Clinical wisdom, hands-on practice, and practical suggestions gleaned from work "in the trenches" are all provided in this flexible learning package that combines the immediacy and realism of video with the pedagogical effectiveness of a carefully-structured text. Professors can choose to use the text alone, use the video alone, or use the two together. In this one-of-a-kind learning package, Bianca Cody Murphy and Carolyn Dillon draw on their years as teachers, supervisors, and clinicians to provide today's students with an integrated learning tool unparalleled in the field. The authors not only lead students step-by-step through the development of a wide range of skills commonly used in practice, but also focus on the development of the professional "self," addressing knowledge base, values, attitudes, and purposeful use of the self. Underlying themes of the book and the video include focusing on a strengths perspective, providing an ecological view on behavior, and understanding that there is more than "one right way" to respond to a client.

"I was impressed with the creativity involved in this endeavor and the delightful practicality of the approach. All too frequently, we see textbooks without visual examples, or tapes without explanations. This project eliminates those weaknesses and creates a strong visual learning component for counseling process skills."
"I am very excited about having the skill-building component in a student-purchased videotape. And no, I would not have the students purchase the video alone because it is coordinated with the text so beautifully. Interviewing in Action approaches the clinical process from a humanistic perspective of valuing the strengths inherent in each client. The text is combined with a video demonstrating essential clinical skills, an invaluable tool for teaching clinical skills. The text covers a variety of therapeutic encounters, not just traditional therapy delivered in a private practice or clinic setting. In short, Interviewing in Action gives the beginning clinician a compact package of the essential tools and models needed to begin therapeutic interventions."
