Über den Autor
Windy Dryden is Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies as well as being the Programme Co-ordinator of the MSc in Rational-Emotive and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Dr Andrew Reeves has worked as a counsellor and supervisor in various setting for over twenty years. Originally qualified as a social worker, he specialised in child protection and adult mental health before moving to working full-time as a counsellor at the University of Liverpool. Following the death by suicide of one of his clients early in his career, he undertook extensive research into ways in which counsellors and psychotherapists work with suicidal clients and he has written extensively about this since. His recent book with SAGE, Counselling Suicidal Clients (2010) has quickly become a popular title, as has Key Issues for Counselling in Action: Second Edition, which he co-edited with Prof Windy Dryden. His award-winning training DVD, Tight Ropes and Safety Nets: Counselling Suicidal Clients (with Jon Shears and Sue Wheeler) is now being used by many therapy training programmes throughout the UK. His new book, An Introduction to Counselling and Psychotherapy: From Theory to Practice (2012) has several aims: to help provide prospective students of counselling and psychotherapy with information to support their training decisions; to help integrate theory into their early steps in working with clients on a practice placement; and to help bridge the move from qualification into practice as a therapist. He has other new projects in the pipeline, including editing the new series, Essential Issues for Counselling and Psychotherapy in which he will be writing the new title, Working with Risk in Counselling and Psychotherapy, as well as working with Windy Dryden on the sixth edition of the bestselling SAGE text, The Handbook of Individual Therapy.
