Part II of this manual is a revision of the original 1978 text. It lists counsellor interventions under eight different aspects of intensive counselling, and concludes with my account of the primary qualities that distinguish effective intensive counselling. Part I is a more recent model of counsellor interventions. It starts with a four-part grid which relates both the client's content cues, and the client's process cues, to the counsellor prompting the client to be active, and to the counsellor being active while the client is receptive and responsive. This is followed by an overlapping account of counsellor interventions, simply listed under 'Working with content' and 'Working with process', and taken from Chapter 7, 'Cathartic Interventions' in my book Helping the Client: A Creative, Practical Guide, London: Sage, 1990.
