The Therapeutic Use of Self has continued, since its publication in 1999, to be considered a key text within integrative, humanistic and relational approaches for the training and development of therapists in the UK and abroad. This long-awaited classic edition includes powerful case examples and extensive research findings, presenting the counsellor's evaluation of their own practice as the main vehicle for the development of insight and awareness into individual 'therapeutic' characteristics. The book addresses many of the taboos and infrequently discussed aspects of therapy, such as: * The value of therapist failure * Breaking the rules of counselling * Working beyond the accepted boundaries of counselling. The Therapeutic Use of Self will help professionals and trainees acknowledge, develop and value their own unique contribution to counselling and psychotherapy. The book remains a ground-breaking examination of the individual therapist's contribution to process and outcome in counselling and supervision.
