When confronted by risk it is common for us to lose the ability to think. This book offers a broad, realistic and grounded approach to thinking about risk. Risk is looked at from the vantage point of what is risky for the client and also for the therapist. The use of client vignettes and reflective exercises enable the reader to engage directly with their attitudes, feelings and also their responsibilities towards clients exhibiting risky behaviour. The book also embraces issues related to self- harm and risk in the context of mental health. Andrew Reeves has written a compact book that is useful to therapeutic practitioners but also to those teaching others about the nuts and bolts of addressing risk in the counselling room and other helping settings.(Dr Liz Coldridge)
In Working with Risk in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Reeves has provided an engaging, lucid and comprehensive exploration of a ?multidimensional view of risk?, posing critical questions and drawing substantially from clinical material in order to examine the nuances of this crucial concept. An invaluable resource for trainees and seasoned practitioners alike, the book combines a broad range of both practical and philosophical concerns, succinctly addressing a wealth of detail in order to elucidate our understanding.
(Dr Susan Maise Strauss)
As Andrew Reeves points out, the term ?risk? is often used in our profession but is rarely defined with any clarity or depth. He offers useful definitions for the term and works systematically through a broad range of issues that might arise when working with risk in counselling and psychotherapy. As well as exploring the potential harm represented by risk Reeves also acknowledges the significance of positive risk taking within counselling and psychotherapy. Realistic vignettes along with well structured ?pauses for reflection? are used throughout the book to explore the issues that are discussed. This book is well researched and full of useful links and references for further reading. Overall the book instils confidence about this topic by informing the reader of the many facets of risk in counselling and psychotherapy.(David Taylor-Jones)
