Entranced by story : brain, tale and teller, from infancy to old age by Hugh Crago( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We live in a world of stories; yet few of us pause to ask what stories actually are, why we consume them so avidly, and what they do for story makers and their audiences. This book focuses on the experiences that good stories generate: feelings of purposeful involvement, elevation, temporary loss of self, vicarious emotion, and relief of tension. The author examines what drives writers to create stories and why readers fall under their spell; why some children grow up to be writers; and how the capacity for creating and comprehending stories develops from infancy right through into old age. Entranced by Story applies recent research on brain function to literary examples ranging from the Iliad and Wuthering Heights to Harold and the Purple Crayon, providing a groundbreaking exploration of the biological and neurological basis of the literary experience. Blending research, theory, and biographical anecdote, the author shows how it is the unique structure of the human brain, with its layering of sophisticated cognitive capacities upon archaic, emotion-driven functions, which best explains the mystery of story. -- Provided by publisher
Couple, family and group work : first steps in interpersonal intervention by Hugh Crago( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book shows one-to-one counsellors and therapists how to shift gear in order to work effectively with the tensions between two or more clients at once. The goal is to harness 'the power of many' - the relief, creativity and excitement that come when people rediscover what they have in common, instead of focussing on the differences that divide them." "Couple, Family and Group Work is essential reading for those training, or newly qualified, in counselling, psychotherapy or the related helping professions. It is also be of interest to students and professionals in the fields of psychology, social work, psychiatry, nursing and social welfare."--BOOK JACKET
A safe place for change : skills and capacities for counselling by Hugh Crago( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2019 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of counselling can be a bewildering experience. Learning to be a counsellor involves developing practical skills, not just acquiring knowledge. And trainee counsellors must reflect on their own behaviour - the theory doesn't make sense without self-awareness. In A Safe Place for Change, two outstanding teachers have set out to demystify that crucial first year of learning. Crago and Gardner emphasise how 'holding' skills must come before skills that assist clients to 'explore' their presenting issues, and how both must precede interventions that challenge clients with 'gentle honesty'. They show why premature attempts to help clients change their behaviour are doomed to fail, and why counsellors should evaluate the appropriateness of their interventions by the way their clients respond to what they have said. They ask 'what happens at the third session?' and suggest what early dropouts mean, and how they can be minimised
