Reader's comments: `Then along comes your book - lands on my desk like a gift, which I have barely put down since. It stopped me searching for external answers, helped me to dig into the knowledge, philosophy and way of working which already existed in me. I draw on it all the time for inspiration and a way of grounding me in the tentative moments of working towards a delicate connection with the families I encounter. I have a lot to be thankful to you for - I have now developed a way of working which seems helpful and which enables those around me to find a way forward, but perhaps most of all I finally feel comfortable and free to be the same counsellor I am with individuals - Hurrah!' - Kim Barber, Counsellor Lecturers' comments: 'A fascinating book which combines couple counselling with person-centred counselling. Will be recommended reading for social work students working with couple relationships' 'Very readible. Useful for students of counselling beyomd the 'title' focus of couples and families' `The only book on couple and family counselling from the person-centred approach' `This book is unique in its articulation of family therapy and the person-centred approach. It is also engaging in the way couples and the families come to life through Charlie O'Leary's acute and sensitive observation. It is an essential text in any person-centred therapy library'- Dave Mearns, University of Strathclyde `Compelling reading... I liked this book. It is intelligent, thought-provoking, occasionally funny and a delight to read. I warmed to the author's passion for the work of Carl Rogers.... All Relate counsellors will find something of value - even the strict psychodynamic practitioners' - Relate News `The author deserves congratulations on his easy, readable style. This will ensure that the book will be read, rather than simply browsed by many' - Sexual and Relationship Therapy `Provides a very good introduction for counsellors in working with families.' - British Journal of Guidance & Counselling `In this highly readable text, the theory and practice of counselling couples and families are successfully integrated with principles from the Rogerian/person-centred approach. In this sense the book is unique: although a lot of counsellors in fact practice relational therapy from a person-centred perspective, until now, no basic text was available in this field' - Alfons Vansteenwegen, INTAMS Review In this unique book, the theory and practice of counselling couples and families are integrated with principles from the person-centred approach. With numerous examples from actual sessions, the book clearly illustrates the key issues that couples and families face, and the ways in which the counsellor can help them to resolve these to their own satisfaction. Written primarily from the viewpoint of working with couples and families, issues specific to relational counselling are contrasted to those that arise when counselling individuals or non-related groups. The author then explores the process of relational counselling using the person-centred principles of empathy, congruence, unconditional positive regard and non-interference with the clients' actualizing tendency.

Why is developing as a psychoanalytic practitioner so often laden with anxiety? A simple answer is that psychoanalytic work is intrinsically complex and difficult. But Laurence Spurling argues traditional accounts of practice make these difficulties even worse for students and practitioners: he shows that case descriptions and examples in psychoanalytic textbooks often give a misleading picture of practice, because they explore what practitioners ought to do rather than what they actually do. The Psychoanalytic Craft uniquely identifies and explores what is missing in these accounts of therapy, namely the 'craft' aspects of skilled psychoanalytic work: how theories and models are actually used in practice, what kind of reasoning is employed in conducting a session, how interventions are composed and evaluated. The book draws on recent research, as well as the wider craft literature to show how these features of clinical thinking, which normally operate below the level of awareness, can be identified and explored in clinical practice, in supervision and in teaching. This book has been written specifically for those students and practitioners moving beyond beginner level towards skilled and resourceful practice.

Short-term psychotherapy has become more and more popular in recent years and there is an increasing need for therapists to be able to offer help without entering into many years of therapy. This practical volume is an introductory text and a quick reference guide to short-term therapy, by an experienced therapist and teacher of psychodynamic short-term therapy. It is based on lectures given on the topic to experienced therapists wanting to familiarize themselves with short-term therapy. In a clear and concise manner, the author explores the basics of this approach and moves on to discuss such topics as the importance of the first session; the timescale of the therapy; the different techniques; and ending of analysis. Full of useful diagrams and bullet points, this volume is an indispensable guide to short-term psychodynamic therapy for experienced therapists, as well as laypeople who are interested in learning more about this method of therapy. "I have not been compelled, through pressure of numbers or financial limits, to adopt [short-term psychodynamic therapy]. Rather, I have seen the good effects that can be achieved in a relatively short time. I want to see clients helped out of their pain and towards a more free existence in the shortest possible time." -- From the Introduction
