The definitions for more than 1000 terms used in the field of counselling are contained in this volume. As well as covering theory and practice, this book also includes client concerns and problems which may be helped by counselling and issues of professional and ethical interest to practitioners and clients, and words used in everyday language which have a particular meaning in a counselling context. Among the terms explained are: acceptance, accreditation, bulimia nervosa, cathect, double-bind, empty chair, genuineness, iatrogenic, Karpman triangle, laddering, medication, neurolinguistic programming, punctuality, Reichian, somatise, touching, underdog, vicarious modelling, wounded healer and yes-but. The dictionary has been compiled by Colin Feltham, a practicing coundellor and trainer, and Windy Dryden, Britain's first Professor of Counselling, in conjunction with a number of professionals in the field. Of particular value to students and others seeking to familiarize themselves with the language of counselling and therapy, the dictionary should also be a useful source of reference for practitioners and trainers who want to keep themselves up-to-date with current terminology.
