Wanting to Talk by Diana Syder
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Written by speech and language therapists, psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists, this book demonstrates the process of counselling and the various counselling approaches that may be used with people who have communication disorders. It presents nine detailed counselling case histories, following each client through a complete block of counselling and demonstrating both what happens within a personal counselling session as well as what happens across a sequence of sessions. In this way the book conveys a sense of the dynamics and process of change. The cases represent a number of different counselling approaches: psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy, personal construct therapy, client-centred counselling, hypnosis, and others, across a range of disorders and client groups. Contributors evaluate the efficacy of their therapy with these clients and attention is paid to methods of recording and describing such interventions. An introductory chapter considers key issues in the provision of counselling for people with communication disorders, and the role of supervision is discussed later in the book. By extending therapists' knowledge of approaches not commonly used in speech and language therapy, it is hoped that the book will stimulate debate about which approaches are most suitable for which clients and will encourage further contributions to the literature on this subject.
