Synopsis:
Counselling for Stress Problems, Second Edition, is a comprehensive guide to stress counselling and stress management from a multimodal perspective. Clear guidelines show practitioners how they can give their clients the most effective help for their stress problems using a technically eclectic and systematic approach.

The authors discuss the symptoms and causes of stress and outline a broad framework in which stress problems can be understood and assessed. They emphasize the importance of assessment in providing a useful guide to the selection of multimodal interventions and of tailoring the counselling approach to the problems of each client. Chapters discuss the range of interventions that can be used - cognitive, imagery, behavioural, sensory, interpersonal and health/lifestyle - and the most useful techniques that can be employed within these models, including:

o disputing irrational beliefs;

o coping imagery;

o relaxation training;

o assertion training.

The authors include illuminating case examples to illustrate commonly used techniques, and this new edition features two brand new case studies to further highlight practice. Counselling for Stress Problems, Second Edition, takes a pragmatic and empirical approach to stress counselling and provides an invaluable guide for psychotherapists, counselling and health psychologists, and practicing and trainee counsellors from all backgrounds.

Stephen Palmer is Founder Director of the Centre for Stress Management and the Centre for Coaching and is Honorary Professor of Psychology at City University. Windy Dryden currently works at Goldsmiths College where he is Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies as well as being the Programme Co-ordinator of the MSc in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy and the Diploma in Cognitive Approaches to Counselling and Psychotherapy.
