Bridging the gap between theory and practice, Hackney and Bernard’s The Professional Counselor offers a solid grounding in counseling skills and an understanding of how these skills are used within different therapy orientations, including affective, cognitive, behavioral, and systemic domains. It presents students with a four-stage model of counseling which shows them how to assess client problems, develop counseling goals, define strategies and select interventions, and terminate and evaluate the counseling relationship. The new co-author of this edition, Janine M. Bernard, brings her expertise in clinical supervision to help deconstruct the counseling process for learners, resulting in effective editing of all chapters in this edition. Also included is a discussion of the application of counseling interventions to Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Motivation Interviewing, so that students can appreciate that skills are not distinct from therapy approaches they will use in their clinical courses. Included are new case examples drawing from different specialties within counseling, and more than 40 new web-based video samples illustrating the content of the book.

Editorial Reviews

From reviews of the text:   “The Professional Counselor is a very clearly written text that the first-semester Master of Counseling students can easily grasp the content. I also received similar feedback from the students . . . . [C]hapters are structured in a manner that provides concreteness and continuity within the content. Therefore, it is easy to follow and understand for entry-level students.  The written language of the book is very clear. The content is supported by good examples that help with the comprehension . . . .  [T]he interventions (affective, cognitive, behavioral, and systemic) chapters are very well described.”                 —Gulsah Kemer, University of Arizona State University   “[Key strengths are:] The authors include the multicultural perspectives in many chapters. The structure and organization for each chapter are well planned. [And] the writing style is easy to understand for the readers.”                 —Yu-Fen Lin, University of North Texas Dallas   “The Professional Counselor . . . provides the beginning counselor the opportunity for a comprehensive overview of the process of counseling while further delivering specific interventions and approaches (i.e. fundamental counseling skills) . . . . While this is a text book with a focus on the counseling profession it doubly serves as a reference resource to providing an effective counseling program . . . .  The key strengths of this text are the concise explanations of counseling concepts with practical clinical applications . . . .  [M]any of my students comment on how helpful the text is in understanding the concepts of counseling . . . .  This text is superior to others that I have used in that it explains practical applications of interventions and how to deliver those to the client.”                 —Oscar Sida, University of Nevada Las Vegas
