"Scholarly, dynamic, thought provoking. The multidimensional framework provided by Lapworth and Sills continue to engages successfully with the paradox of integrative work: a highly personal approach to therapy, resting on the integrity and judgement of the individual practitioner - and, at the same time, the way of working most likely to enable us to remain true to our values and ethics whilst managing the huge collective political and regulatory challenges our field faces in the years ahead." - Professor Andrew Samuels, University of Essex
An excellent no nonsense clear guide for students to really understand integration. I'm going to direct my students to this as it is well laid out, follows a logical path and is very readable.
An essential core text for Integrative counselling theory and practice especially L4 L5 courses
Clarifies what is meant by integrative counselling, a great book for students
Very useful resource for practitioners who want to develop their understanding about integration of theoretical models in counselling and psychotherapy.
The first edition was foundational in my own personal integrative development. I'm sure this edition will be just as helpful to trainees.
A scholarly text with interesting and useful ideas for students studying personal integration.
This is a well written book, which offers its reader excellent insight into integration and the processes involved. It is easily accessed, but still in-depth enough to give a real sense of this difficult topic. The authors have provided good case study material, which challenges and wrestles with the problems associated with integration. A must for all practitioners and students!
Integration in Counselling and Psychotherapy is essential to any practising counsellor or student who is interested in working with different models in a coherent way.
This publication takes you through the ideas and process of integration in a step by step way, leaving a clear understanding.
An approachable introduction to what is, if tackled properly, a complex subject.
The book provides a good general discussion of psychotherapy integration. For me though, it narrows the discussion too quickly onto an examination of a particular approach to integration.
An easily accessible text providing a range of approaches to integration placed within a historical context. A useful textbook for students on courses that explore a range of counselling aproaches alongside a core theoretical model and may assist in shaping students thinking about integration in their own practice. An enjoyable read overall.
As our course is integrative trhis text is sound reading for students, taking them further into the integrative counselling world.
Good coverage of approaches, and issues, around integration in counselling. Helpful for students in building their own integrative approach.
At once both personal & informative, pluralisitc and accessible. A delight.
Highly recommended for counselling trainees and those practitioners interested in integrating approaches into a coherent framework.
One of the features I enjoyed most about this book is how it is suitable and provocative for both experienced and beginning therapists. I guess the topic of integration is rather fluid yet structured simultaneously and will be interpreted differently from practitioner, research and theoretical perspectives. Thus lending itself to many hours of thoughtful and insightful reading.
This book gives an excellent overall view of the personal approach to integration in counselling work
