Counselling Older Clients by Ann Orbach

Book Description

'This is a warm, compassionate, wise book, the crystallization of Anne Orbach's many years experience of psychotherapy and counseling with the elderly people. It opens up many vistas, questions and creative possibilities for work in this field' - "British Journal of Psychotherapy". '"Counselling Older Clients" is a handbook for practitioners, trainers and student counselors who are interested in the experience of aging and old age. The book offers a good beginning and a functional training tool for practitioners new to the field' - "Ageing and Society". 'This book is wise for its years! Offers so much to all of us - not just those of us working with the 'elderly' There is something to delight, inform and challenge everyone' - "Quality in Ageing". '...invaluable to those in counseling training, for carers working with the older age group and for experienced counselors who maybe interested in working with older clients' - "Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal". "Counselling Older Clients" is a much-needed guide for practitioners working with older clients in a range of settings. Highlighting the stereotypes and prejudices which frequently exist around aging, Ann Orbach gives practical advice on how to develop an approach to counseling which is both age-affirmative and thoroughly in tune with the needs of older clients. The book explores the difficulties which people commonly experience as they get older and through examples, shows how client's can be helped in areas such as: adjusting to retirement; the loss of a partner; and, coming to terms with aging. Examining different methods of working with older clients, including brief and open-ended contracts and the use of stories to facilitate the therapeutic process, "Counselling Older Clients" is invaluable reading for counselors and other professionals working with older people.

Books By Author Ann Orbach

Life, Psychotherapy and Death by Ann Orbach Life, Psychotherapy and Death, Paperback (April 1999)

In this rich and humane book Ann Orbach explores, from the point of view of a psychotherapist, the subject of death in all its manifestations. Her intention is to look at death and what it means to us, as a means of coming to terms with the inevitable, and helping others to do so.

Not Too Late by Ann Orbach Not Too Late, Paperback (September 1996)

Old age is a stage of human development which has largely been neglected in the field of psychotherapy. Not Too Late looks at ageing and psychotherapy from the perspectives of both client and therapist and challenges the view that only short-term therapy or counselling is suitable and that psychoanalysis is just for the young.
