The nature, consequences and applications of social support are focused on in this volume which distils theoretical and empirical literature and applies it to the work of counsellors and other mental health professionals.This practice-orientated text provides counsellors with concrete procedures while also giving them a conceptual background that can contribute to informed, flexible practice. The author begins with an overview of social support theory and research and then considers the manner in which the major trends and findings can be applied to various stages and components of counselling practice: screening and intake, assessment, interventions with individuals, group interventions, system-focused interventions, follow-up and primary prevention.
