GET TO KNOW THE ORIGINS, DEVELOPMENT, AND KEY FIGURES OF EACH MAJOR COUNSELING THEORY

This comprehensive text covers all the major theories in counseling and psychotherapy along with an emphasis on how to use these theoretical models in clinical practice. The authors cover the history, key figures, research base, multicultural implications, and practical applications of the following theoretical perspectives: Psychoanalytic, Individual/Adlerian, Existential, Gestalt, Person- Centered, Behavioral, Cognitive-Behavioral, Choice Theory/Reality Therapy, Feminist, Constructive, Family Systems, Multicultural, and Eclectic/Integrative. This text has case examples that bring each theory to life.

The entire book has been updated with the latest research and techniques. Pedagogical features include learner objectives, “Putting It in Practice” boxes, questions for reflection, case examples and treatment planning, and chapter summaries. Every theory is examined from cultural, gender/sexual, and spiritual perspectives. The instructor supplement package includes a Respondus test bank, chapter outlines, supplemental lecture ideas, classroom activities, and PowerPoint slides. It also includes video demonstrations corresponding to every major theory and linked to each chapter’s contents. In addition, a WPLS course will be available after publication.

  • Expanded video elements closely tied to sections of the text
  • New visuals, including graphics, charts, and tables to facilitate student understanding of theories and how they relate to one another
  • Increased coverage of multicultural and ethical issues in every chapter
  • Cultural, gender, sexuality, and spiritual issues are integrated into every chapter

The Sommers-Flanagan’s hands-on, practical approach emphasizes how students and practitioners can apply these theories in real-world practice. Students are empowered to develop theoretically-sound and evidence-based approaches to conducting counseling and psychotherapy.

    I would recommend this immediately to anyone studying psychology. Or even just interested in the subject.
    This is one of the few textbooks that I refer back to on a regular basis, so it is useful, but I also enjoyed reading it, which (lets be honest) never happens with textbooks.
    Also, I got a lot of mileage out of the study guide, which is more of a workbook.

    I was required to get this text for a Theories course in grad school. I really enjoyed the book. It was easy to read and easy to follow. I loved the fact the the book included some jokes here and there. I was a Psych major in undergrad and learned these theories before, but I felt like I really learned them more thoroughly after reading this book.

    I rented this textbook from my university's bookstore but I wish I'd checked here first! Dr. Sommers-Flanagan (one of the authors) taught this course. The text was incredible! It is written in an engaging and easy-to-understand way. There are great examples for each section so you can "see" the method at work with clients. I would also recommend buying the study companion. It was a great way to memorize and understand the key concepts and theories. Overall, it was one of the best textbooks I've been assigned!
