`Excellent... [the book] explores the "provision of effective counselling with limited resources and under strict time pressures"... with some excellent writing on the nature of time and attitudes to time in counselling and psychotherapy... the evidence in favour [of short-term counselling] is put strongly. Colin Feltham favours it as an approach of choice for certain clients, which should coexist with (rather than adversarially seek to oust and replace) longer-term therapy... he draws from a wide range of literature, while identifying those key ingredients, skills and strategies that he has found especially significant. He also discusses some of the different contexts in which this work operates... Many of the questions and issues he poses

'An unusually thoughtful, methodical, engaging text tackling essential research issues in an accessible and attractive way' - Colin Feltham Emeritus Professor of Critical Counselling Studies, Sheffield Hallam University.

This practical book demystifies research through a model of collaborative and experiential learning, with training exercises, student reflections, further reading, guidance on how to complete a thesis or dissertation, study skills and tips on how to use research supervision and dissemination. Terry Hanley, Clare Lennie and William West work as directors and lecturers on the Counselling and Counselling Psychology programmes at the University of Manchester.

`Taking Supervision Forward wins unconditional approval. There is a throughout a coherent, continuing thread of concern, comment and information which makes reading this book either as a whole or in its chapter sections, a creative and satisfying experience' - The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling & Psychotherapy `This is a thought-provoking collection of contributions, some critically examining aspects of supervision that have previously been well established and some identifying controversies in working practice' - Counselling `This book lives up to its claim to be a timely and thought-provoking evaluation of contemporary supervisory practices and structures in counselling and psychotherapy' - John Hopton, Therapeutic Communities This book evaluates supervisory structures and practices in the light of recent research and experiences. It provides counsellors and psychotherapists with a considered examination of the supervision process and draws attention to those aspects of supervision that may benefit from critical analysis and reform. The first part of the book explores some inherent difficulties that may impinge upon the effectiveness of supervision, while the second part identifies debates relating to working practice, and the impact of the cultural environments in which counselling is now taking place. In the final chapter, key figures in counselling and psychotherapy contribute short pieces outlining what they feel will be significant issues for supervisory practice in its next phase of development.

To find out more and to book your place go to www.cityminds.com ________________________________________ `It is a fairly well established clich[ac]e that while supervision is recognised as a crucial component of good practice in psychotherapy and counselling, there is correspondingly little written about it... [this book is] a good step in redressing the balance... It is a practical, didactic and generic view of how to do supervision... giving a fairly comprehensive account of 30 of the formal skills that all supervisors probably use whether consciously or not... The book discusses each of the skills, giving examples as well as practical suggestions as to how to approach difficult issues... directed principally at counsellors, it is a book to dip into when faced with a panic about a specific issue' - Therapeutic Communities Supervision is a professional and ethical necessity for all counsellors, providing them with consultative and supportive aid while protecting clients from potential abuse - yet relatively little has been written on the subject. This volume aims to redress that balance. Encouraging, yet sensitive to the difficult issues that frequently arise in supervision, the book contains practical suggestions, plus useful appendices, to help practising and trainee supervisors develop and enhance the skills they need to be successful in their work. The authors cover such key areas as creating a supervisory alliance, fostering the supervisory relationship, the use of tape-recording, highlighting supervisees' strengths and weaknesses, and protecting the client and counsellor.

This controversial book argues that 20th century psychotherapy has been fundamentally characterized by serious disagreement on views of human nature, treatment rationales and goals. Focusing on the differences rather than the commonalities in therapy, eight eminent practitioners demonstrate the diversities in therapies and why, for the most part, it is not possible to tolerate or integrate with other approaches. Each therapist highlights the distinctive properties of his or her orientation, and discusses questions such as: why and how they came to found, adapt or choose the approach they currently practise; what criticisms of the approach they consider to be valid; which approaches they consider to be ineffective, misleadi
