An Introduction and Practical Implications of a Pluralistic Approach Mick Cooper

Mick’s extensive knowledge and experience was shared in a warm and friendly manner. His workshop began with an introduction to the approach. He explained how pluralism looks beyond separate ‘schools of thought’ and concentrates more on the value of shared decision making with the client. He describes it as, ‘a celebration of diversity in therapy’, with an emphasis on the belief that different clients may benefit from different things, at different times. A fresh perspective [...]
