Counsellors frequently work with people who are under stress or who are distressed - but counselling them can itself be a highly stressful activity. This supportive book examines the sources of stress for counsellors and the practical strategies that they can use to overcome it. Stress may emerge in the work that counsellors do with specific client groups, in the contexts in which counselling takes place and in the educational process both for counsellor educators and for counsellors in training. In this book, practising counsellors with first-hand experience of dealing with stress examine the nature of the stresses that counsellors face in these different areas, detail the typical responses (both healthy and unhealthy) tha

The co-authors... have endeavoured to give a thorough and practical guide to this vast subject and they have managed to do this within the confines of an easy-to-read, cheap and relatively short paperback... a very useful practical volume for the general counsellor to have on their book shelf′ - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy This comprehensive guide views stress counselling and management from a multimodal perspective. Clear guidelines show practitioners how they can give their clients the most effective help for their stress problems using a technically eclectic and systematic approach. The authors discuss the symptoms and causes of stress and outline a framework in which stress problems can be understood. They emphasize the importance of assessment as a guide to the selection of multimodal interventions and of tailoring the counselling approach for each client. Chapters discuss the range of interventions that can be used - cognitive, imagery, behavioural, sensory, interpersonal and health/lifestyle - and the most useful techniques that can be employed within these models, such as disputing irrational beliefs, coping imagery, psychodrama, relaxation training and assertion training. Case examples illustrate commonly used techniques.
