Book Description

In Clinical Counselling in Further and Higher Education, a range of well-known contributors show how this potential conflict can be used to the advantage of the counsellor.
Clinical counselling in further and higher education is unique in that the counsellors work is, in most cases, to assist the primary educational task, rather than be an end in itself. Yet little has been written about the implications or possibilities of what is a complex relationship. It should prove invaluable to students, practising counsellors and psychotherapists.
