of personality disorders. The specifics of tackling problems as diverse as surviving in a family with a personality disordered member and post-traumatic stress disorder are elaborated, and recent developments in the counselling of clients with anxiety and depression are also incorporated. Hitherto neglected issues such as the use of groups and the assessment of counsellor competence are also highlighted.

This supportive book examines the sources of stress for counsellors and the practical strategies that they can use to overcome it. Stress may emerge in the work that counsellors do with specific client groups, in the contexts in which counselling takes place and in the educational process both for counsellor educators and for counsellors in training. In this book, practising counsellors with first-hand experience of dealing with stress examine the nature of the stresses that counsellors face in these different areas, detail the typical responses (both healthy and unhealthy) that counsellors make and suggest methods for improved coping. An opening chapter sets these personal experiences into context by reviewing the research literature on counsellor stress.

Cognitive-Behavioural Social Work in Practice appears at an interesting time for social work and social services. More than ever, practitioners are required to provide evidence for the effectiveness of what they do, while the rights of service users to ethically competent practice in which they are partners is high on the agenda. Drawing on a wide area of research, as well as the practice experience of its 18 contributors, it covers a broad range of cognitive-behavioural intervention with different client groups in a variety of settings, including child care, family work, probation and offending behaviour, mental health, disability and issues concerning older people. The first chapter sets out lucidly the theoretical and research basis for cognitive-behavioural practice and is rich in case examples. Each subsequent chapter adopts a case study approach to its subject, either by providing a single case study or by the detailed exploration of an area of practice combined with case examples. The volume is unique in not only bringing together practitioners and academics but in presenting the work of the 'academic, reflective practitioner'. It is thus an accessible, informative guide for professionals, students and educators who, with all their working pressures and constraints, strive to provide help based on best evidence.

Traditionally, people with psychotic symptoms have been treated with anti-psychotic or neuroleptic drugs. While this approach is beneficial to a number of people, there are many for whom it is problematic. Recent recognition of these problems has led to the development of effective complementary treatments of a specifically psychological nature. In Cognitive Behavioural Interventions with Psychotic Disorders leading researchers and practitioners in this area provide a comprehensive overview for all those undergoing related training in psychology and psychiatry, as well as nursing and social work. The book provides a general background to cognitive treatment, and also discusses specific uses of the therapy in treating those who have hallucinations, as well as those with delusions and schizophrenia. The contributors also suggest how cognitive behavioural approaches can be integrated with other strategies such as pharmacological methods, or in the context of the family.
