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.
