The Skilled Helper: A Client-Centred Approach by Egan, G
Publisher: Cengage 2018
Now in its second edition, this adaption for Europe, Middle East and Africa of Gerard Egan's The Skilled Helper: A Client-Centred Approach teaches students a proven step-by-step counselling process to enable them to become confident and competent helpers.
Internationally recognised for its emphasis on the collaborative nature of the therapist-client relationship and the vital importance of a client-centred approach, the text offers a practical three-stage model which encourages a problem-managing and opportunity-developing approach to helping clients.
The book integrates the most relevant aspects of different theoretical orientations (humanistic, cognitive, behavioural, and solution-focused) into a pragmatic approach to helping.
