What reviewers have to say about Acquiring Counseling Skills: Integrating Theory, Multiculturalism, and Self-Awareness:
“[This text] exceeds any other skills text I have seen with regard to the extent of coverage of issues related to culture and the use of an integrative presentation where worldview is simultaneously considered with skills.”
Annette S. Kluck, Auburn University
“This text has multiple strengths offering a sound theory base of knowledge and a thorough presentation of specific counseling skills. It is clear that the author has a strong grasp on theory as well as ‘real world’ counseling experience, which is so valuable for students and is lacking in some texts.”
David A. Scott, Clemson University
“The writing style is at a level that makes reading comfortable....the use of personal examples helps the student realize that they will make mistakes in the beginning, and that is to be expected. It also helps students realize that becoming a counselor is truly a process that is never ending.”
Jasmine Khan, Baylor University
“....one of the strengths of this book is the ability of the author to use metaphor and analogy to teach a concept.”
