Theory and Design in Counseling and Psychotherapy - With Casebook (ISBN10: 0618467408; ISBN13: 9780618467402)
ISBN13: 978-0618467402
ISBN10: 0618467408

Summary: This introduction to theories of counseling and psychotherapy relates major schools of thought to everyday practice in the helping professions. The author employs a student-friendly tone to explain the complexities of each theory, provides examples to clarify abstract ideas, and focuses on the positive psychology aspects within the theories discussed. In addition, one full chapter covers the transpersonal psychological theories exemplified in the therapeutic aspects
of yoga, meditation, and exercise.

Each chapter opens with a selection from the writing of a prominent theorist, followed by thought-provoking questions. Students learn about the connection between theory and case conceptualization through an overall strategy in chapter 2, and also within each chapter through conceptualizations written by experts. Accompanying examples and exercises then lead students to an understanding of how theory is applied in treatment. Additional Pedagogical aids such as class discussion topics, small group exercises and discussions, and personal reflections enhance the interactive learning experience.
  • Multicultural matters are integrated into all chapters instead of discussed separately, with multicultural systems included into the Family Systems and Culture and Gender-Based Systems chapters.
  • Biographies of major figures associated with each theory appear in sidebars.
  • Students are encouraged to work in small groups to create meaningful definitions of key terms.
  • Research activities take students to the Web and the library and help them advance their skills at finding and evaluating information.
