  • Updated with the latest research and includes a detailed list of useful websites for relevant charities and companies.
  • Internationalisation of clients’ problems, scenarios, and cultural contexts to include poignant and relevant examples and cases, particularly from South Africa and the UK.
  • Streamlined structure which still fully reflects and follows Egan’s practical three stage model but also includes a new Part IV offering an extensive range of helping exercises for students to undertake in pairs and groups.
  • Egan’s practical three-stage model clearly outlines the nature and goals of effective helping and the values which drive it.
  • Strong focus on “positive psychology” which includes guidance on how to turn problems into opportunities, an emphasis on hope and optimism, and a self-healing approach to client-helper collaboration.
  • Emphasises the collaborative nature of the client-helper relationship, including vivid examples that show helping skills in action in a vast array of possible relationships and settings.
