Jewels for the Journey
This book gathers together contributions from mental health professionals, carers and mental health service users and survivors. It addresses the stigma that can surround both mental health and spirituality and explores the spiritual in mental health care, teasing out its implications for research, education, training and good practice.
Exploring a Hidden Meaningful Dimension
Gubi argues that philosophically, all counselling can be regarded as prayer, particularly when working at relational depth; that prayer plays an important part in maintaining many mainstream counsellors' well-being and, with considered ethical awareness, prayer can be integrated ethically into counselling when working with people of faith.
Making Sense of Self
Although currently many people with dementia are not given the opportunity to receive professional counselling, this book explores the value of counselling for people living with this condition and how it enables them to make sense of themselves. The author shows how counselling can have positive outcomes for those with dementia and their carers.
Inspirational and Practical Ideas to Stimulate the Imagination
This accessible book comprises a collection of 80 tried-and-tested exercises, with guidelines for applying them and advice for devising new ones. Liesl Silverstone offers a variety of exercises for a diverse and multicultural client base and some examples of working with adults with learning difficulties and children.
