Incorporating the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience, the ninth edition of Corey's best-selling text offers an easy-to-understand text that helps you compare and contrast the therapeutic models expressed in counseling theories. Corey introduces you to the major theories (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist, and postmodern approaches) and demonstrates how each theory can be applied to a single case ("Stan"). With his trademark style, he shows you how to apply those theories in practice, and helps you learn to integrate the theories into an individualized counseling style. This book is the center of a suite of products that includes the Student Manual, Case Approach to Counseling and Psychotherapy (2013), The Art of Integrative Counseling (2013) and media resources such as "DVD for Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy: The Case of Stan and Lecturettes" and "DVD for Integrative Counseling: The Case of Ruth and Lecturettes."

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."
