The Trainee Handbook: A Guide for Counselling and Psychotherapy Trainees

by Mary Watts (Editor), Mary Watts (Editor), Robert Bor (Editor)

Synopsis

`The book was refreshingly realistic, recognizing that trainees have lives and commitments outside their training course and that the task of juggling all the different demands is not an easy one.... I would definitely recommend this book to fellow trainees. I think it will become a must have at the start of any course and an essential resource to be referred to over and over' - Counselling Psychology Review

This comprehensive overview and supportive guide to the practical, technical and administrative issues faced by trainees on counselling, counselling psychology and psychotherapy courses encourages trainees to get the most from their courses.

The Trainee Handbook guides trainees through the day-to-day difficulties they are likely to face, addressing specific needs such as finding the right training course, improving written communication skills, and dealing with anxieties often provoked by the practical aspects of training courses. The information and guidance on skills will improve trainees' course work and help them to be more confident and competent throughout the training process.

Media Reviews
`This is the book I was looking for before, during and after training. It provides clarity and dispenses with the anxiety associated with the belief that I never quite knew the whole picture. It enables trainee and new practitioner alike to draw boundaries around how much is necessary to know at any given time, and helps individuals prioritise in a way that doesn't overwhelm. The chapters are accessible, clear and compact... The unity in the book is remarkable and is a tribute to Bor and Watts... They state in their introduction that it was written in response to trainees' questions, and, for myself, the time wasted not knowing where to look or who or what to ask could have been very well served by this timely edition' - Counselling News
