Summary

This text is part of a unique learning system--consisting of a text, a video, and a student workbook--that is designed to develop and enhance the core skills and strategies necessary to become an effective therapist.

Becoming an Effective Therapist describes and illustrates the skills and strategies that experienced, effective therapists utilize in everyday therapeutic encounters with individuals, couples, and families. While some background information is included, such as the theory supporting the specific skills and some historical and contextual information, it is kept to a minimum. Rather, the focus is on developing competency in the core counseling and psychotherapy skills that will contribute to the learner's effectiveness as a therapist.

Features :

  • Provides the learner with highly effective skill development exercises to master the core skills.
  • Contextualizes skills in today's environment of accountability, e.g., managed care, and multiculturalism.
  • Provides a conceptual "compass" that indicates the most appropriate skills to use in each of the four phases of psychotherapy.
  • The text is part of an integrated "learning system" contained in a reasonably priced Workbook-with-Video package available for student purchase. It includes:
  • a video that provides the learner a real-life, in-session portrayal of the core psychotherapeutic skills to facilitate understanding and skill development. Each of these skills is demonstrated by a master clinician.
  • a Student Workbook/Learning Guide that provides a series of exercises to further enhance the student's mastery of the content and skills, both conceptually and experientially. The guide contains a series of role-play scenarios, instructions on maximizing the use of the video, and case material to help students apply what they have learned.
