2nd edition. From the cover: The Theory and Practice of Counselling (the eagerly awaited and substantially revised second edition of The Theory and Practice of Counselling Psychology) reviews the major psychological theories which have contributed to counselling practice. Richard Nelson-Jones defines counselling theory and shows how counsellors can adapt and incorporate the theoretical positions outlined in their practice to address specific issues. All the major theoretical positions are thoroughly examined, and the ideas are clearly presented in accessible language. Each of the significant theorists is introduced with a brief biography. This up-to-date edition introduces the Lifeskills theory, which is Richard Nelson-Joness major contribution to counselling practice. Extremely practical for all practising and student counsellors as well as for lecturers, it includes chapter reviews and review questions to help students interact with and master the material.
