An Introduction to Workplace Counselling is a highly accessible and practical guide to counselling and the particular demands of the workplace setting. It covers basic practice issues central to all therapeutic work, including the relationship between theory and practice; client and practice management; skills and process; and difference issues. It also explores specific workplace issues including organizational culture; the role of counselling at work; and interventions.
