The very nature of counselling and psychotherapy practice means that assessing a client is not one easily outlined activity, but a continuous and at times complex process that requires much sensitivity and critical awareness. Counselling and Psychotherapy students must not only demonstrate the interpersonal skills necessary for assessment but also the theoretical knowledge and analytical processes that underpin it. This timely and accessible book offers students and trainees a thorough guide to clinical assessment. It covers different types of clinical assessment and explores the implications of the alternative views on clients needs and treatment. The Authors argue that clinical assessment is both an art and science, bringing the reader up-to-date with the new requirements placed on therapists in both organisational and clinical practice-based settings. There are sections on signposting within an NHS setting, reflective and reflexive practice, research and evidence-based practice and assessment in both public and private practice.
