Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book lives up to its billing. It adds to the literature on CBT and

careers counselling and will benefit practitioners in both fields' -

Windy Dryden, Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies and Programme Co-ordinator of the MSc in Rational-Emotive and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Goldsmiths, University of London 

'As first a careers practitioner, then educator/trainer of careers counsellors for over 25 years, I was constantly searching for books that provided high quality, interesting and (above all) practical exercises that I could implement in my practice. These were always hard to come by - especially for the specialist subject area of careers. This book provides these and a lot more. In addition to the numerous exercises that are both easy to understand and would be easy to implement, this book (importantly) places them within a credible and coherent theoretical framework. This alone, would be sufficient to make it worthy of recommendation, but in addition, it provides case study scenarios that illustrate how, when and why these exercises could be useful. CBT represents a new and innovative approach for career practitioners. The authors provide compelling arguments for the value of integrating this approach within career practice, with chapters focusing specifically on clients with different needs across a range of career-related contexts. Particular strengths of the book, in my view, are the final three chapters on reflective practice, ethical issues and self-care. Under constant and increasing pressure to delivery high quality services, practitioners can often neglect their own professional and personal needs. These chapters provide a timely reminder of these essential components of effective and efficient professional career practice. Overall, the authors are to be congratulated on having produced a book that successfully combines theory, practice and research, in parallel with introducing an innovative, evidence-based approach that has considerable potential to enhance the quality of services' -
