This book is a comprehensive, easy-to-read introduction to personal counselling, written for student counsellors and new counsellors, and those who train/supervise them. The book contains many practical examples of the use of counselling micro-skills, includes client statements for use by trainers in teaching particular skills, explores the processes of change, and describes an integrative counselling process which enables counsellors to make informed choices about which skills to use at particular stages of the counselling process. Each chapter has a learning summary and a list of suggested further reading including reference to relevant research. Each of the skills chapters includes demonstration examples of suitable client statements and counsellor responses, followed by practice examples and student assignment examples.

ICSSPE's 5th Edition of the Directory of Sport Science includes a CD-ROM (English and Chinese), as well as a feature "A Journey Through Time - The Changing Face of ICSSPE", a look back at the history of the organisation

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
