'This is one of those rare books which will attract a wide readership because it operates at so many different levels. It is, by turn, scholarly, dramatic, challenging, prophetic, practical, intensely personal and yet with implications which, if taken seriously, could transform the whole field of counselling and psychotherapy' "- Brian Thorne, The Norwich Centre for Personal & Professional Development " "" 'This new text by Dave Mearns and Mick Cooper is at once timely, informative, challenging and a delight to read' - "Professor Ernesto Spinelli, Senior Fellow, School of Psychotherapy and Counselling, Regent's College, London "" " """" "'"""This is an important book. It integrates concepts and practices from a range of approaches to therapy, and offers a convincing and original perspective that has the potential to inform practice, training and research for many years to come' - "John McLeod, Professor of Counselling, Tayside Institute for Health Studies, University of Abertay Dundee"" " """" ""Working at Relational Depth in Counselling and Psychotherapy is a ground breaking text, which goes to the very heart of the therapeutic meeting between therapist and client. Focusing on the concept of 'relational depth', Dave Mearns and Mick Cooper describe a form of encounter in which therapist and client experience profound feelings of contact and engagement with each other, and in which the client has an opportunity to explore whatever is experienced as most fundamental to her or his existence. Drawing from their own practice, interviews with therapists and a diverse range of theoretical and empirical sources, the authors address the key question of how therapists can meettheir clients at a level of relational depth. They show how different aspects of the therapist combine to facilitate a relationally-deep encounter, highlight the various personal blocks' which may be encountered along the way, and introduce new therapeutic concepts such as 'holistic listening' which can help therapists to meet their clients at this level. Two powerful case studies a client with a drink problem and a traumatized client have been selected to illustrate key aspects of working at relational depth. Like many of the ideas discussed in this book, the case studies represent a challenge to conventional thinking about the therapist-client relationship and the nature of the therapeutic process. Eagerly awaited by many counsellors and psychotherapists, Working at Relational Depth in Counselling and Psychotherapy is a source of fresh thinking and stimulating ideas about the therapeutic encounter which are relevant to trainees and practitioners of all orientations. Dave Mearns is Professor of Counselling, University of Strathclyde. His previous books with SAGE include Person-Centred Counselling in Action, Second Edition (with Brian Thorne), Developing Person-Centred Counselling, Second Edition and Person-Centred Counselling Training. Mick Cooper is Senior Lecturer in Counselling, University of Strathclyde. His previous publications include Existential Therapies (SAGE Publications, 2003).
