Six Key Approaches to Counselling and Therapy

Author(s): Richard Nelson-Jones

Psychology / Self Help

This is an authoritative and accessible textbook for use on introductory courses in the theory and practice of counselling and therapy. It presents two approaches from each of the three main schools of contemporary therapy practice:

  • the psychodynamic school- Freud's psychoanalysis and Jung's analytical therapy
  • the humanistic school - person-centred and Gestalt therapy;
  • and
    the cognitive-behavioural school - rational-emotive behaviour therapy and cognitive therapy

In addition, the book discusses the structure and functions of theories, reviews issues in evaluating therapeutic approaches, and contains a glossary.
