Psychodynamic Counselling in a Nutshell

Third Edition (Updated Edition)

Susan Howard explains in clear, jargon-free style, the concepts at the heart of the psychodynamic approach, and, drawing on case material, describes the therapeutic practice which rests on those ideas. Assuming no previous knowledge of the subject, the book introduces:

  • The history of the approach,
  • Main key concepts, and
  • Practical techniques used by practitioners

In the first chapter, you are introduced to a client, Layla, whose case you'll revisit throughout the book, helping you connect theory and practice.

This edition includes new material on working with diversity and difference, neuroscience and extended discussion on ethics.
