9780415730853: Interacting Selves: Systemic Solutions for Personal and Professional Development in Counselling and Psychotherapy

The counselling and psychotherapy professions have experienced a rapid growth and expansion throughout Europe, and internationally. State regulation of these professional practices has required personal development hours for those in training, continuing professional development for all qualified practitioners as well as supervision of their practice.

Interacting Selves provides concepts and principles of personal and professional development (PPD) in training and supervision as part of an approach to lifelong learning for all those involved in psychotherapeutic work. Leading European trainers and practitioners draw on their shared background in systemic therapy to articulate a strong theoretical base for PPD. The volume functions not simply as a coherent description of the philosophy and rationale underlying PPD but also as a practice workbook whose chapters contain an array of elegantly crafted exercises, portable across the broad range of disciplines that give life to the social care and mental health fields at the same time as meeting the PPD needs of counsellors and psychotherapists of different theoretical persuasions.

The approaches work through constant attention to PPD as an interpersonal process where thoughts, ideas and emotions need to be nurtured. PPD can involve working at the extremes, and the book provides a secure basis for confronting abuse and violence head on. Each chapter shows how personal and professional development promotes a focus on emotional competence, positive emotion, resilience and ethical practice.

Interacting Selves introduces and develops the concepts and principles of personal and professional development (PPD) in training and supervision as part of an approach to lifelong learning for all psychotherapists undergoing or providing PPD. This pioneering book will appeal to psychotherapy trainees, trainers, practitioners and supervisors in the mental health field and social care professionals.

Review:

The central premise of the book is that continuing professional development (PDD) is about learning. It presents material and application activities that are suitable for trainees, practitioners, supervisors and consultants in maintaining or advancing their knowledge and skills for their psychotherapy work across a number of contexts. The book focuses on personal application with case examples and exercises that invite readers to reflect upon their own ways of working and to contemplate and enhance what they do. The book succeeds in its purpose. The book is practical, engaging, and readable. I recommend it highly! - D. Russell Crane, PhD, Professor of Family Therapy, School of Family Life, Brigham Young University, Provo, UT, USA. Editor Contemporary Family Therapy: An International Journal

Arlene Vetere and Peter Stratton give us a new, enjoyable and useful perspective on an often overlooked dimension in systemic training and practice. Bringing together different voices and expertise, they offer an account of personal and professional development that is both comprehensive and experiential: each author adds to each chapter practical exercises that transform mere reading in a proper learning and personal experience, thus perfectly reflecting the subject and purpose of the text. An essential reading for any trainer and supervisor, both within and outside the systemic field. - Paolo Bertrando, Director, Systemic-Dialogical School of Bergamo, Italy

"Who are you as a professional? Where are you coming from and where do you want to go from here? These are the questions on the horizon of each and every word in this book. Securely rooted in systemic understanding, this book offers a rich variety of ideas on professional and personal development (PPD). This book is a treasure trove for therapists, counsellors, trainers, supervisors and consultants from whatever persuasion." - Prof.dr. Peter Rober, Clinical Psychologist and Family Therapist, KU Leuven, Belgium

"The book presents a rich blend of experiences, concepts and ideas and most important, a good range of exercises that can be used to extend individual or group learning at whatever point the reader accesses these – as trainee, therapist or experienced Supervisor. While written overall from a systemic perspective, the book will also be a valuable resource to professionals from a wide range of psychotherapy perspectives. It is a book that is easy to engage with and understand and this adds to its value and usefulness." - Margaret Gill
