Cognitive behavioral psychotherapy is much more than a series of skills and techniques, but rather a vital human activity. It starts with the inner being of the therapist, that is, his or her personality and character, and then moves to the outer world of strategies and tactics. Drawing on a wealth of personal and professional experience, Dr. Russell Grieger illuminates ten inner perspectives that transform a technician into a psychotherapist, including the fundamental nature of being human, the power of passionate purpose, fearlessness, the pursuit of elegance, ridding self-esteem, and more. For the practicing clinician, the therapist in training, and the interested layperson, this book should be in everyone's library.

On Becoming a Psychologist explores the professional identity construction of psychology students, examining their entry into the psychology profession from a socio-cultural perspective. The book brings together socio-cultural approaches and Dialogical Self Theory to gain comprehensive insight into the developmental processes behind the formation of professional identity. It conceptualises the process of becoming a psychologist as an intrapersonally and interpersonally unique semiotic process of self-regulation that unfolds through dialogical relations with the individual’s socio-cultural surroundings. Building on empirical research, the book outlines the results of a longitudinal study of a cohort of psychology students throughout their studies and following their graduation. The study sheds light on how professional role expectations are negotiated between the different aspects of the self, with a particular focus on how the self is positioned throughout the course of professional education. Offering a unique perspective on the socio-cultural construction of professional identity, this book will be of great interest to scholars, researchers and graduate students in the fields of cultural psychology, applied psychology and social psychology.

For more than thirty years, On Being a Therapist has inspired generations of mental health professionals to explore the most private and sacred aspects of their work helping others. In this thoroughly revised and updated fifth edition, Jeffrey Kottler explores many of the challenges that therapists face in their practices today, including pressures from increased technology, economic realities, and advances in theory and technique.

This new edition includes updated sources, new material on technology, new problems that therapists face, and two new chapters: "On Being a Therapeutic Storyteller-and Listener" and "On Being a Client: How to Get the Most from Therapy." Generations of students and practitioners in counseling, clinical psychology, social work, psychotherapy, marriage and family therapy, and human services have found comfort and confidence in On Being a Therapist, and this Fifth Edition -- intended to be the author's last major update to the seminal work -- only builds upon this solid foundation as it continues to educate helping professionals everywhere.

The book is targeted at all practitioners in the helping and enabling professions working with children and young people, especially teachers, and is essential reading for anyone undertaking training where elements of psychotherapy and counselling are requisite to practice. As well as a guide for trainees in the helping professions, the book also speaks to advancing practitioners insofar as essential elements of the therapeutic relationship, such as containment, trust and transference, are re-cast in light of the modern challenges of working with children, especially young children. There are an increasing number of courses in the UK (and abroad) which focus on developing practitioners who are delivering early interventions for mental health issues and so The Essentials of Counselling and Psychotherapy in Primary Schools offers a strong underpinning. This book is particularly timely in light of the government’s policy emphasis on increasing MH understanding for schools.
