EXISTENTIAL THERAPIES MICK COOPER PDF

With welcome clarity and sanity, Mick Cooper efficiently lays out the concepts, techniques and directions adopted by several key figures in the broad field of existentially informed psychotherapy. In that sense, this publication provides a missing link. One merit of the book is its systematic structure. As extensive, and in part as heterogeneous as existential philosophy and therapy also maybe, Mick Cooper had nevertheless been able to build convincing clusters with, on the one hand, an enormous understanding of details and, on the other, a far-sightedness that, like a map, provides orientation in the diversity of existential therapy. The author, Mick Cooper loves his subject, it fascinates and enthrals him, and we get to experience some of that, even though the book is "academic". Overall I rate the book highly.

What does it mean to practice therapy in an existential way? What are the different existential approaches? What are their strengths and limitations? Focusing on practical, face-to-face work with clients, the book introduces students to six existential therapies, highlighting areas of commonality and difference, and discusses key figures and their contributions, including Yalom, van Deurzen, Spinelli, Frankl and Laing. It outlines the critical perspectives and key debates, and presents implications for practice, reflection and further reading.

It continues to set down the major historic and contemporary and debates, and to provide and invaluable map of the territory. As well as providing historical context and an overview of the existential approach and how it can be applied to therapy, this second edition expertly weaves in newer developments in the field including the existential-phenomenological approach, and time-limited existential therapy. Existential therapies are also brought to life with a case study that runs the whole way through the book.

Overall, a superb introduction and an important contribution to the field. Mick Cooper respectfully examines the differences and similarities of the various major approaches to existential therapy. This should be required reading for all student and scholars in existential psychology. The second edition brings a good adjustment to the actual situation with a remaining dominance of the British and English language perspective.

Lively and practical book with reflected literature access — a perfect introduction, a perfect refresher!

School counselling The workshop is appropriate for training and practising counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling psychologists and other mental health professionals. Existential therapy is a diverse, vibrant, and wonderfully rich tapestry of understandings and methods that has the potential to make a valuable contribution to the work of any counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist. It is one of the oldest forms of therapy, yet still one of the most innovative and radical. Existential therapy is orientated around the development of a deep relational bond with the client, which allows the client to explore the most fundamental aspects of their existence. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: Understand the core principles of existential philosophy Understand the principal aims and forms of existential counselling and psychotherapy Apply existential understanding of freedom and choice to their therapeutic practice Apply existential understanding of limitations to their therapeutic practice Apply existential understandings of meaning and purpose to their therapeutic practice Session 1: Introduction to existential philosophy and therapy Session 2: Working with freedom and choice Session 3: Facing the limitations of existence Session 4: Helping clients find meaning and purpose in life Format This workshop is typically delivered as a one day event. However, a more extended version of this course can be delivered over two to five days. The workshop combines self-development exercises, theoretical input, practical exercises, and small and large group discussion.
