About this DVD
Loss is at the very heart of our lives and it can be profoundly painful. The way in which we react or respond to the pain of our losses can have important implications for ourselves and our lives.
This DVD represents a research-informed video case study of Kate who is trying to cope with four major experiences of bereavement and loss. It contains an emotionally powerful counselling session in which the counselling psychologist Anthony Crouch helps Kate to begin to tolerate her pain, develop a spark of hope for the future and identify key therapeutic goals.
In the DVD Anthony also provides four commentaries that are informed by the very latest research: commentaries on both the session and the subsequent review together with an introduction to both loss and bereavement and the factors that contribute to therapeutic change. In this latter commentary Anthony examines how the latest research on therapeutic factors challenges the traditional medical model of treatment-focused change.
This DVD goes to the very heart of the counselling experience and demonstrates how research-informed counselling can support a client to bear the pain of loss and achieve profound therapeutic change. It will, therefore, engage a wide range of practitioners and students, not only in the field of counselling and psychotherapy, but also in the broader health and social care sector. In addition to the DVD an online bibliography can be accessed and downloaded on our website.
