Essential Motivational Skills for Therapists:
How to work with unmotivated clients

Clients often find change very difficult – whether its due to being stuck in repetitive cycles, low self-worth or simply fear of the unknown. This book by Paul Grantham, one of the UK’s most inspirational tutors on motivation, is a collection of ideas, tips and techniques based on decades of his practice experience put together for immediate use by counsellors and psychotherapists. In many ways - it is not just a book in the traditional sense. It’s a Practical Learning Programme that will enable you to use your new skills with your clients straightaway. Take this book with you to work and do the exercises straight after seeing a particularly unmotivated client, it will help you to find a way forward with them. Write in the book, answer questions, ask your own, use it as a practical tool and it will help you to be more effective in your everyday work (RRP £10.57).

Work with the Author: Paul Grantham leads a BPS Approved Certificate on Motivational Interviewing – online and at BPS, London. Learn more…

Practical Applications of Solution Focused Therapy: Worksheets to Use with Clients

Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) has a strong research and practice background that is currently being practised in a wide range of settings – from child and family work, through severe and enduring mental health, changing health behaviours and palliative care. Many practitioners however often feel they lack guidance on how to apply solution focused principles in ways that are creative or alternatively would like more structure in how to apply the ideas and principles. This book is designed to provide that. It contains 10 exercises in worksheet format that practitioners can use in a variety of settings. It is not designed to replace training in Solution Focused Therapy. It is however designed to facilitate its practice (RRP £7.95).

Third Wave CBT Therapies - Literature Review 2015

The range of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT) that have been developed and researched, can be seen to represent the influence of current theoretical thinking at the time and context within which they each developed. Each therapy therefore represents a progression of knowledge throughout previous decades. As such, psychological therapies are often grouped into various categories or ‘waves’, to reflect the similarities (and differences) they have with other psychological therapies. This detailed report provides you with excellent overview of the therapies that have been grouped together as Third Wave CBT.

Get Your Life Back: The Most Effective Therapies For A Better You (Read a Free Chapter here)
by Fiona Kennedy (Author), David Pearson (Author)

Most of us have some behaviours which are not fully under our control but when those start interfering with our lives and with who we want to be, we need this book. When we turn away from opportunity and excitement in case it makes us anxious, we lose the joy in our lives and can experience misery and depression as well as, oddly, even more anxiety.
Get Your Life Back helps you to identify what is really important to you and to notice the ways in which you behave which interfere with reaching your goals and following valued directions. It shows how to understand your own behaviour with compassion, without judgement, and how to both accept and change unhelpful or damaging ways of acting. You will learn new skills to manage emotion and endure discomfort as you journey towards mindful self-control.
Uniquely, this book presents a blend of evidence-based treatments (CBT, ACT, DBT, compassion and mindfulness) giving you the best and most effective therapies for a better you.
