Product description

From the Inside Flap

GET TO KNOW THE ORIGINS, DEVELOPMENT, AND KEY FIGURES OF EACH MAJOR COUNSELING THEORY

This comprehensive text covers all the major theories in counseling and psychotherapy along with an emphasis on how to use these theoretical models in clinical practice. The authors cover the history, key figures, research base, multicultural implications, and practical applications of the following theoretical perspectives: Psychoanalytic, Individual/Adlerian, Existential, Gestalt, Person- Centered, Behavioral, Cognitive-Behavioral, Choice Theory/Reality Therapy, Feminist, Constructive, Family Systems, Multicultural, and Eclectic/Integrative. This text has case examples that bring each theory to life.

The entire book has been updated with the latest research and techniques. Pedagogical features include learner objectives, "Putting It in Practice" boxes, questions for reflection, case examples and treatment planning, and chapter summaries. Every theory is examined from cultural, gender/sexual, and spiritual perspectives. The instructor supplement package includes a Respondus test bank, chapter outlines, supplemental lecture ideas, classroom activities, and PowerPoint slides. It also includes video demonstrations corresponding to every major theory and linked to each chapter's contents. In addition, a WPLS course will be available after publication.

  • Expanded video elements closely tied to sections of the text
  • New visuals, including graphics, charts, and tables to facilitate student understanding of theories and how they relate to one another
  • Increased coverage of multicultural and ethical issues in every chapter
  • Cultural, gender, sexuality, and spiritual issues are integrated into every chapter

The Sommers-Flanagan's hands-on, practical approach emphasizes how students and practitioners can apply these theories in real-world practice. Students are empowered to develop theoretically-sound and evidence-based approaches to conducting counseling and psychotherapy.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I am a faculty member in Counselor Education at the University of Montana, a clinical psychologist, and mental health consultant for Trapper Creek Job Corps. I love working with tough kids and young adults, offering professional workshops and keynotes, and teaching at the University of Montana.

After many years of playing sports I have developed a friendly but competitive streak that involves me engaging in particularly annoying victory dances when I win at family games. Unfortunately, my game-playing skills never match my trash talking and so now my friends and family (especially my wife and daughters) are usually the ones who get to do the victory dances. Sometimes I channel my competitiveness into fantasizing a peculiar form of March Madness where user-friendly counseling and psychotherapy approaches compete head-to-head with "empirically supported" manualized techniques. Of course, in the end, the user-friendly approaches easily win the tournament, thus proving forever that developing and maintaining a positive relationship with clients is much more effective over the long haul than applying educational techniques described in a treatment manual or attempting to medicate away undesirable behaviors and moods. This, of course, accurately implies that I almost always root for the underdog and wish deeply for social justice.
