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.

Tatiana Bachkirova is Professor of Coaching Psychology and Co-Director of the International Centre for Coaching and Mentoring Studies at Oxford Brookes University, UK. She is a recognised international speaker and her many publications include over 70 research and conceptual papers as well as edited volumes.
