<< Previous in All Next in All >>

Price: $29.95

An Integrative Approach to Therapy and Supervision presents an innovative and flexible model for therapy and supervision practice.

The model draws on ideas from the psychological traditions of Transactional Analysis, Gestalt theory and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to develop an integrated approach to working with clients and to developing a supervisor-supervisee relationship that can be adapted to suit the needs of individual personalities and situations. The authors lay out the theory underlying the model, how it relates to existing models of supervision, and demonstrate how the model works in practice using case material to illustrate the range of approaches that can be applied in a given scenario.

This book is essential reading for both new and experienced practitioners, as well as those responsible for training therapists, counsellors and supervisors.

Dr Mary Harris on the FIT Model: An Integrative Approach to Therapy and Supervision

16 February 2011

"Therapists are increasingly required to learn and work using an approach which is unfamiliar to them; this is the case for many therapists seeking employment within the NHS, where CBT is often the treatment of choice. The FIT approach meets the current need to incorporate additional or new approaches within their work, and to utilise an integrative approach which is flexible yet clear and consistent, rather than confusing to the client."
