`This book...steps outside the mainstream and in so doing offers us nuggets of informed practice wisdom... It has an excellent chapter on non-verbal communication that should be essential reading for all staff as it reminds us of the process as well as the spoken word. Another strength is the use of practical examples that can be used for training as well as personal development work including supervision'.---Martin Calder, Calder Training and Consultancy, UK `This practical and very readabel guide will be of great use to all those working with reluctant clients in health and social care.
