"This book is necessary reading for all psychotherapists and counsellors who draw on a range of theoretical approaches when helping their clients. If you work, or want to work, pluralistically in this age of evidence, read this well-written book." Thomas Mackrill, Aarhus University, Denmark"This book comes at an opportune moment for practitioner training andpractice. It will be an invaluable source text for trainees and experiencedpractitioners seeking support in developing their understanding of , andpractice in, contemporary counselling and therapy." Dr Lynne GabrielReader in Counselling and Relational Ethics and Chair, BACPMick Cooper and John McLeod pioneer a major new framework for counselling theory, practice and research - the 'pluralistic' approach. This model breaks away from the orientation-specific way in which counselling has traditionally been taught, reflecting and responding to shifts in counselling and psychotherapy training.As accessible and engaging as ever, Cooper and McLeod argue that there is no one right way of doing therapy and that different clients need different things at different times. By identifying and demonstrating the application of a range of therapeutic methods, the book outlines a flexible framework for practice within which appropriate methods can be selected depending on the client's individual needs and the therapist's knowledge and experience.This is a must-read for anybody training or practising in the counselling or helping professions - it should not be missed!
