This handbook is aimed at clinicians wanting to cousel couples in hospital, community or domestic settings. Its focus is on helping the reader to form an alliance with the couple to maintain or improve health and well-being, and to show by case examples, and by evidence-based good practice, how to achieve this. It also shows how to refer the couple on when this cannot be achieved. The chapters are divided loosely around life cycle events, starting with couples in sexual health, ante natal and postnatal care, couples with sick children, trauma, mental health, chronic illness, later life and dying. Domestic violence and cultural issues are also included. The authors are themselves clinicians and trainers in couple therapy, and have created this practice-based text to the needs of general practitioners, professionals allied to medicine, nurses, counsellors and psychotherapists, as well as those who train and supervise them.

Health care settings can differ greatly from other counselling environments, requiring newcomers to become familiar with new rituals, practices and cultures. This clear and comprehensive text shows trainees and qualified practitioners how to respond positively and with confidence to the diverse situations they might face in a variety of health care settings. Practical, accessible and engaging, the book explores the ways in which the health care context – whether hospital, primary care, specialist or community setting - affects the counsellor's role and shapes the therapeutic process. The authors draw on their vast experience to give tried-and-tested advice on a variety of practice issues, from confidentiality and giving bad news to judging the pace and duration of sessions. In particular, the book: ■ provides a pluralistic model for practice, including systemic, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural and person-centred ideas; ■ shows how to work collaboratively and effectively in a multi-disciplinary team; ■ includes extensive examples, scripts of therapeutic encounters and handy checklists. Counselling in Health Care Settings makes an excellent resource for busy practitioners and is an essential handbook for newly qualified therapists and trainees.

The primary purposes of this volume are: 1. To provide mental health practitioners with a current overview of our knowledge about normal parental development during pregnancy and its relation to fetal development, with particular emphasis on the impact of acute and chronic stress on these developmental processes. 2. To provide an understanding of the general state of the field of pregnancy and childbirth care both in conventional health systems and in alternative options. 3. To provide an understanding of models of consultation and liaison that are adapt ed to the special conditions of pregnancy and childbirth care, as contrasted to the more traditional modes that characterize these activities in medical and surgical hospitals. If there prove to be secondary gains as a result of pursuing these goals, so much the better. The most desirable of these would be a heightening of awareness of the mental health needs of "pregnant families" and of the risks they incur in transition from non parenthood to parenthood, and a more effective level of primary and secondary prevention of childhood mental disorders. These latter goals are more global and perhaps even a bit grandiose. Their attainment could only be documented through a series of carefully designed research projects aimed at measuring long-range developmental outcome in children and families who have experienced appropriate and early intervention during the pregnancy period.
