Psychodynamic Counselling in Action is widely regarded as the most accessible introduction to the psychodynamic approach, making it ideal for readers who are new to the subject.In this fourth edition of his bestselling book, Michael Jacobs describes the psychodynamic counselling process from initial meeting right through to the end of the relationship. He sets out the main theory and principles involved in psychodynamic work and - through two case studies - a man and a woman - shows how these can be applied creatively and effectively within the process. In this new, updated edition, each chapter of the book now includes a set of thought-provoking training exercises, designed by Michael to help readers develop their psychodynamic counselling skills, to promote discussion of each stage of the counselling process, and to translate psychodynamic theory into practice. Psychodynamic Counselling in Action has been instrumental in training many thousands of counsellors and continues to be the essential text for a wide range of courses.

'Brilliant, enlightening, practical. A gem of a book.'
British Journal of Guidance and Counselling
'This is one of a very small number of books that manage to describe simply, but not simplistically, what analytic work involves.'
British Journal of Medical Psychology
'One of the most reliable (and readable) guides to what is involved in counselling... Jacobs' well-organised and comprehensive summaries of the main theories and his illustrations of psychodynamic counselling drawn from his own work will inspire students and trainees on counselling and therapy courses. They will also interest (and create envy) in more experienced readers.'

Michael Jacobs is Visiting Professor at the University of Leeds and Bournemouth University, a Fellow of BACP and a UKCP registered psychotherapist.
