Handbook of Counselling in Organizations Reviews

`The contributors to this handbook read like a "who's who" in work counselling... what the editors have achieved is a level of analysis and debate around the question "what is different about counselling in organizations" which demands that the issue be taken seriously both by the "counselling establishment" and by organizations which employ or use counsellors.... Whether you are an experienced counsellor grappling with organizational issues, embarking on work counselling training or a manager interested in this area, this is a "must buy" volume' - Counselling at Work

`This is an excellent resource not only for academics and practitioners, for counsellors and managers, but for all those people with a commitment to developing effective organizations. It provides a blueprint for the development of learning organizations capable of renewal and growth like the people within them' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling

`A comprehensive study of what organizations and counsellors are, and what they should be asking themselves about the practice of counselling as it relates to organizational settings.... For managers who are concerned with employee welfare, for personnel or HR departments and perhaps also for some training departments, this handbook will be an extremely valuable reference book... [which] provides a powerful insight into the topic of organizational counselling written by a panel of highly experienced practitioners' - IT Training

`Anyone looking for a round-up of counselling experts' current thinking on workplace counselling would do well to read this book, which draws on a wealth of expertise from 19 academics and practising counsellors. The book's central theme is the interface between the client, the organization and the counsellor employed by the organization.... This handbook is detailed enough and asks sufficiently intelligent questions to be of interest to those with existing knowledge of the field. But it makes no assumptions that the reader will come armed with previous knowledge - its clarity, numerous examples and references make it equally suitable for those who are starting from scratch but who aim to have a thorough understanding of pertinent issues surrounding workplace counselling by the time they finish this book. It is highly accessible while being practical' - Personnel Today

`A welcome addition to the small but developing literature on counselling in the organizational context. A growing number of counsellors and therapists work for commercial, industrial and public organizations as full-time, part-time and associates. EAP schemes are rapidly growing. Therefore an exploration of the interface between therapy client, the therapist/counsellor and the organization is important... the book should be useful for the counsellor in organizations who wants to have questions about his/her role raised' - Journal of the National Association for Psychotherapists

". . . the editors have produced a worthwhile contribution. The volume is full of sound advice and evidence of reflective practice."

-- David Lane
