The first text on the market designed to help readers conceptualize the various dimensions of an integrative perspective, THE ART OF INTEGRATIVE COUNSELING can be used as a supplement for theories or practicum courses and is ideal for students who already have a basic knowledge of counseling theory. Students are first introduced to the concepts and techniques that Gerald Corey draws from in his own integrative approach to counseling. Second, they see how concepts and techniques can be borrowed from a variety of theoretical models and applied to phases of the counseling process from initial to termination stages. Third, the text suggests ways that readers can design a personal integrative approach that they can use as the foundation for their counseling practice.

"I very much like the inclusion of a section in each chapter that addresses the reader as a counseling client. This, as usual, is one of the real strengths of a Corey text-the ability to actively engage the reader so that the material is personalized."
"Corey shares his thoughts, his perspectives, his inferences and reasons behind them. Students who are mystified and overwhelmed by the plethora of theories to which they are exposed can find solace and clarity in Corey's exposition."
"This text brings about an awareness of issues that the beginning therapist may not have considered important, but are vital, such as diversity, a client educational component, and spirituality."
