Ciarrochi, Joseph; Said, Terri; Deane, Frank P. – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
Decades of research have generally shown that being more rigid is associated with poorer mental health. We investigated whether all aspects of what has been termed "rigidity" are harmful. In particular, we hypothesized that the desire for simple structure (DSS) will not be associated with poor mental health, and in some cases might be associated…

Cramer, Duncan – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
This study tested whether each of the four main aspects of rational thinking decreased expected relationship dissatisfaction when imagining having a serious disagreement with either a romantic partner or closest friend.

Bitsika, Vicki – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
The number of students who are labeled as having some form of behavioural disorder which requires specialized assistance in the regular school setting is growing. Current approaches to working with these students are often based on the standardized application of treatments designed to modify general symptoms rather than specific behaviours. It is…

Bekerman, Zvi; Tatar, Moshe – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
The rhetorical/discursive turn, in its multiple disciplinary masks, is here to stay. Even psychology is giving in to its charm. The Sophists can smile again, the agora is back, and the solipsistic self is in retreat. Dialogical, narrative, and cultural psychologies, as well as the counselling profession, triumph the return of the social, the…

Peters, Michael A. – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
Michel Foucault was drawn late in life to study the "arts of the self" in Greco-Roman culture as a basis, following Nietzsche, for what he called an "aesthetics of existence." By this, he meant a set of creative and experimental processes and techniques by which an individual turns him- or herself into a work of art. For Nietzsche, it was above…

Usher, Robin; Edwards, Richard G. – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
This article explores the ways in which framings drawn from post-structuralism can help to inform the understanding of guidance practices. In particular, it draws upon the later work of Foucault and Actor-Network Theory to question the centrality of the humanistic subject predominant within discourses of contemporary guidance and raise issues of…

Lock, Andrew; Epston, David; Maisel, Richard; de Faria, Natasha – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
Foucault's analysis of unseen power as it operates in discourses that construct "practices of discipline" and "technologies of the self" has been a central conceptual resource in the development of narrative therapy. Narrative therapists take the view that ?unseen aspects of power work to construct both how a person understands their situation,…

Sinclair, Stacey L.; Monk, Gerald – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
This article represents a poststructuralist critique and review of the role of empathy in the therapeutic relationship. Incorporating Foucauldian contributions, we seek to expand upon the largely liberal-humanistic descriptions about the nature of empathy, which in our view fail to acknowledge fully the impact of culture in the therapy arena. In…

Besley, A.C. (Tina) – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
When people come to counselling they do so because they identify some issue or problem in their life with which they want help. In the process they reveal, to a greater or lesser extent, various aspects of themselves in a form of confession of the self. Thus, the counselling relationship, although a private one, has performative aspects, whereby…

Winslade, John M. – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
Foucault's concern with the production of subjectivity has led to the development of positioning theory, as it has been called by Bronwyn Davies, Rom Harr and Luk van Langenhve. The concept of discursive positioning has particular value for counselling because it shows how people are positioned in discourse in particular moments by their own and…

Juniper, Dean – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
Leisure counselling is defined as the systematic exploitation of a client's past, existing or prospective hobbies, activities and interests for broad psychotherapeutic purposes. It functions as a powerful agent in the invigoration of a range of existing but inadequate coping skills, and can also act in an innovatory style when such key skills are…

Haworth, John; Lewis, Suzan – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
Both work and leisure are essential for well-being. Yet the ways in which we conceptualise work, leisure and well-being are in flux, reflecting, in part, the changing societal, economic and community contexts in which work and leisure take place. This paper first discusses the contested nature of work and leisure in relation to well-being, and…

This paper serves as an introduction to this issue focused on the importance of work-life balance. Developments at work, in organizations and in society at large are drawing attention to the importance of work-life balance. Work-life balance cannot be understood unless we continue to understand the role that leisure plays in this relationship.…

Leitner, Michael J.; Leitner, Sara F. – British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 2005
If leisure is defined as free or unobligated time, then leisure is clearly the category of time expenditure that has the greatest potential for making people healthy and happy but it also has the greatest potential for creating problems. Therefore, educating and counselling people on how to make best use of their free time can have a great impact…
