Working with Stress and Tension in Clinical Practice is a practical toolkit that sets out a wide range of approaches for reducing stress and anxiety in clients so that they are mentally prepared for more effective therapy sessions. Combining research, real-life examples and practical advice, the book discusses the potential psychological barriers to therapy that can stand in the way of helping clients and offers concrete solutions to overcome these issues. This toolkit clearly outlines a range of approaches such as mindfulness and meditation techniques that can help clients focus on their therapy and overcome stress and anxiety.

Key features include:

  • Guidance and activities supporting the use of meditation, breathing exercises and visualisation techniques in therapy
  • Ideas that can be used as short introductory activities at the beginning of a therapy session to help patients get the most from the therapist’s time
  • Suggested whole sessions on stress-reduction for those focusing on anxiety itself.

This book is a must-have resource for Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Counsellors, Psychotherapists and any professionals working with clients who wish to help the people they work with get the most from therapy.
