Description - Hard-Earned Lessons from Counselling in Action by Windy Dryden
In this volume, the contributors share the lessons they have learned over the course of their careers as practitioners. Their combined experience proves that "all" counsellors, no matter how expert or well-known, have made mistakes, or faced challenges and have had to learn from them aspects about the process of counselling - the hard way. Fifty "lessons" - five from each contributor - are related individually to the context of each counsellor's particular circumstances. A concluding section in each chapter links together the connecting themes that emerged throughout their learning process. Supportive and encouraging, these personal accounts of growth and development are representative of the problems that emerge in the practice of counselling.
