Develop your own counseling style using Corey's bestselling THEORY AND PRACTICE OF COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY. You will see the major theories of counseling (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist and, and postmodern approaches) as they are used in practice through a case study focused on one client, "Stan." The case of "Stan" appears in each chapter so you can see how the theory presented in that chapter informs therapeutic decision-making.

Editorial Reviews

"a]responsibly integrates theory with a myriad of counseling skills, giving students better insight into what it means to be a counselor. The manuscript has nicely incorporated discussion points and possible techniques that can be adopted into various training models ensuring that counselors-in-training are becoming multiculturally competent. It has also provided students and faculty with a truer understanding of these issues as they relate to social justice."
