Overview

One Life at a Time: Helping Skills and Interventions is a student-centered, inexpensive experientially based textbook for beginning courses in counseling and therapy. Written in Kottler's personal, easy-to-read and engaging style, this text covers all the basic skills and core interventions that beginners need to be taught in order to begin seeing clients. Students are encouraged to explore self-reflection and make connections between the material and their prior knowledge and experience; once internalized, these ideas and skills can be applied to one's life as well as one's work. Including an online instructor's manual, case examples and first person accounts - this book will help students to understand how best to meet a client's needs.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book is a gem for training brand new counseling students. Kottler and Brew walk students through every aspect of seeing clients for the very first time, (both the client's first time, and the therapist's)! The authors give the student a first row seat in viewing the intricate workings of the therapy room, from joining with a client, to setting goals, to promoting client change, and terminating therapy. In addition, in a unique format, the students are offered views of the authors' internal workings as they have learned to master counseling skills themselves over the years. Their wisdom and wit prevail in this primer for counseling.' - Lorna Hecker, Ph.D., Professor, Marriage and Family Therapy, Purdue University Calumet, USA
