Summary

This reader-friendly practice text emphasizes intelligent decision-making in the use of interviewing and counseling skills and provides strategies for professionals in social work and counseling.
Based on a four-phase model of counseling, each chapter in Choices explores key concepts with theory, case studies, annotated practice examples, conversations, and responses to frequently asked questions. The text lends students and professionals the ability to use or forego particular skills based on the unique needs of individuals and situations. Choices promotes a "strengths approach" to clients by stressing the importance of counselor self-awareness and cultural competence.
