Government in Britain: A Volume in The Commonwealth and International Library: Social Administration, Training, Economics, and Production Division

Government in Britain focuses on the various aspects of the British government and how they work, from the Cabinet to the civil service, the House of Commons, economic affairs, and foreign affairs and defense. Emphasis is placed on certain areas of central government and the provision of social services.This book is comprised of eight chapters…

In an attempt to look afresh at the whole question of training, John Rowan proposes that there are three ways of doing therapy and any examination of training has to consider each of these:

* the instrumental, where the main emphasis is on the treating the client or patient
* the authentic way, where the main emphasis is on meeting the client or patient
* the transpersonal way, where main emphasis is on linking with the client in a more personal way.

Each approach makes different assumptions about the self, about the relationship, and about the level of consciousness involved in doing therapy. By challenging the basic precepts of traditional training, John Rowan encourages the reader to reconsider subjects including the difference between counselling and psychotherapy, culture and ethics, the origins of disturbance in clients, and child development.

The Future of Training in Psychotherapy and Counselling provides a much needed new perspective that will compel all psychotherapists and counsellors to take a closer look at training in the field.
