Brilliant, enlightening, practical. A gem of a book.

Michael Jacobs’s textbook for students and practitioners of psychodynamic therapy became a huge success upon its initial publication, and it remains the gold standard to this day. Written with welcome clarity, deep compassion, and with both a clinical and a practical intelligence, Jacobs will be the perfect guide for trainees in this increasingly important field of endeavor.
Psychodynamic Counselling in Action is a good book to introduce students to the practice of psychodynamic counselling. With vignettes extracted from his own clinical work, Michael Jacobs links theory to practice in a clear and accessible way. As well as further reading, the end of each chapter provides useful experiential exercises to promote further thinking and solidify learning.
This is a very well-presented of the foundations and some more contemporary developments in psychodynamic counselling which will be useful for counselling trainees and qualified practitioners as well.
