For Counsellors and other helpers.
"This book is a very welcome addition to the library of any student or teacher of counselling, helping, or human relations. The authors' opening remarks remind the Western world of the ancient wisdom of the East - that 'counselling is a gently rolling vehicle that provides assistance, step by step, for the person to follow their unique path'. The book's title, 'Roadworthy skills', encapsulates this traveller image very well. Kranz and Sanders are well equipped to assist both students and teachers through their unique journey. They have spent most of their lives devoted to counselling and counselling skills training, and travelled with many others along the way. Indeed they have played a significant part in my own journey, generously sharing much of their wisdom, insight and expertise. The authors' description of their work as a 'compendium' is appropriate since they give one of the most detailed and complete descriptions of helping skills available in the field today. Kranz and Sanders walk you through the helping process from beginning to end in a substantial way. They give examples, case studies and exercises to help the reader integrate the information in the book. Important areas are tackled with relative ease. These include: how to assess and build on counsellor qualities; new ways to improve observation and listening skills; innovative ways to deepen empathy and achieve commitment to a clear and chosen goal for change; practical ways to help people achieve goals, including assertiveness skills training, decision making and action planning."
