Description

This accessible text aims to prepare students for beginning mental health practice by helping to develop an overall appreciation of counselling and psychotherapy. It discusses the basic skills needed to work effectively with clients and provides practical skill-building exercises throughout the book. These exercises are designed to help students master four types of skills: personal and professional development skills (including cultural sensitivity); communication skills; skills associated with the client's thoughts (cognitive skills); and skills associated with the client's emotions (affective skills).
