Description - Feminist Counselling in Action by Jocelyn Chaplin

SAGE celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Counselling in Action in November 2008. To view the video - click here -------------------------------------------------------------------- Praise for the First Edition: 'One of the best, and clearest, descriptions of the significance of the imposition of "masculine" patterns of thought on a culture...a lucid and non-jargon-fraught account of the strands of thought which make up the feminist approach to and adaptation of psychotherapy' - The Guardian For counsellors, therapists, trainees and others who want a deeper understanding of how society affects them psychologically, the revised and updated edition of Feminist Counselling in Action is the ideal resource. Drawing on feminist theory, Jocelyn Chaplin points to the deeply entrenched, hierarchical ways of thinking which permeate every level of our lives. The author presents an alternative rhythm model that when applied in counselling increases self-confidence, 'wholeness' and improved relationships. In this model, the counsellor is not seen as the expert or the doctor, and the client is not a patient. They are two equal but different people using 'clues' to understand and improve the life of the client. To illustrate, the author includes vivid case examples throughout.
