Theories and Strategies in Counseling and Psychotherapy emphasizes core theories and current trends in the world of counseling and psychotherapy. This is a book that operates in real time. It puts the reader directly into psychotherapy as it is being practiced today through the latest theoretical research and delivery systems. The central axiom in the fifth edition is change-to accommodate the emerging ecological healthcare climate and to incorporate the expanding therapeutic strategies that continue to evolve. For anyone interested in counseling and/or psychotherapy.
Emphasizing ongoing changes in the ecological healthcare climate and therapeutic strategies, this textbook covers humanistic, psychodynamic, behavioral, cognitive, and integrative approaches to therapy. The book includes specific chapters addressing Gestalt therapy, psychoanalytic theory, Adlerian therapy, transactional analysis, choice theory and reality therapy, rational-emotive behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, systems therapy, eclectic counseling, and cybercounseling. The authors teach at the University of Memphis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
