Now adapted for the Europe, Middle East and African market, Gerard Egan’s The Skilled Helper: A Client-Centred Approach teaches students a proven step-by-step counselling process to enable them to become confident and competent helpers. Internationally recognised for its emphasis on the collaborative nature of the therapist-client relationship and the vital importance of a client-centred approach, the text offers a practical three-stage model which drives client problem-managing and opportunity-developing action. The book integrates the most relevant aspects of different theoretical orientations (humanistic, cognitive, cognitive-behavioural, and solution-focused) into a pragmatic approach to helping.
