Overview
Time-limited therapy provides a specific set of skills which enable the counsellor to cope successfully with the large number and wide range of referrals they can receive in primary care.This book covers a range of difficulties commonly presented in primary care - such as anxiety, stress, bereavement and depression - and explains how problems not usually considered appropriate for working within a time-limited framework - such as eating disorders, medical complaints and abuse - can also be helped effectively.Integrating counselling skills with psychological knowledge, the author presents an outline of the psychological and physical aspects of each presentation followed by clear and concise guidelines about how time-limited therapy can be used efficiently and realistically in each case. Carefully chosen case studies illustrate the skills in action, while further chapters discuss the management and administration of a counselling service within primary care, as well as how a time-limited service can be evaluated.As general practitioners are increasingly capping the number of counselling sessions they can provide, time-limited therapy skills are becoming ever-more important to counsellors working alongside GPs and with the clients they refer. This book will therefore be invaluable to all those who are working or who intend to work in a primary health care setting.
