Overview

This text is a virtual handbook of classic mistakes to anticipate, work through, and grow from. It identifies, discusses and re-frames classic mistakes that beginning interviewers and clinicians are likely to make in practice by illuminating a myriad of mistakes through the use of first-hand vignettes, in-text exercises, and a systems framework. This book uses a strengths-perspective, and can serve as a companion text or as a stand-alone primer because of its elaboration of the phases, principles, strategies and methods used in the helping process.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"... comprehensive primer designed to help students appreciate continued personal development in the pursuit of high quality professional work practice. The materials fills an important gap in social work education by uncovering valuable learning opportunities through the mistakes that we make as helping professionals."

"... an excellent description of the trials and tribulations of graduate students as they progress towards becoming professional counselors. Students will feel more accepting of the mistakes they make because they will see examples of others mistakes and realize it is part of the process, not something to avoid and be afraid of. It will help alleviate some of the anxiety that often gets in the way of the student's ability to respond to clients in a genuine manner."

From The Critics
This guide for students, beginning clinicians, and allied health professionals employs multicultural vignettes in a variety of settings to describe some of the mistakes commonly made by therapists. Coverage includes how to avoid or repair the damage from mistakes such as breaches of confidentiality, steering around difficult topics, and minimizing signs of risk. Dillon teaches at the Boston University School of Social Work. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
