Counselling Couples and Families: A Person-Centred Approach

by Charles O'Leary - £28.99  Sage Publications (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780761957911 | ISBN 10: 076195791x

In this unique and highly readable text the theory and practice of counselling couples and families are integrated with principles from the person-centred approach.
Written primarily from the viewpoint of working with couples and families, issues specific to relational counselling are identified in contrast to those that arise when counselling individuals or non-related groups. The process of relational counselling is then explored using the person-centred principles of empathy, congruence, unconditional positive regard and non-interference with the clients' actualizing tendency.
With frequent references to the experiences of both clients and practitioners, and numerous examples from actual sessions with families and couples, the book clearly illustrates the key issues that couples and families face, and the ways in which the counsellor can help them to resolve these to their own satisfaction.
Counselling Couples and Families will be invaluable to beginning counsellors as well as to established practitioners wishing to develop their skills as a relational counsellor, whether or not they have experience in either person-centred or couple and family counselling.
