Intended for the first course in counselling and/or counselling theories for undergraduate and graduate students in psychology, counsellor education, and the human services and mental health services professions, this text covers nine contemporary theories of counselling and demonstrates how each theory can be applied to a single case (Stan). Corey's goal is to provide students with a sound base they can use for building a personalized style of counselling that incorporates the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience. Students should learn to select wisely from the various theories and techniques and develop an understanding of the professional and personal issues that emerge in the counselling relationship.

"Students love this book. They constantly comment on the organization and how interesting it is to read. I require them to do a template for each theory based on key figures, goals, role, and function of therapist. It is the organization of the book that facilitates the completion and understanding of the templates for students."
"Corey does two things extremely well: He takes complex theory and distills it into concise, comprehensible reading for beginning students. He also does a superb job of demonstrating how theoretical concepts can be applied to a counseling setting."
"In general, I believe that the Corey text is one of the best available for students at the level at which I teach (psychology majors at the advanced level)." "...well-written, up-to-date, highly readable and accessible, an excellent introduction to counseling theories, and a text that emphasizes growth and wholeness rather than pathology. In describing this book, I would also emphasize the attention to diversity that flows throughout the book. I would highlight both the multicultural sections and the feminist therapy approach as evidence of Corey's commitment to an inclusive approach."
