Introduction to Coaching Psychology covers key topics, including the background and development of coaching psychology, the coach-coachee relationship, coaching psychology approaches and models, and themes such as assessment, contracting, and the setup in coaching psychology practice. Applications in coaching psychology are considered, including a look at particular coaching psychology specialisms and interventions, as well as discussions about working in organisations, working with young people, and life and personal coaching. Professional practice issues, such as boundaries and best practice, and coaching and diversity, are also explored. Furthermore, a review of coaching psychology research is presented. The book also offers a rich collection of case studies to illustrate the practice of coaching psychology in a real-world setting and concludes with a consideration of the future of the field.

This timely and accessible book will be essential reading for anyone new to the field, as well as coaches, psychologists, and counsellors interested in the theory, research, and practice of coaching psychology.

"Routledge's Coaching Psychology book series has been an invaluable resource and a great example of an academic-practitioner approach in the fields of coaching and coaching psychology. Now it seems to be the time to look back and offer an overview of the field, starting with the development of coaching and coaching psychology, key approaches and models, applications and professional practice issues, as well as offer a look into the future of coaching. With its 14 chapters and an impressive line-up of contributors, Introduction to Coaching Psychology provides this systematic overview for a wide audience interested in one of the most exciting areas of contemporary psychology." - Jelena Pavlovic, PhD, Assistant Professor of Organizational Development and Change; founder of Koucing Centar, Serbia.

"I highly recommend this book, because it is just what coaches, coaching psychologists and junior psychologists interested in coaching psychology were waiting for on account of its contents, structure and, especially, its accuracy. It offers a global vision of the elements that are involved and determines the best practices in coaching psychology for example: approaches and models, applications, research, case studies, the coach-coachee relationship. I am also reminded of the significant role psychology bodies provide for coaching psychology in the international market as well as for promoting recognition by society in general." - Carmen Santos, President, COPC Coaching Psychology Section; Official Psychology Society of Catalonia, Spain.
