The term "primary care counseling" denotes the context of primary care within which psychological therapies take place and encompasses practitioners from a wide variety of therapeutic traditions. The emphasis throughout Training and Training Standards is on thorough preparation of the new counselor/therapist to meet the counseling standards required in primary care practice.

The surge of interest in psychotherapies in private practice settings makes this book timely and important. The book acts as a suggested syllabus for training counselors and psychotherapists but also deals with much wider issues. Chapters cover practitioner issues--both student and professional--management issues, and the provision of supervision and mentoring for the new counselor as well as planning ongoing professional development. Chapters dealing with the history of the remarkable rise in these services help set the context of the rapid development of primary care counseling.

Training and Training Standards will be of value to students, course providers, counseling practice managers, supervisors as well as those who commission services and private practice doctors.
