The first book in the UK that addresses coaching psychology as a discipline, The Psychology of Coaching, Mentoring and Learning provides the reader with a thorough understanding of the rationale, theory and practice of coaching and mentoring from a psychological perspective. In this innovative text, the authors introduce a new Universal Integrated Framework (UIF) aimed at unifying the psychology underpinning this diverse and expanding field. This multi-layered framework, based on the self and self-development, is a result of the latest thinking and research in the field. Working through the book, readers can learn how to reflect, become emotionally, socially and culturally aware, give and receive feedback, and self-evaluate. A wide range of tools and exercises are provided to implement the techniques described.

This practical guide demonstrates how individuals and organisations across cultures can easily apply the principles and techniques of coaching and mentoring. It is essential reading for psychologists, coaches, mentors and any senior executives and managers responsible for designing and evaluating effective coaching, mentoring and/or training programmes in their organisations. It is also a valuable resource for students of psychology who are considering a career in coaching, mentoring and training.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Learning is a pivotal theory of the book. Mentoring and coaching can be viewed as a collaborative project for both parts. The narrative approach to mentoring and coaching unfolded by Law can be seen as one of the foundations to create this dialogical space.
Professor Reinhard Stelter, PhD, University of Copenhagen

In a significant and necessary way, The Psychology of Coaching, Mentoring, and Learning adds to the process of professionalising coaching. It brings together a considerable body of psychological theory and research in the area of adult development. This is an excellent reference book for anyone who facilitates the development of others.
Hugh O’Donovan, Programme Director, Masters in Coaching Psychology, School of Applied Psychology, University College, Cork.

I have known Ho for over a decade as co-founders with fourteen peers of Coaching Psychology in the UK. His work is, as ever, a pleasure to read. It is evidence-based and arises out of a deep and ongoing desire to integrate the head and heart in the continuously evolving fields of coaching, mentoring and learning.
Margaret A. Chapman, Chartered & Registered Psychologist, Coach, Mentor, Researcher & Author

Ho Law's book is an invaluable contribution to our emerging profession – relevant, robust, and timely. Equally, this book is easily assessable, as it is written in a clear and concise way, blending in the latest in evidence-based practise, alongside the practical application of coaching, mentoring, and learning…Every page is full of rich insight, which will make you think about your practice, today.
Katherine Tulpa, Global CEO, Association for Coaching
