What is feminist counseling? How does it differ from more traditional approaches to counseling? Can a feminist approach to counseling be used with male clients? In this practical volume, Chaplin weaves together theory and practice to provide a feminist guide to counseling from the referral process to termination. Topics addressed include: the initial interview process; developing feedback and interpretation skills; the special relationship between client and counselor; and techniques for treating depression, anxiety, and stress. In addition, exercises and discussion topics are included in each chapter. Designed as a step-by-step guidebook, Feminist Counseling In Action is an ideal text or text supplement for courses in clinical psychology. It will also be valuable to the professional counselor or therapist wishing to employ feminist counseling techniques in their own day-to-day work. "The book is stimulating, leaving many ideas to reflect on. It gives a constructive account of the distinctive features of feminist counselling, as process and relationship." --The British Journal of Psychiatry "Throughout the text, Chaplin's voice is one of optimism as she frames everything in life as rhythmic and cyclical--a pattern of beginnings, endings, and new beginnings. Her practice wisdom, solidly grounded in her own rhythms, is a gift to all." --AFFILIA "Case histories are detailed in the book which will be of help to trainee and practicing counsellors alike. . . . The book holds something of interest for all readers." --Morning Star "In a clear and practical way, the author shows how counselling can help 'to melt down' hierarchical ways of thinking and relating, and transform them into morehealthy processes of responding to rhythmic change." --Analytisch Repertorium

Praise for the First Edition:
`One of the best, and clearest, descriptions of the significance of the imposition of `masculine' patterns of thought on a culture... a lucid and non-jargon-fraught account of the strands of thought which make up the feminist approach to and adaptation of psychotherapy... makes exciting sense and the women in her case histories are horribly familiar. Here are our friends, acquaintances and selves; here are our problems, conflicts and miseries' - Brenda Polan, The Guardian
`An attractively written account... There is a good deal of feminine wisdom and spirituality here' - British Journal of Medical Psychology
`The case studies are extremely vivid and absorbing. Through these, Chaplin demonstrates that while the themes and hierarchies of women's experience are both common and socially constructed, they are also unique in their individual manifestation... raises issues that are relevant to all counsellors. It will be of interest to both sexes - particularly those who would not necessarily define themselves as feminist. The whole issue of gender in counselling is in need of further exploration, and this book makes a very good start' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling
`Gentle and thoughtful... I would certainly put it on the indicative reading list for counselling courses as it provides valuable insights into some of the important issues at stake' - Feminism & PsychologyAbout the Author:
Jocelyn Chaplin has been in private practice for many years in West London. She co-founded the Serpent Institute and leads workshops in London and Greece using the `feminine' way of rhythm and flow.
