Personal Development and Clinical Psychology is a vital
reference text for all those involved in clinical psychology and
related professions. This book offers a comprehensive exploration
of the methods, approaches, theories and issues surrounding
personal development, incorporating a number of different views
from both those practising and training in the field, and includes
service usersâ?? perspectives. The importance of personal
development is considered and chapters are devoted to presenting a
model of the different processes, examining issues of power and
identity, and assessing how training courses currently approach and
encourage personal development and how it might be evaluated. The
book culminates in summarising the major themes, and offers
suggestions for future developments.
