Review:

`Counselling brings together in one volume a collection of some of the finest work to have appeared over the past few years in the journal of the same name, put out by the BACP....it tackles some of the mainstream issues about which one may wich to refresh one's knowledge, but manages to get right to the fringes in places one may find rather intriguing and novel (eg. General practice counselling: A plea for idealogocal engagement, Counselling interventions with men who batter: Partner safety and the duty to warn and The aftermath of abuse: The effects of counselling on the client and the counsellor)' - New Therapist

`This Second Volume of Counselling: the BACP Counselling Reader is a comprehensive array of articles which convey the breadth and depth of the specialty as it grew during the 1990s. The volume brings together the most important and influential papers published in Counselling, the official journal of the British Association for Counselling as it then was, over the last decade.

In all, 92 articles have been chosen and scrupulously checked by the editors and, in most cases, the original authors, to fill the 670 pages of the second volume. These provide direct access to the main theories, practices and issues which underpinned and continue to shape counselling and psychotherapy today. Each article concludes with discussion points to provoke further thought and study. For ease of access these papers are clustered in five sections: counselling approaches, contexts and practice, counselling issues, research, the future. We can expect the number of research articles to double in the next volume as the way opens up for all practitioners to consider research a crucial part of professional life. The final section on the future has been written by the past Chief Executive of BACP, and contains insight and wisdom on the challenges facing the profession at the dawn of the new century, with statutory regulation only a few years away.

BACP receives many requests for back copies of the journal, Counselling, upon which this Reader is based, for use in training courses and programme. The Second Volume of the Reader merits at least one copy in every medical library across the land for use not only in counselling and psychotherapy training, but for all those healthcare workers who use counselling skills in their work' - Maggie Pettifer, past Head of Publishing of BACP for Counselling and Psychotherapy Research
