This third edition of a seminal text reflects new developments in counselling psychology. In seven sections, it covers areas such as neuroscience, narrative approaches and post-modernist thinking.
New chapters cover:
the nature of evidence
interpreting case material
attachment theory and neuroscience
the interface between psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic approaches.
Special attention has been paid to the research evidence, current debates, professional and ethical issues, theoretical and philosophical underpinnings, and illustrative case material.
The Handbook is an essential companion for students and practitioners in the field of counselling psychology, at all stages of their career and across the whole range of settings: NHS, education, private and voluntary.
