Controversies in Psychotherapy and Counselling by Colin Feltham

Book Description

'My congratulations to Colin Feltham for assembling a set of contentious issues and lively authors which together made me forget my surroundings' - Person-Centred Practice 'Editor Colin Feltham's choice of topics shows an astute, on-the-ground awareness of the issues that dog the industry, while still making lively reading' - New Therapist In this book, leading practitioners, critics and commentators take sides on many topical and core debates including: * Theoretical issues: Does the unconscious really exist? Is birth trauma a fiction? Should one believe in 'false memories'? * Clinical issues: Is therapy effective? Is 'the relationship' central to success? Do therapists pathologize their clients? Are boundaries necessary? * Professional issues: Do trainees need therapy? Is professionalization of the field desirable? Are counselling and psychotherapy really distinguishable? * Social issues: Can therapy be proven necessary? Does therapy benefit individuals or contribute to social control? Does stress really exist?

Counselling and Counselling Psychology: A Critical Examination by Colin Feltham Counselling and Counselling Psychology: A Critical Examination, Paperback (April 2013)

Critique is the crux of good academic work, and functions as the hinge-point between scholarship, professional activity and practice. Each theory is only as strong as its capacity to withstand critical examination of its assumptions. Colin Feltham tests the theories, practice and research methods of counselling and counselling psychology.

Failure by Colin Feltham Failure, Paperback (June 2012)

Colin Feltham brings a much needed perspective on our perpetual striving towards perfectibility. Time to accept our non-omniscience and to rethink what it means to fail.
