Overview

This ISBN is for the MyLab access card. Pearson eText is included.

Connect counseling theories with clinical practice.
Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy: Systems, Strategies, and Skills offers an innovative look at emerging and well-established counseling theories. Each theory chapter begins with a brief overview of the approach and a biographical sketch of its developer, and then moves on to the theory’s key concepts, therapeutic process, therapeutic techniques and procedures, application and current use, and strengths and limitations. Particular attention is given to the application of each theory to people from diverse backgrounds. At the end of each chapter, skill development and personal development activities allow students to connect counseling theories to clinical practice.

Fully revised, the 5th Edition removes the BETA format of previous editions in order to engage with the richness and complexity of each theory. Updated information is provided on each theory, and new chapters have been added to address contemporary cognitive behavioral theories, postmodern theories, and feminist therapy.
