Product description

Review

In Counselling and Psychotherapy with Older People in Care Felicity Chapman sets out to excite and equip psychotherapists across disciplines to create spaces of hope and re-invigoration for ageing populations in care. By sharing stories of her psychotherapeutic work with seniors such as Harold we are invited into the complexities and challenges of the work as well as being introduced to evidence based practice and practice based evidence. The detailed account of relevant psychological approaches offers a breadth of perspective. The illuminating personal stories of the elderly and the meticulous unpacking of work within residential care systems are written with rigor, elegance and humor and makes for compelling reading. Her book is a must-read guide! -- Shona Russell, Mental health social worker, Co-Director Narrative Practices Adelaide Felicity Chapman's 'out of the box' approach to psychotherapeutic work with older adults is a refreshing and much needed text which infuses a strong interest in the lived narrative. This area of health care has not received the attention, nor the research, that it deserves. This book provides clinicians with a manual filled with real life accounts that are honest and heart-warming. Readers are led on a journey of belief that older people in care still have much to teach and share and deserve to be provided with opportunities to work through a variety of psychological issues. It is to be commended to anyone who cares about the well-being of older adults. -- Julianne Whyte, OAM, CEO and Founder of the Amaranth Foundation --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
