Working with the Self

Verwachte levertijd ongeveer 10 werkdagen


Examining the self is at the heart of coaching and this book provides a comprehensive overview of knowledge on the Self from psychology, philosophy and other disciplines. Developmental Coaching outlines a theory of individual development, with practical applications for coaches. The Development of Self in Action (DSA) theory provides a credible explanation of the individual functioning, desired changes and development that makes developmental coaching a rigorous, theory-based approach to practice.
Building on the influential first edition of this text, Bachkirova enriches and refines the book with even further conceptual clarity and hands-on advice. These theoretical and practical approaches have been used and tested for over a decade, not only in the actual delivery of developmental coaching, but also in many teaching programmes, numerous masterclasses and coaching supervision internationally. This new edition also offers an additional section on professional development and coaching supervision for coaches in the area.
This book will be an invaluable resource for students on coaching programmes and coaching practitioners who are keen to understand more about developmental coaching and why it works.
“This is the best book written so far about coaching, in my humble opinion, because it is so deeply considered, so original and intelligent, so relevant to practising coaches, and so useful to those seeking practical wisdoms.”

Dr Paul Lawrence, Director Leading Systemically & Honorary Research Associate Oxford Brookes University, UK
“Tatiana masterfully interweaves a rich discussion of the scientific and philosophical foundations of her DSA model with practical tools and implications for coaches.”

Angela Passarelli, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Management, College of Charleston, USA
“Tatiana Bachkirova greatly enriches our understanding of both client and coach.”

Mary Watts, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, City, University of London, UK

Praise from the 1st Edition:
This book is a rare beast in the developmental area of coaching – intelligent, articulate and accessible … Dr Bachkirova’s work combines and extends many existing developmental approaches, making previously opaque frameworks tangible and real.

Anthony Grant, Director of the Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney, Australia
