Nothing destroys trust like sexual betrayal. Beyond broken vows, a woman who discovers that the man she loves has been viewing pornography or having an affair must deal with devastating blows to her self-image and self-worth. She must grapple with the fact that the man she thought she knew has lied and deceived her. She may even bear the brunt of shame and judgment when the people around her find out.
Drawing from her experience both as a marriage and family therapist and a woman who personally experienced the devastation of sexual betrayal, Dr. Sheri Keffer walks women impacted by betrayal through the pain and toward recovery. She explains how the trauma of betrayal affects our minds, bodies, spirits, and sexuality. She offers practical tools for dealing with emotional triggers and helps women understand the realities of sexual addiction. And she shows women how to practice self-care, develop healthy boundaries, protect themselves from abuse or manipulation, and find freedom from the burden of shame and guilt.
Juta's counselling handbook for healthcare professionals will help health professionals apply practical counselling principles to a range of healthcare situations in a South African context. Given the shortage of qualified counsellors and other mental health professionals in South Africa, healthcare workers without specialist knowledge are often called upon to counsel clients. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for many of the issues discussed. However, we hope that this handbook will enable readers to design an appropriate counselling intervention that is helpful to clients and their families.

Booklet - Biblical Perspective, counsel for individuals who struggle with anger, anxiety and fear.
Michael Jacobs is a pioneer in the development of psychodynamic counselling. While his writing is praised for its lucidity in explaining difficult concepts, and it is well illustrated with case examples from his own work, he has rarely said much about his own history as a psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. In this personal account, concerned mainly with both his professional life as a therapist, writer and teacher and with the developments of counselling generally in Britain, in which he has played a major part, Jacobs presents his own past. It is one that surprisingly for so experienced a therapist, started with no formal training, but which has gone on to be an influence on the training of hundreds of counsellors and therapists. Jacobs traces the development of BACP and UKCP and his part in the formation of both organizations, the development of training in counselling in Britain, much of which with regard to psychodynamic counselling was pioneered by him, and finally his writing and teaching career. The book concludes with a critique of the present state of counselling and psychotherapy in Britain today. "A delight to read! Everyone benefits from a lovely memoir like this: students, experienced colleagues, and the author himself. Michael has built a deserved reputation as an outstanding authority and innovator in the counselling field, in practice as well as in training. His restlessness and his challenging nature are still needed as the sense of crisis in depth and relational therapy work intensifies. The account of his experiences, whether entirely fortuitous and haphazard or fuelled by an individuating sense of vocation, will stimulate thought, feeling and a profound questioning of where our field is heading." Professor Andrew Samuels, Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex, UK "This is the moving and revelatory account of the personal and professional evolution of one of Britain's most prominent pioneering counsellors. In telling his own story, Michael Jacobs also illuminates the development of the counselling movement during the past fifty years and younger readers will discover much to inform and surprise them. This deceptively passionate book inspires and challenges on almost every beautifully written page." Brian Thorne, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK; Co-founder, The Norwich Centre for Personal, Professional and Spiritual Development "Michael Jacobs's new memoir kept me wide-awake for most of the night, because I simply could not put this book down! Written with consummate story-telling skills, Jacobs has created an inspiring and enthralling portrait of his remarkable career in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling. A true pioneer of mental health in Great Britain, Jacobs has much to teach us all, and I recommend this new volume most heartily!" Professor Brett Kahr, Institute of Medical Psychology, London, and Senior Clinical Research Fellow in Psychotherapy and Mental Health at the Centre for Child Mental Health, London, UK

This title presents an overview of international perspectives on the issues of narrative career counselling - critically analyses germane questions, such as "How vital and feasible is it to build on life stories in career counselling?"; facilitates an understanding and application of theories, goals, methods and assessments in narrative counselling; focuses on narrative counselling as an emerging theory for facilitating success in life; provides practical guidelines on the practice of narrative counselling in different contexts; examines the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of hermeneutic-narrative, postmodern and constructivist approaches to career counselling; presents ideas on how to engage clients actively; suggests ways of using life-story counselling to produce new identities for career practice.
The supervision of inexperienced counsellors and other helping professionals should be regarded as an integral, rather than a peripheral, part of their initial and ongoing training. Furthermore, supervision can play an important role in the development and maintenance of professional competence, and in providing support for the experienced practitioner who wishes to provide the highest quality of care for clients. Training of registered counsellors in South Africa presents unique challenges to supervisors. Supervisors and supervisees need supportive information to stay informed about policy changes, trends and research - from the community within South Africa and internationally - that influence and nature and productivity of the counsellor process. This publication answers this need by focusing on the fundamentals of supervision and its effective utilisation. The chapters cover a variety of topics, from accessible theory on the role and functions of the supervisor and the development stages of the supervisee to eminently practical chapters on report writing and preventing counsellor burnout. Suggestions on the use of metaphor and story in counselling add depth, while the many sample case studies bring focus and immediacy to the text.
