A good understanding of reflective practice is essential for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy, and is a criterion for accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. This book takes students on a step-by-step journey through the history of reflective practice, from its origins with Donald Schon through to ideas of knowledge and power and how the counsellor or psychotherapist deals with issues surrounding the 'self'. A central theme of the book is the concept of self-reflection and what motivates a therapist to do an often difficult and sometimes emotionally complex job.

Almost two decades ago, the psychoanalyst Sussman concluded that the therapist's motivation for practicing was a neglected area. Is this maybe a question best left alone? This book revisits the question. The authors support Sussman's rationale for raising the issue in the first place and wonder if much has changed since he referred to it as a 'neglected' area twenty years ago? This is an inquiry that moves from personal musing to collaborative and systematic inquiry. At the heart of the book lie six separate accounts as told by counsellors and psychotherapists in a reflective writing- and peer support group. Each therapist represent a different modality and all come with very different backgrounds. These accounts are put into context of ongoing literature and viewed with reference to a survey where 238 other therapists provide their perspective on the question. Like in the case of, for instance, Feltham (1999), Rowan & Jacobs (2003) and Val Wosket (1999) 'the therapist's use of self', is a key theme.

Howard provides lucid explanations of core psychodynamic ideas and skills rooted in engaging clinical illustrations. It will be an invaluable companion both during and beyond training" Prof Alessandra Lemma, Trust-wide Head of Psychology and Visiting Professor, Essex University This practical text is the first to systematically address the competencies and techniques identified as central to the delivery of effective psychodynamic practice. It provides a framework for the therapist to develop their skills and apply them to their practice by: - discussing the personal and professional growth which underpins a professional and ethical attitude to the therapist's work - linking specific competencies to the theory base underpinning them - describing competencies in a systematic way - including a chapter on how to use supervision - using case material to illustrate competencies and dilemmas. Addressing not only how to implement skills, but why they are being implemented, this book is a must-read for all trainees on psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy courses. It is also useful reading for trained practitioners who want an accessible introduction to psychodynamic skills in practice.
