This accessible introduction to cognitive-emotive-behavioural coaching (CEBC) emphasises the role emotions play in coaching and explores how coaches can acknowledge them in their work, as well as demonstrating how CEBC can be enriched with a flexible and pluralistic approach.
Windy Dryden explores both the range of issues that CEBC can deal with, including practical problems, emotional difficulties and self-development, and outlines the frameworks that coaches need in order to work in each type of CEBC. The book also includes a discussion of the central role of the coaching alliance and is illustrated with three case studies.
Written in Dryden’s characteristically clear and straightforward style, this book will be essential reading for coaches of all backgrounds, including those in training, coaching psychologists and coach supervisors.
