"What is Disability?" and "Why am I disabled?" asked Joe, the seven year old boy, born with cerebral palsy... Although disability is of concern to us all, very little attention has been paid to the felt experience of the disabled person and the ways in which psychotherapy might be constructively utilised. Disability, Counselling and Psychotherapy directly addresses this gap and, taking a life-span perspective and a psychoanalytic approach, actively explores the challenges and opportunities of disability to therapy, the caring professions and society more widely. Shula Wilson introduces a model aimed at achieving autonomy that is based on the significance of the primary mother-baby relationship and the awareness of human mortality. In doing so she offers a new way of relating to disabled people and working through unanswerable questions such as those raised by Joe, above. She also challenges attitudes and reactions to controversial issues such as sex, death and the mystery behind altering body image, and brings to the surface the desires, hopes and frustrations of disabled people living in an environment ridden with fears and prejudices. With its lively case discussion and clear theoretical base, Disability, Counselling and Psychotherapy is a vital resource for all practising professionals and trainees.

`This is an excellent book. It builds well on Peter Jenkins' admirable earlier contribution to our knowledge of the many legal matters that are of vital concern to counsellors (Counselling, Psychotherapy and the Law, SAGE 1997) It is mY intention, as a counsellor and lecturer to make Peter Jenkins' new book required reading for all our students. Indeed I would go as far to say that all counsellors, not matter how experienced they consider themselves, should consider this book as essential reading. As the advert says, "don't leave home without one!" - Norman Claringbull, Counselling at Work `This is good value for trainees and experienced practitioners alike, provoking reflection and providing a useful reference source' - Sally Scott, Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal Counsellors and psychotherapists are increasingly seeing the impact of legal issues on their practice and yet many feel under-prepared for the challenges they have to face. Legal Issues in Counselling & Psychotherapy is a much-needed source of advice and reference which examines the rapidly growing range of situations in which therapists find themselves in contact with the law - in their everyday practice, in specialist work, or when facing a legal case against them. The first part covers the current legal context of therapeutic work including confidentiality, contracts, data protection and court reports. Chapters include: defining work by leading writers from the therapeutic and legal worlds, as well as an illuminating account by a client who brought a successful case against her therapist. Some areas of therapeutic work are particularly circumscribed by legal issues and the second part examines the specific implications for therapists in relation to: - working with survivors of sexual abuse -working in legal settings -false memory -the Human Rights Act. Looking to the future, the book also examines the implications of professional regulation for all counsellors and psychotherapists. The need for counsellors and psychotherapists to be well informed about the law is rapidly growing. Legal Issues in Counselling & Psychotherapy therefore provides access to essential information which will be of great value to trainees, practitioners and supervisors.

Is birth trauma a fiction? Should one believe in `false memories'? · Clinical issues: Is therapy effective? Is `the relationship' central to success? Do therapists pathologize their clients? Are boundaries necessary? · Professional issues: Do trainees need therapy? Is professionalization of the field desirable? Are counselling and psychotherapy really distinguishable? · Social issues: Can therapy be proven necessary? Does therapy benefit individuals or contribute to social control?

Providing a common voice for a diverse group of students and professionals, Canadian Counselling and Counselling Psychology in the 21st Century will be of interest to counsellor educators, faculty in counsellor and counselling psychology training programs, and counsellors interested in advancing their understanding of the current state of the field.
