This revision of Gerald Corey's best-selling text introduces students to the major theories of counseling (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist and, NEW to this edition, postmodern approaches) and demonstrates how each theory can be applied to a single case ("Stan"). Reviewed by 27 of the field's leading experts, Corey's Seventh Edition covers the major concepts of counseling theories, shows students how to apply those theories in practice, and helps them learn to integrate the theories into an individualized counseling style. Incorporating the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience, Corey offers an easy-to-understand text that helps students compare and contrast the therapeutic models. This book is the center of a suite of products that include a revised student manual, a revised casebook, a companion text, and an all-new CD-ROM.

Review:

"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."
