Counselling the person beyond the alcohol problem

by Richard Bryant-Jefferies | 15 August 2001
PAPERBACK
Category: Popular Sociology
Synopsis
At the heart of Richard Bryant-Jefferies' work with problem drinkers is his belief in the power and effectiveness of the person-centred approach to counselling. He suggests that many alcohol problems develop out of, or are connected with, relationship difficulties. He highlights the importance of building a therapeutic relationship with the person, and of engaging with their individuality to encourage sustainable lifestyle change underpinned by personal growth. This practical book shows how such client-focused counselling can support problem drinkers who are seeking to develop and sustain a less alcohol-centred way of life. Demonstrating how the client-counsellor relationship can be harnessed to empower the individual to help themselves, Richard * describes the health risks and effects on family life of alcohol dependency * considers the differences between young and old problem drinkers * analyses the support services available to those seeking change * suggests ways of coping with relapse. Supported by contributions from clients who have undergone counselling for alcohol reliance, this is a comprehensive and positive guide for people working with those who have a problematic relationship with alcohol.
