At the centre of any caring role is listening attentively to the concerns, narratives and needs of others. But to develop the skills of listening, learning, caring and counselling (LLCC) you need support and training. Written by an experienced and awarded therapist, Listening, Learning, Caring and Counselling is an authoritative, comprehensive guide full of ideas and techniques designed to fill that role. The main emphasis of this highly accessible reference work is on how health and related professionals can assist clients as they work through the issues they commonly present with — such as depression, relationship issues, addiction and grief. Numerous therapies and their related techniques are described and synthesized into the LLCC approach, while case studies, skills and tips for everyday practice make it a practical and user-friendly resource. Listening, Learning, Caring and Counselling is essential reading for counsellors, support workers, case workers, medical practitioners, health professionals — from physiotherapists, pharmacists, doctors, dentists and their assistants to nutritionists and naturopaths — serious life coaches and emergency workers, as well as those in the fields of human resources.

Intuition is something most people would have experienced at one time or another; it’s that gut-feeling or ‘sixth sense’. It’s instinctive by nature, independent of rational analysis or deductive thinking. But can we actively develop our intuition and learn how to better utilise it? Author Dr Cate Howell believes we can, and sets about to empower us to use intuition in everyday life. Intuition is divided into three parts. In the first, she explores the nature of intuition from different perspectives, including philosophy and psychology, religion and spirituality. She also looks at the use of intuition in decision-making in the fields of business, health and teaching. The second part of the book is more practical and considers types of intuition, how to develop your intuition and then use it in everyday life with a practical seven-step plan. Steps explored for developing intuition include meditation, mindfulness, creativity, kindness and service. The final part of the book looks at some issues related to intuition, such as dreams and synchronicity, and how the development of one’s intuition often seems to correlate with an increased sense of peace, purpose and joy in life. ‘Intuition is a vital part of life and practice and now we have a book that will help us to develop this essential skill.’ Prof Ian Wilson, Associate Dean, Graduate School of Medicine, University of Wollongong

Over the years, Dr Cate Howell OAM, CSM, PhD (Med.) has worked with many clients who wished to lose weight. She’s seen them utilise various “diets” and lifestyle changes, work with dieticians, coaches and personal trainers, and undergo bariatric surgery, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy. During this time, a common issue found that gets in the way of attaining the desired goals, is ‘emotional eating’ (EE). In the ‘Emotional Eating: Learn to be free (EE-Free)’ program, readers begin by answering 10 of the common questions about EE, and then focus on different approaches and strategies that can help you find freedom from EE. It is important to remember that the title of this program includes ‘learn to be free’: as with learning any new activity (such as a sport or foreign language) or way of being, overcoming EE involves learning new ways of managing thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This involves effort and practice. As a result, there are practical ideas to try, and reflections and exercises to undertake. The program will also provide a supportive voice and encouragement as you learn more about yourself, and it will highlight additional resources for you to tap into. This book and program is about living well, and improving your health and wellbeing so that you can find freedom from EE. So, let’s begin!

The main aim of this practical Handbook is to strengthen counselling and communication skills of skilled attendants (SAs) and other health providers, helping them to effectively discuss with women, families and communities the key issues surrounding pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, postnatal and post-abortion care. The MNH Counselling Handbook is chiefly designed to be used by groups of SAs with the help of a facilitator. It can also be used by individual SAs who can get together with colleagues for discussions and activities where needed. It relies on a self-directed learning approach, allowing SAs to work at their own pace, drawing on their past counselling experience. The way it is used will be determined by each country s context, and the SAs preference. The MNH Counselling Handbook is divided into three main sections. Part 1 is an introduction which describes the aims and objectives and the general layout of the Handbook. Part 2 describes the counselling process and outlines the six key steps to effective counselling. It explores the counselling context and factors that influence this context including the socio-economic, gender, and cultural environment. A series of guiding principles is introduced and specific counselling skills are outlined. Part 3 focuses on different maternal and newborn health topics, including general care in the home during pregnancy; birth and emergency planning; danger signs in pregnancy; post-abortion care; support during labour; postnatal care of the mother and newborn; family planning counselling; breastfeeding; women with HIV/AIDS; death and bereavement; women and violence; linking with the community. Each Session contains specific aims and objectives, clearly outlining the skills that will be developed and corresponding learning outcomes. Practical activities have been designed to encourage reflection, provoke discussions, build skills and ensure the local relevance of information. There is a review at the end of each session to ensure the SAs have understood the key points before they progress to subsequent sessions.

This new edited volume seeks to meet the growing need for ways to support people with dementia across the whole course and trajectory of dementia care, with a wide scope of expertise. The book addresses how practitioners and carers can apply psychosocial interventions - which take into consideration the individual, social and environmental aspects of a person's life - across this trajectory, right from the earliest stages through to practice in care home settings. Divided into four sections, each covers a different context in which people with dementia can be supported: at home; in community settings; family and carer support; and those in care homes and hospitals. In addition, there is a distinct focus throughout on evidence-based practice and its implementation in real-world settings. This book is essential reading for any practitioner and caregiver wanting to support people with dementia.
