'A very practical text that provides professionals new to this arena with a good introduction to what they can expect to encounter in online work. The book contains numerous thought-provoking examples and exercises for those contemplating work in virtual arenas' - Terry Hanley, Lecturer in Counselling, University of Manchester. 'It's tempting to think that face-to-face experience translates straightforwardly to online work. But it doesn't. Jane Evans shows how many different aspects there are to counselling on-line! My advice would be, don't attempt it until you have worked through this book' - Professor Michael Jacobs, author of "Psychodynamic Counselling in Action". Counsellors - and other professionals who provide emotional support and guidance - are increasingly working online. The difference between online and face-to-face interaction with clients is vast and practitioners need to equip themselves with specialist knowledge and skills to ensure that they are being effective. "Online Counselling and Guidance Skills" is the first book to deal with the practicalities of this mode of working. It looks at how practitioners need to adapt their basic counselling skills to the online environment and guides them through the process of setting up, defining and maintaining a working relationship with a client within professional, ethical and legal boundaries. Case studies and extracts from online sessions show how the skills are put into practice, while practical exercises and points for further consideration help readers to develop their own knowledge and skills. Until now, books and articles have generally focused on the therapeutic work done by counsellors online. However, this book addresses people who use counselling skills in a wide range of contexts; including counselling, education, mental health, social care and careers guidance.
'An invaluable resource book for anyone (counsellors, EAP providers and companies) involved in workplace counselling. Helpful and informative, it is set to become a classic text in its field' - Counselling and Psychotherapy, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy 'Accessible and meaningful...a valuable contribution to the growing body of literature on counselling in specific contexts, and Michael Carroll is to be congratulated for his skill in pulling together so many strands that influence the workplace counsellor's role' - Human Resource Management Journal Hand-in-hand with the increase in numbers of organizations offering counselling for their employees comes a growing demand for counsellors who are skilled not only in helping the individual but also in managing the counselling process within a workplace setting. This practical book provides core guidance on how to operate best in an employee-counsellor role and how to tackle the issues such a role raises.Michael Carroll presents a generic, integrative model of employee counselling which shows readers how to organize, administer and manage the counselling process, from assessment to termination, within an organizational setting. In so doing, he discusses the tasks and responsibilities of employee counsellors, covering such vital areas as: how to contract with organizations; the impact of the organization on the counselling process; evaluation; ethical dilemmas; loyalty clashes; and training and supervision.
This text is a short yet complete course on nonlinear dynamics of deterministic systems. Conceived as a modular set of 15 concise lectures it reflects the many years of teaching experience by the authors. The lectures treat in turn the fundamental aspects of the theory of dynamical systems, aspects of stability and bifurcations, the theory of deterministic chaos and attractor dimensions, as well as the elements of the theory of Poincare recurrences.Particular attention is paid to the analysis of the generation of periodic, quasiperiodic and chaotic self-sustained oscillations and to the issue of synchronization in such systems.
This book is aimed at graduate students and non-specialist researchers with a background in physics, applied mathematics and engineering wishing to enter this exciting field of research.
