It makes clear, reassuring and essential reading for therapists in training as well as those in practice. [All] counsellors and psychotherapisys need to be up to speed with the law and with how it relates to their work. This book is more than timely with the impending introduction of regulation, and the fact that increasingly the work of counsellors and psychotherapists is being subjected to legal scrutiny' - Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal Counselling, Psychotherapy and the Law is the long-awaited Second Edition of Peter Jenkins' comprehensive introduction to legal issues in relation to counselling and psychotherapy in the UK.

These are identified and explored, ranging from the use of narrative theory, to the provision of pre-trial therapy for abused children, to the role of the therapist as expert witness. This new edition provides clarity and reassurance for practitioners at all levels about the exact nature of their responsibilities, and how these can best be managed, in order to enable them to comply with the law and focus on their therapeutic work with clients.

Trainers, supervisors and agency coordinators especially would benefit from the up to date material contained here' - Therapy Today `Peter Jenkins has consulted widely over the content of this book, both within the psychological therapies field and with legal eagles.

`Well written, well researched... [the book] contributes to undermining ideas of professional hierarchy, in which long-term face-to-face is top of the pile, and short-term and the phone are the province of the amateur who knows not what they are up to. On the contrary, the counselling process as well as the use of counselling skills are resources that can be much more widely used than is possible if they are restricted to relatively long-term counselling. This is an excellent book covering a great deal of recent thinking about confidentiality, skills, training, quality and supervision in relation to the telephone [with] a useful chapter on its technology in relation to counselling' - Counselling and Psychotherapy, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy This book explores the essential skills needed to carry out effective telephone counselling - such as welcoming and establishing a relationship with clients; listening and responding; understanding silences; working with transference and fantasy; and recognizing and reacting to feelings - which are necessarily very often distinct from those involved in face-to-face counselling. Maxine Rosenfield challenges the view that telephone counselling is a poor relation to face-to-face counselling, arguing that for certain clients it may be the therapeutic medium of choice. She examines the benefits to both clients and counsellors of working by telephone, and highlights the technical and practical issues of which counsellors should be aware. She also covers the relatively new concepts of group counselling by telephone and counselling by other media, such as e-mail or letter.

`I enjoyed the read, learned a lot and thought that it is an excellent resource for counsellors and trainers who wish to review their practice. [It] should be required reading on all counselling training courses' - Disability & Society Anti-discriminatory Counselling Practice is a ground-breaking text and an enlightening introduction to the complex issues which affect all trainees and practitioners in counselling, psychotherapy and other helping professions. The book identifies the origins of discrimination, oppression and disadvantage and shows how they impinge on therapeutic relationships. Drawing together contributions from leading writers, the book shows how oppression is created not only by overt prejudice, but also by deeply ingrained social, political and cultural processes which involve us all, but of which we are often unaware. These processes cause individuals to become disadvantaged merely on the basis of their gender, race, culture, age, sexuality or ability. Examining these areas of discrimination, the contributors highlight the issues which feature frequently in therapeutic encounters and the need for counsellors to develop their skills as culturally sensitive, reflective practitioners. Anti-discriminatory Counselling Practice is a groundbreaking text and an enlightening introduction to complex issues, which affect all trainees and practitioners in counselling, psychotherapy and other helping professions.

He also discusses some of the different contexts in which this work operates... Many of the questions and issues he poses

Anti-Discriminatory Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy is a groundbreaking text which identifies the ease with which individuals can be disadvantaged merely on the basis of their gender, race, culture, age, sexuality or ability. Examining these and other areas of discrimination, leading experts highlight how vital it is for counsellors, psychotherapists - and others in the helping professions - to be aware of and engage with their own social, political and cultural attitudes, and how they must develop their skills as culturally sensitive, reflective practitioners if counselling is to be truly accessible to all members of society. This substantially revised and updated second edition now also includes chapters on working within an anti-discriminatory approach with: - refugees - people with mental health difficulties - people with disfigurement or visible differences. While each thought-provoking chapter now: - links theory to practice by providing case studies and extracts from therapeutic dialogues - assesses the most recent research findings - provides exercises for enhancing awareness and skills within each different domain or care setting - presents references for further recommended reading. Clearly written and accessible, Anti-discriminatory Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy is an indispensable addition to the toolkit of everyone either training to be or practising in the counselling and psychotherapeutic professions.
