This book breaks new ground for counsellors working with clients in times of uncertainty and change. It describes the counsellor's work from a constructivist perspective and introduces valuable counselling tools to use in planning and coping with unpredictable events in worklife and in social life. The book suggests how counsellors can help clients construct meaningful futures and actions and how they can move toward the making of more resilient selves.
The book gives counsellors many suggestions about how they can work directly with the client's life-experience to move toward useful and personally meaningful solutions. The book is written in an inspiring style and stresses how counsellors and clients can cooperate to find innovative ways to navigate difficult life situations.
The author provides readers various clues on how to unlock the 'iron cage' of positivist thinking and how to step out into the fresh air of choice, responsibility, action, meaning, empowerment and authentically co-operative relationships in counselling. Readers are brought into contact with 'cultural sensibility' rather than individualistic, psychological theory as a guide to good counselling.
