Personal Reflections on Counseling Book Review:

“Gerald Corey’s Reflections is an absolute delight! Each chapter is packed with nuggets of wisdom he has gained over the decades. What makes the book particularly engaging is that it invites us into Corey’s inner world and we feel as though we are reading a series of letters from a friend. This book could serve as an excellent supplemental reading in an introductory course or as a useful resource for advanced students as they navigate the complexities of graduate school and look ahead to their careers.” —Barbara Herlihy, PhD, University of Texas at San Antonio “In this inspirational book, Gerald Corey shares his most heartfelt personal reflections and lessons learned as he describes his journey over a 60-year counseling career. He is honest, self-disclosing, humble, and insightful in this compendium that encourages readers to embrace their vision and entertain their dreams. This is a must-read gem that provides an opportunity for counseling students and young professionals to learn from the master.” —Robert Haynes, PhD, Psychologist and author, Borderline Productions In an easy-to-read, question-and-answer format, Dr. Corey provides sage insight on a broad range of topics concerning professional issues, career development, the counseling process, and work-life balance. Responding to an array of questions often asked by students over the years, he uses candid personal examples to highlight key lessons and engage readers in an active process of personal and professional self-reflection on their own journeys. Topical question themes include creating your professional path, mentoring and being a mentee, surviving graduate school, benefiting from personal therapy, focusing on self-care and wellness, becoming an ethical counselor, managing value conflicts in counseling, using self-disclosure therapeutically, dealing with difficult clients, getting the most out of supervision, and becoming a writer. In each chapter, reflection questions encourage readers to consider their own views and experiences related to the questions raised, and recommended readings provide suggestions for further information.

Touch in the Helping Professions Book Review:

Touch may well be one of the least understood or talked about subjects in the helping professions. A discussion on the importance and ethics of positive, caring, and appropriate touch in professions such as teaching, nursing and counselling is long overdue. Touch in the Helping Professions delivers just that, weaving together scholarly evidence, research and clinical practice from a wide range of perspectives encompassing philosophy, theology, psychology, and anthropology to challenge assumptions about the role of touch in the helping professions. The contributors to the volume focus not only on the overarching roles of gender, age, culture and life experience, but go beyond to encompass canine-assisted therapy, touch deprivation, sacred objects, as well as key ethical considerations. The prevailing lack of dialogue, due to fear of contravening ethical boundaries, has stood in the way of an open and responsible discussion on the use of touch in therapy. Touch in the Helping Professions is a welcome and much needed contribution to the field—a window onto a fundamental need. This book is published in English. - Cet ouvrage offre un ensemble de données probantes et de résultats cliniques à l’appui du toucher dans le développement physique et émotionnel. Il est structuré selon trois axes : la théorie sur le toucher; la pratique du toucher dans un contexte de thérapie, et les questions éthiques. Il aborde la question du rôle du genre, de l’âge, de la culture et de l’expérience de vie, des sujets comme la zoothérapie, la privation sensorielle, des objets sacrés, et des considérations d’ordre éthique. Les approches variées – philosophie, théologie, psychologie, anthropologie – remettent en question les présuppositions, offrent un contexte historico-culturelprofessionnel, et font appel à des données primaires. Les collaborateurs soutiennent que le toucher sain et non sexuel n’est pas suffisamment enseigné dans le cadre de la formation professionnelle. Cette absence de dialogue – engendrée par la crainte de dépasser des bornes éthiques, fait en sorte qu’une discussion ouverte et responsable sur l’utilisation du toucher dans un cadre thérapeutique ne peut avoir lieu, alors même qu’elle contribuerait aux balises théoriques de notre compréhension de cet enjeu fondamental. Ce livre est publié en anglais.
