`A welcome addition to the series. The co-authors... have endeavoured to give a thorough and practical guide to this vast subject and they have managed to do this within the confines of an easy-to-read, cheap and relatively short paperback... a very useful practical volume for the general counsellor to have on their book shelf' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy

This comprehensive guide views stress counselling and management from a multimodal perspective. Clear guidelines show practitioners how they can give their clients the most effective help for their stress problems using a technically eclectic and systematic approach.

The authors discuss the symptoms and causes of stress and outline a framework in which stress problems can be understood. They emphasize the importance of assessment as a guide to the selection of multimodal interventions and of tailoring the counselling approach for each client. Chapters discuss the range of interventions that can be used - cognitive, imagery, behavioural, sensory, interpersonal and health/lifestyle - and the most useful techniques that can be employed within these models, such as disputing irrational beliefs, coping imagery, psychodrama, relaxation training and assertion training. Case examples illustrate commonly used techniques.
