Abstract:

The study of counselling can be a bewildering experience. Learning to be a counsellor involves developing practical skills, not just acquiring knowledge. And trainee counsellors must reflect on their own behaviour - the theory doesn't make sense without self-awareness. In A Safe Place for Change, two outstanding teachers have set out to demystify that crucial first year of learning. Crago and Gardner emphasise how 'holding' skills must come before skills that assist clients to 'explore' their presenting issues, and how both must precede interventions that challenge clients with 'gentle honesty'. They show why premature attempts to help clients change their behaviour are doomed to fail, and why counsellors should evaluate the appropriateness of their interventions by the way their clients respond to what they have said. They ask 'what happens at the third session?' and suggest what early dropouts mean, and how they can be minimised.
