Clinical Counselling in Community and Voluntary Settings provides an overview of the development of counselling in a world of managed care, where resources are tight and professionals are stretched to their limits. Experienced contributors from a varied and diverse background cover issues including:
* the place of community and voluntary organisations in society at large
* the nature of counselling in voluntary and community settings
* containment and holding
* the nature of the client group and its affect on clinical work
This book will provide theoretical and practical advice of interest to both experienced practitioners and students considering a placement with a voluntary counselling organisation.
