Review:

"The transtheoretical model presented in this book describes an approach that is easily implemented by school counselors. The clear explanations and useful examples help the reader understand the ideas." (Sheri Bauman, Associate Professor 2009-01-13)

"This should become a standard grad school text for up and coming school counselors. The author knows school counseling, school counselors, and what school counselors face on a daily basis. This book helps it all make sense, and makes it even easier to grow as a counselor." (Gloria Avolio DePaul, Elementary School Counselor 2009-01-13)

"The case studies truly assist the reader in understanding how to implement the concepts to create change. The book provides practical ideas and strategies that can easily be implemented in school counseling sessions." (Joyce Stout, Elementary School Counselor 2009-01-13)

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This should become a standard graduate school text for up-and-coming school counselors. The author knows school counseling, school counselors, and what school counselors face on a daily basis. This book helps it all make sense, and makes it even easier to grow as a counselor - Gloria Avolio DePaul, Elementary School Counselor, School District of Hillsborough County, Tampa, FL The process of behavioural change often transcends any single counselling methodology. However, successfully employing diverse intervention strategies requires a coherent framework and an integrated approach. Richard D. Parsons presents a transtheoretical, or eclectic, model school counsellors can use to evaluate student information, select the most effective interventions from a variety of theories, and coordinate the interventions with sequential steps for behavioral change. Following the format of the companion books on behavioural, cognitive, and solution-focused school counselling, this concise text includes: - A reflective, meaning-making model as a basis for effective school counseling - An introduction to the fundamental principles of eclectic or transtheoretical practice - Clinical illustrations of eclectic intervention strategies that promote change - In-depth case studies and guided practice exercises Ideal for individual study or for use in group development, this practical guide allows new and less experienced practitioners to grow from novice to expert through ample opportunities for practice and feedback.
