In Clinical Counselling in Further and Higher Education, a range of well-known contributors show how this potential conflict can be used to the advantage of the counsellor. Clinical counselling in further and higher education is unique in that the counsellors work is, in most cases, to assist the primary educational task, rather than be an end in itself. Yet little has been written about the implications or possibilities of what is a complex relationship. It should prove invaluable to students, practising counsellors and psychotherapists.

"Student counselling is taking place within a rapidly changing context, the future of student counselling depends on practitioners' ability to learn from the past but also on their capacity to speak clearly and uncompromisingly about their work in the present. In this book Elsa Bell traces the history and development of counselling in further and higher education. She shows how, just as in a counselling session, the past is evident and powerful in the present. Illustrations from current work show the complexities of student counselling in practice and highlight the need for highly skilled practitioners who are capable of dealing with a wide range of people and problems. The book argues that central to student counselling is the need for a sophisticated understanding of organizations and their impact on individuals and on counselling practice."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

As demand for counselling from students across Higher Education (HE) increases year on year, counselling services are continually seeking to explore creative ways of working under the pressure that results from this rise in client numbers. One of the most frequent responses to increased demand is limiting the number of sessions that individual students may have. Until Short-term Counselling in Higher Education, there has been no text which provides a contextual, theoretical and practical input to this evolving way of working. This book explores constructive ways of providing very short-term counselling within a Higher Education context. Using case-studies, and employing up-to-date statistics from the sector, the book gives readers a clear understanding of the nature of the professional challenges, and offers ways of addressing these, including managing waiting lists, developing policies to facilitate timely intervention, and understanding the limitations of what short-term therapy can offer. Short-term Counselling in Higher Education explores the implications of working in Higher Education counselling services in this very short-term way, and as such it will be an essential resource for counsellors, heads of counselling services and student services managers in Higher Education, helping to find ways of delivering effective short-term interventions within existing counselling services.

Yet this role has often gone unacknowledged, and little has been written about the implications of its distinctive identity within counselling. Clinical Counselling in Pastoral Settings fills this gap by offering an exploration of clinical issues that are distinctive to the work of pastoral counsellors in a way that is made clearly relevant to practice, whilst exploring wider issues. Contents include: * Pastoral counselling in multi-cultural settings * Pastoral counselling and the therapeutic frame * Transference within the pastoral counselling relationship * Integrated theology and psychology in pastoral counselling * The promise and difficulties of pastoral counselling
