For courses in Introduction to Counseling/Psychotherapy, Counseling Skills, and Advanced Counseling/Psychotherapy.

Taking a very practical "how to be a psychotherapist" approach, this overview of the process of counseling provides information that is fundamental to counseling, but not representative of any one theoretical orientation. Concise, yet thorough-and accessible to novice and seasoned professional alike-it explores counseling basics (e.g., skills, relationship building) as well as specific populations (e.g., groups, clients in crisis, couples, and diverse populations).

Review quote

"This is a book that clearly and skillfully integrates most theories of psychotherapy . . . using frequent references to literature . . . and direct quotations, which substantiate [their] position on specific issues."
