This new counseling theories book provides a clear, fresh explanation of the major counseling approaches, yet has the depth, research and detail needed for many practitioners in the field.  The authors' extensive clinical experience enlivens the material and provides understandable examples of each theory. Newer theories like Solution-Focused and Narrative are covered in individual chapters and up to date applications of more classic theories are included throughout.  Infused within each chapter is a discussion of multicultural issues and reflective questions. A unique chapter on psychopharmacology covers the "biochemical" approach to treatment and discusses client, counselor and physician relationships.

From the Back Cover:

This clear, engaging, and accessible counseling theories text offers comprehensive and integrative coverage of the major theoretical approaches, as well as several emerging approaches. The text provides not only the background counselors need to understand the theoretical approaches but also numerous cases, examples, and therapeutic techniques to illustrate how to apply each theoretical approach.

 

  • Unlike similar texts where integration is discussed in a separate chapter, this text covers integration in every chapter to address integrating each specific theory with other approaches (e.g., page 57).
  • Every chapter includes a section discussing multicultural and diversity effectiveness for that theoretical approach (e.g., page 52).
  • Each chapter covering theoretical approaches (Chapters 2-14) begins with a discussion on the historical context and background of the theory, as well as background on the theorist (e.g., page 21).
  • An overview of outcome research, along with a summary of a sample research study, is included for every theoretical approach (e.g., page 58).
  • This is the only counseling theory text available that includes a chapter on Psychopharmacological (Biological) Approaches (Chapter 14).
