Overview

This fresh new book will help future mental health professionals develop the competence they need in technical and clinical skills, while learning to successfully integrate both types into their professional practice.

Material is arranged by skill type, and organized around the acronym BETA—background, emotions, thoughts, and actions—which reflects the range of theorists and therapies, from Freud, Adler, and Jung; through Rogers and Gestalt Therapy; to Emotive Behavior, Cognitive, and Solution-Based Therapy. Both general and specific skills are addressed as they apply to each of the four pillars of the BETA framework, facilitating users' understanding of the broad range of treatment approaches available to clinicians.

For future mental health professionals.
