Review:

"The Cormier, Nurius, and Osborn text presents interviewing and change strategies within a carefully-researched but very readable format. The crucial importance of building a strong client/counselor relationship is clearly articulated in all of its relevant ingredients. Following this exposition, conceptualizing and assessment with goal setting and treatment planning are carefully examined. Finally, a variety of cognitive behavioral strategies are carefully reviewed with remarkable clarity. Throughout the text, attention is devoted to diversity issues, the client's ecology, and a multidisciplinary helping approach. Valuable learning exercises, client illustrations, and model dialogues are also included for many of the strategies described. A careful reading of this text by your students would ensure that they have been exposed to the fundamental skills and strategies needed for a beginning helper. . . . Graduates will choose to retain this book indefinitely as a reference in their professional library."

"The text, INTERVIEWING AND CHANGE STRATEGIES FOR HELPERS, is a thorough review of the literature and technique that prepares beginning psychologists and counselors to realistically understand, conceptualize and walk with clients through the counseling process. This text encourages learning by doing! The authors provide ample opportunities for the student to go beyond contemplation. There are numerous activities in each chapter that could be likened to a workbook format. If you are fairly new to teaching in the counseling field, this text is a gem as it provides ample teaching opportunities to be utilized during class, requiring little additional preparation by the instructor."

"INTERVIEWING AND CHANGE STRATEGIES is one of the best, if not the best single text to teach basic counseling skills and intervention strategies. It is extremely thorough in the coverage of topics, current in the presentation of research to support the use of the strategies identified, and it seamlessly integrates issues related to diversity into the flow of the discussion. It is very thorough and every chapter has been extremely applicable to the needs of counselors in training. I often tell students that if I had to choose only 2 texts to teach counseling, INTERVIEWING AND CHANGE STRATEGIES would be one of them."
