It has long been understood that engendering 'hope' is at the heart of the very aims and motivations of counselling, but until now, little attempt has been made to actually explain how and why it may be fostered. Keeping theory firmly grounded in real-life practice, coupled with insights and tools for developing practitioner research and reflexivity, this practical book explores the nature of hope and how it can be defined as a central dimension of healing and personal growth. Key content includes: - Understanding the nature of hope and how it is conceptualised from different theoretical perspectives. - Identifying common psychotherapeutic practices which engender hope and how they translate into effective practice - The role of the counsellor and how they are intricately involved in the process - How to manage expectations and work effectively with clients suffering with severe and enduring psychological challenges - Hope measures and how to be a research informed practitioner. Packed full of case examples, practical exercise and points for reflection, this book will prove essential reading for any training or practising health care professional looking to understand hope in the process of change.
