Essential Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy: Everyday Practice in Our Diverse World
Essential Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy: Everyday Practice in Our Diverse World is the first book to provide an integrated presentation of relational competencies, microskills, and theories. Clear and concise, it gives an overview of current theories, presents best-known evidence-based relationships and practices, and explains how theories apply to counseling and psychotherapy. The book demonstrates theories in action through intentional, ethical, culturally-sensitive interviewing examples and exercises. It closes the gap between theory and practice through reflective exercises, case studies, in-class activities, and engaging video demonstrations. Relevant multicultural and microskills, plus neuroscience information are integrated into each chapter. Intended for an undergraduate audience, Essential Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy is an ideal foundational text for courses in human services, behavioral healthcare, counseling, marriage and family therapy, pastoral counseling, psychology programs, rehabilitation services programs, social services, substance use and addictions programs, and social work programs interested in counseling and psychotherapy theories.
