This psychotherapy training text is appropriate for graduate courses in child and adolescent therapy in Psychology, Education, and Social Work. McClure and Teyber's text uses a multicultural-relational approach to counseling, emphasizing that a variety of sociocultural factors impact "worldviews", subjective experience, and symptom presentation. Clinical trainees are provided with a concrete and practical way to conceptualize client problems and formulate treatment plans. Extensive case studies, chosen to represent the most salient clinical disorders, illustrate how multicultural-relational counseling actually operates. Features: * The text articulates a specific model for providing multiculturally sensitive therapy within a relational framework, giving the structure and organization students need to conceptualize client dynamics and develop treatment plans. * The multicultural-relational approach provides a unifying metaperspective to which students can apply a variety of theoretical perspectives and intervention techniques. The text also uses Social Welfare as a unifying concept.
* An up-to-date review of the current empirical literature and DSM-IV characteristics of each disorder are included. * A standardized format for case conceptualization guidelines and process notes enables students to translate theory into practice and to develop treatment plans that are appropriate for today's managed-care environment. * Compelling case study illustrations put theory into practice.
