The BACP Counselling Reader

Edited by:

Volume: 1

August 1996 | 656 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`The Reader reflects some of the best work published in Counselling, the journal of the British Association for Counselling, over the past 15 years. The choice of articles also gives a historical perspective on the development of counselling in Britain... provides many hours of interesting reading and a wealth of learned experience all in one volume. I can see this book becoming recommended reading for counsellor training programmes' - British Psychological Society Counselling Psychology Review

This comprehensive and stimulating Reader draws together key material which has been published in Counselling, the Journal of the British Association for Counselling, in recent years.

Combining accessible research studies with professional and personal reflections, the Reader draws on a diverse and authoritative range of articles to cover central aspects of counselling including: therapeutic approaches; contexts and practice; social, professional and ethical issues; research; and future trends.

Bringing together information, reflection and experience, Counselling provides direct access to the main theories, practices and issues which have underpinned, and which continue to shape, the development of counselling, and will act as a springboard for debate and an opportunity for reflection on the status and relevance of counselling today.

`A huge undertaking and a great success... There are many good things here, and this book is strongly recommended' - Self & Society

`The development of Counselling... is so well illustrated... an interesting book... its component papers are short and can be read free-standing. It would also be a useful addition to libraries where students of counselling are looking for support or challenge for an argument. And, for members of BAC, it is a reminder of the breadth and complexity of the unfolding task of counsellors and their Association' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling


This is an excellent resource for trainers and will inform teaching across a wide variety of subjects.
