Book Description

This ebook provides a conceptual and applied practice foundation for building responsive relationships with clients in counselling. It has been designed to disrupt how counsellors often think about the initial phases of the counselling process and the purpose, and use of, counselling microskills and techniques. We also propose reconsideration of how counsellor educators position and teach counselling skills in support of culturally responsive, client-centred, and socially just counselling. It offers a variety of experiential learning activities, commentaries, and videos on different topics, and it guides readers through applied practice skills learning processes. Our goal is to equip you with the competencies (e.g., attitudes, knowledge, skills) that will enable you to optimize the growth-fostering potential of the client–counsellor relationship, to appreciate the interplay of client and counsellor cultural identities and social locations on the contextualized challenges that clients face, to embrace and support their self- and culturally-defined preferred futures, and to nurture collaboration with clients at all points in the counselling process.
