Referral and Termination Issues for Counsellors

by Dorothy Anne Leigh

Part of the Professional Skills for Counsellors Series Series

Referral and Termination Issues for Counsellors Synopsis

This book guides trainee and practising counsellors through the practical issues surrounding the referral of clients, a procedure which may be necessary at any time during the counselling process. Stressing ethical issues and the need to be aware of limits of competency, Anne Leigh provides straightforward guidelines. The sensitive, ethical handling of termination is also an important part of this book, backed up by clear examples and recognition of the emotional consequences of referral or termination for both counsellor and client. She examines the situations most frequently calling for referral, and the ways in which referral may take place responsibly and satisfactorily. The volume covers whether, how, to whom and when to refer on, as well as how best to receive referrals from outside agencies.

`A clear and comprehensive consideration of the issues and dilemmas involved in the many types of endings that can happen within the counselling relationship... [it] promises to become a key reference text for counsellors... The book is clearly written and easy to digest. Key points are brought to life with relevant case examples and essential information is easily accessed... I found it useful to read through a dedicated text like this, to review my understanding of the issues and potential pitfalls in referrals and endings and to consider my own pratice' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling `This is an excellent reference book, presented in well organized sections about every aspect of contracts, referrals and endings in counselling.

I recommend it' - Counselling at Work
