Essential Research Findings in Counselling and Psychotherapy answers the above questions and more, and aims to provide trainees, practitioners and researchers within counselling and psychotherapy with a comprehensive, accessible and user-friendly introduction to research findings in the field. It introduces the background behind the challenge of research and offers a concluding discussion based around the concept that the research findings can in fact be friendly.
Therapy research is rarely communicated in a clear and concise way, and this book aims to give a jargon-free overview of research findings to trainers and practitioners at all levels. It provides information on how to practise counselling and psychotherapy in an effective way, and also offers throughout, definitions of key terms, questions for reflection, notes regarding implications for practice, and suggestions for recommended reading, making it an ideal text for training purposes.
The book aims to interest a wide readership, including those in related fields - such as policy developers, service managers, social workers and general practitioners. It will inform about the impact of counselling and psychotherapy, and the particular ways of working that may be most effective within specific contexts or with specific client groups.
The book should also prove to be a valuable resource to users and potential users of counselling and psychotherapy services, offering information which will aid in finding the most appropriate therapist, and will help the reader to make the most of counselling and psychotherapeutic services.
