Collaborative Helping Skills is a key text for courses in the helping professions that will help students learn the basic skills of helping. The course is a requirement for any student in counselling, psychotherapy or social work as it prepares students for the work they will be doing with clients. This book has a focus on developing skills that are collaborative by involving the client in the helping process/solution and it has an integrated focus on multicultural skills and social justice. The book first outlines the basic process of counselling and counsellor self-care, then goes into conversation and counselling, receiving, attending, listening, positive regard, empathy and connection. The author then moves onto the basics of developing a relationship with the client as well as relating to the experience. Finally, it takes a look at the treatment-planning stage via a shared experience by involving the client in the process. Every chapter contains the following pedagogy: - case study - sample dialogue - chapter objectives - boxed capsules to highlight key skills - reflections on practice - experiential exercises - questions for reflection - video demonstrations.
