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.

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.

Counselling supervision is an expanding area, as increasing numbers of counsellors enter the profession and require supervision on a regular basis. Counselling Supervision in Organisations seeks to provide a model of counselling supervision within organisations, enabling supervisors, counsellors and their line managers to work effectively within organisational cultures for the benefit of all parties in the working alliance. Drawing on her own research, Sue Copeland explores both counselling and supervision cultures and their fit with various organisational cultures. The dilemmas that often arise from a clash between differing cultural norms are discussed in relation to the supervisory process. From securing a supervisory position, contracting for the work, reporting back to the organisation, assessing the work and ending the relationship, through to an in-depth consideration of the supervisory work embedded in a good working relationship, her model provides a blueprint for the supervisory process. The model described in Counselling Supervision in Organisations brings together the cultures of counselling and supervision and their relation to organisational cultures. It will provide a unique resource for counsellors, trainee and professional counselling supervisors and their line managers.

The chapter authors include a client of counseling, doctors, nurses, and counselors in the primary health care team, and specialist counselors from other settings.
