`I enjoyed the read, learned a lot and thought that it is an excellent resource for counsellors and trainers who wish to review their practice. [It] should be required reading on all counselling training courses' - Disability & Society Anti-discriminatory Counselling Practice is a ground-breaking text and an enlightening introduction to the complex issues which affect all trainees and practitioners in counselling, psychotherapy and other helping professions. The book identifies the origins of discrimination, oppression and disadvantage and shows how they impinge on therapeutic relationships. Drawing together contributions from leading writers, the book shows how oppression is created not only by overt prejudice, but also by deeply ingrained social, political and cultural processes which involve us all, but of which we are often unaware. These processes cause individuals to become disadvantaged merely on the basis of their gender, race, culture, age, sexuality or ability. Examining these areas of discrimination, the contributors highlight the issues which feature frequently in therapeutic encounters and the need for counsellors to develop their skills as culturally sensitive, reflective practitioners. Anti-discriminatory Counselling Practice is a groundbreaking text and an enlightening introduction to complex issues, which affect all trainees and practitioners in counselling, psychotherapy and other helping professions.

`Essential reading for student, fledgling and experienced counsellors alike' - Mark Edwards, Nurturing Potential `Beautifully written and well researched and full of useful structured exercise for therapists and clients, this is a combination of psychology textbook and counselling handbook - theoretical a, yet practical' - Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal Counselling and the Life Course introduces counsellors to the concept of the life course as a multidimensional and multidisciplinary framework for thinking about clients' lives within and beyond the counselling setting. It aims to give counsellors an understanding of human development, and how it impacts practically upon their work with clients. The book engages with the tension between, on the one hand, recognizing age and life stage as important dimensions of difference, and on the other, avoiding the pitfalls of age stereotyping and ageist discrimination. At the same time, Counselling and the Life Course shows how the concept of the life course can be used as a framework for considering the commonalities between different life stages. This provides a focus for counsellors of how to draw on their existing skills and expertise when working with clients of a different age and life stage to those with whom they generally meet. The impact of both counsellor and client age on the counselling relationship is also considered. The book includes an `Activity Trail' of structured exercises in order to encourage reflection on the concepts discussed and their relevance to clients, the readers themselves, and their counselling practice.
