Description

The authors have brought together important research into little-explored topics that are applicable to the field of counselling and psychotherapy. Each contributor has undertaken qualitative research into their chosen topic, and this book disseminates that research in a highly accessible manner. The aim of the volume is to inform counsellors and psychotherapists, and those in allied professions who support and care for people, towards developing a greater awareness of issues they may encounter. These include sexuality after breast cancer in young, single women; the impact of pregnancy loss on women who delayed childbirth and remain childless; adult reflections on being an only child; processing parental rejection through personal development; the nature of school-based counselling; the impact of emotional labour on secondary school teachers; and the impact of inappropriately referred clients on counselling trainees in placement.
