Handbook of Counselling Psychology by Ray Woolfe

`This book, without question, must be read by students and practitioners, alike. It is readable, insightful, authoritative, it accurately reflects the development and current status of the profession and is a much welcomed resource' - British Psychological Society Counselling Psychology Review

`The authors successfully integrate psychological knowledge of life-span development, counselling practice, the helping relationship, the enhancement of psychological well-being and the insights of scientist practitioners in order to clarify the distinctive contribution which counselling psychologists have to offer to the field of counselling and psychotherapy. It is an essential resource for practitioners' - Helen Cowie, University of Surrey Roehampton Institute

The first account of its kind, this major handbook provides definitive and comprehensive coverage of contemporary counselling psychology. The authors include many of Britain's leading counselling psychologists who provide a thorough, detailed and authoritative examination of all the key areas and concerns in the field: theories and practices; methodology; contexts of practice; psychological interventions; and social, professional and ethical issues.

Particular emphasis is placed on research and its implications for practice, and careful thought is given to the problems associated with gender, race, disability, social class and sexual orientation faced by today's helping professionals.
