Book Description

Clinical Counselling in Primary Care examines the complexities and variety of uses of clinical counselling employed in a medical setting. With an estimated 2 in 3 GP sugeries now employing a counsellor or refering patients on a regular basis, this book tackles key debates head-on. It discusses a range of important clinical issues such as:
* therapeutic framework
* clinical work as part of the greater whole
* the need to develop suitable therapeutic models.
Clinical Counselling in Primary Care looks at possible developments in the future and argues for the improvement of the standing of counselling in relation to other primary care professsions.
