Product Description: `This excellent book contains information about six key therapeutic approaches. Six Key Approaches to Counselling and Therapy gives the reader a good understanding of the therapeutic approach in question. This book may well become a key text of counsellor training programmes' - Counselling Psychology Review

`Although designed as a text book, this introduction to the main schools and methods of psychotherapy is one of the most engaging pieces of psychological theory I have ever encountered. I was initially skeptical, having found similar books both narrow and hard work, conceptually. Due to the fact I have never studied the fundamentals of psychology and therapy, I have often found secondary source material too high level, presuming prior knowledge, and therefore it was useless to me. This book changed that, profoundly. The chapters on Jung and Rogers were both lucid and interesting, and gave me a keen insight into the fundamentals of their theories and the processes of therapy based upon them. However, what truly threw me was the excellence of the chapter on Gestalt therapy. I cannot put into words to how inspirational this section was' - Amazon Review

`Richard Nelson-Jones's achievement is to make accessible to the interested reader in one chapter the complexity of Jung's metapsychology' - Ann Casement, Jungian Psychoanalyst

`Excellent. A lively introduction to person-centred therapy' - Professor Brian Thorne, Director, Centre for Counselling Studies, University of East Anglia

`A very clear, accurate and thorough introduction to person-centred therapy' - Professor Petruska Clarkson, PHYSIS and University of Surrey

`I find the chapter on REBT to be excellent' - Dr Albert Ellis, President, Albert Ellis Institute for Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, New York City

`Clear, thorough... succinctly summarizes CT's most important concepts and principles' - Dr Judith S Beck, Director, Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research, Philadelphia

This is an authoritative and accessible textbook for use on introductory courses in the theory and practice of counselling and therapy. It presents two approaches from each of the three main schools of contemporary therapy practice:

}} the psychodynamic school- Freud's psychoanalysis and Jung's analytical therapy

}} the humanistic school - person-centred and Gestalt therapy; and

}} the cognitive-behavioural school - rational-emotive behaviour therapy and cognitive therapy.

In addition, the book discusses the structure and functions of theories, reviews issues in evaluating therapeutic approaches, and contains a glossary.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
