Personal development is integral to much counselling and psychotherapy training.
Self-awareness and critical reflection are also vital for developing effective therapeutic relationships.
This uniquely focused sourcebook offers a fascinating range of approaches to the challenging and sometimes elusive task of self-development and self understanding. This textbook begins by introducing four core ways of seeing the 'self': as multiple, contextual, open to change, and always in relation to the 'other', and finishes by bringing together a range of specialist practitioners to explore different pathways to self understanding.
Self Awareness and Personal Development provides hands-on resources for the ongoing project of exploring the self.
It is an invaluable text for students, trainees and practitioners in counselling and psychotherapy.
