Preventive Counseling: Helping People to Become Empowered in Systems and Settings

Synopsis

Preventive Counseling is an updated and revised edition to the 1987 text, Primary Preventive Counseling, a book which was ahead of its time, released when the concepts and practice of preventive counselling were in their infancy. A trailblazer fifteen years ago, Dr. Conyne remains at the forefront of this burgeoning movement and has provided both students and practitioners with a long-overdue second edition. Expanding upon the model developed in the earlier work, this revised edition focuses on 'everyday prevention' techniques that allow practitioners to quickly and seamlessly integrate prevention into their existing practice. A new section devoted to the applications of preventive counselling has been added, and the text now features an integrative approach to prevention and treatment. Written for both students and practitioners alike, this wholly updated and revised edition is sure to become a standard resource within the growing field of counselling psychology.
