Internationally recognized for its successful problem-management and opportunity development approach to effective helping, Egan's text emphasizes the collaborative nature of the therapist-client relationship and uses a practical, three-stage model that drives client problem-managing and opportunity-developing action. Egan masterfully leads readers step-by-step through the counseling process, while giving them a feeling for the complexity inherent in any helping relationship. As readers begin to understand the various steps of the helping model, they are able to improve their competence and confidence measurably. In this new eighth edition, Egan has built upon the strengths of the last edition in which he presented a "positive psychology", solution-focused theme by adding new discussions on evidence-based practice, research, and philosophical perspectives around how helpers know what they know.

Review:

Russ Miars, Portland State, Counseling: "I believe just the right balance of depth and breadth is developed in this text. It appears that a great deal of thoughtfulness has gone into revising the text with important reference updates and new material fully integrated into the flow of the text. The integration of the Positive Psychology constructs throughout Chs. 1-9 is very nice. The central strength of the text remains as it always has: a systematic-eclectic model of helping.... "

Stuart W. B. Evans, University of Melbourne "This text makes experiential and intellectual contact with students and what is better, they continue to use it after they graduate...It is, and has been for 25 years, without doubt the best text of its kind in the world."

Ms. Nelica LaGro, University of East London "The manuscript offers an extremely comprehensive account of process, skills and techniques. It would be difficult to find other publications where all these aspects covered in such a thoughtful and challenging way."
