Shop on Barnes & Noble


The field of psychodynamic counselling has developed from the psychoanalytic tradition inaugurated by Freud. At its core is a belief in the role of the unconscious in the development of conflict and disturbance, which may be resolved through the careful unfolding of the therapeutic relationship via the transference//counter-transference dynamic and within a defined setting.By integrating theory and context, Brendan Mc Loughlin explores the opportunities for counsellors to develop their own practice of psychodynamic counselling. He encourages readers to look carefully at the way they work and to think about strategies to improve their skills in a specialized form of relating.Containing 30 sections organized into five categories, this book examines areas crucial to the psychodynamic approach, including internal and external settings, working with issues around boundaries, and understanding and working with transference and counter-transference.Addressed primarily to counsellors who are about to begin work with clients, Developing Psychodynamic Counselling will also be of interest to established counsellors and psychotherapists, counselling and clinical psychologists, social workers and nurses.
