Synopsis

The Needs of Counsellors and Psychotherapists Emotional, Social, Physical, Professional by Ian Horton

`This book covers a significant gap in the relatively spare literature on the person of the counsellor... the chapters... are written in an easy and accessible style' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling `This book... covers a wide range of topics, including complex matters such as social, cultural, intellectual and personal needs.... It is an interesting trot round some very important topics' - Self & Society In this powerful book, leading counsellors and psychotherapists discuss the emotional, physical, social and professional needs of people who work, or would like to work, in a therapeutic setting, and examine how those needs can be best fulfilled within the rapidly changing context of counselling and psychotherapy today. Drawing on their own experience, views, research and clinical practice, contributors cover topics such as the politics and issues of training, self-development, evaluation, social responsibility and competence.
