9780534050771: Theory and practice of counseling and psychotherapy

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.

Review:

"The book is well-organized and written in a style that is easy to read and integrate. Pains were taken to make sure that material is current and reflects movement within each of the approaches. Students react favorably to the text (past edition) since they find the material easier to understand and grasp (for later recall!) than some of their texts."

"Corey's book provides a consistent format for describing and critiquing the major counseling theories. The consistent structure allows students to compare and contrast theories more easily."

"I applaud your attempts to work multicultural issues into each of the chapters...Multicultural issues appear to provide greater relevance when dealt within the context of a specific theory, or better yet, specific culture."
