Making the case for an integrated approach to the practices of counselling, psychotherapy and coaching, Personal Consultancy provides a coherent and systematic framework for working with clients. Nash Popovic and Debra Jinks use their experience in the area of integrative practice to demonstrate how this wider approach can be a more comprehensive way of helping clients than coaching or counselling on its own. The authors explain how a range of techniques and approaches from various one-to-one practices can be brought together under the framework of Personal Consultancy, creating a method that is systematic, ethical and professional but not limited by any particular theoretical bias or preconceptions. With chapters by guest authors who discuss their perspectives on the approach and its application across various contexts, Personal Consultancy demonstrates that it is possible to combine the reparative work normally associated with counselling with the more proactive, goal-oriented approach of coaching. The result is a method that allows clients to have their counselling and their coaching needs met within one relationship and which allows the practitioner more flexibility and freedom than when using a single approach. Personal Consultancy will be essential reading for practicing coaches and counsellors, especially those already integrating the two approaches or those looking to do so, as well as students and those in training.

Stephen Palmer is Joint award winner of the Annual Counselling Psychology Award for outstanding professional and scientific contribution to Counselling Psychology in Britain for 2000. `The editors' support for the integrative project is clear, but the book will hold its own with the sceptics too. I recommend it' - Counselling at Work This innovative and timely book examines the issues and ideas surrounding integration and eclecticism in a therapeutic context, and provides a detailed account of a wide range of approaches in use. Following an exploration of the origins of integrative and eclectic processes, 10 approaches are explained in detail. Chapters on each approach: describe its central concepts, assumptions and therapeutic goals; outline its view of how psychological disturbance is acquired, perpetuated and resolved; examine how the theory relates to practice - including examples of typical sessions and case studies; and consider which clients might benefit. Further chapters explore the implications of using integrative and eclectic approaches for training, supervision, for working in a time-limited context and from a multicultural perspective.

In addition to updates of all of the chapters, the new edition features: (1) eight new chapters covering topics such as cognitive-analytic therapy, integrative psychotherapy with culturally diverse clients, cognitive-behavioral analysis system, and blending spirituality with psychotherapy, (2) an entirely new section with two chapters on assimilative integration, (3) updated reviews of the empirical research on integrative and eclectic treatments, (4) chapter guidelines that facilitate comparative analyses and ensure comprehensiveness, and (5) a summary outline to help readers compare the integrative approaches. Blending the best of clinical expertise, empirical research, and theoretical pluralism, the revision of this "integration bible" will prove invaluable to practitioners, researchers, and students alike.

In order to meet the diverse needs of clients, many therapists are moving toward a more integrated approach to psychotherapy that considers many different theoretical approaches. Integrative Multitheoretical Psychotherapy explores how various theories may be successfully synthesized and describes this new approach by providing an overview of some of the ways in which psychotherapy has become more complex during the latter half of the twentieth century. The text explores how the various theories may be successfully synthesized. Brooks-Harris outlines seven theoretical models (cognitive, behavioral, experiential-humanistic, bio-psycho-social, psychodynamic-interpersonal, systemic-constructivist, and multicultural-feminist) for conceptualizing clients and guiding interventions. These models can be translated into practical skills and implemented with clients.The text's systematic, clearly written approach, combined with numerous figure illustrations, plentiful case studies and examples, highlighted key strategies throughout the chapters, and two summary appendixes, clarify the complex process of theoretical synthesis.
