This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. This guide is designed to assist therapists in training—mental health counselors, psychologists, social workers, school counselors, substance abuse counselors, psychotherapists, and peer helpers—in the process of finding a theoretical orientation congruent with their own personal values. In it, readers get a look at the theory and practices involved in the process; a concise, helpful reminder/overview of the major theories of counseling; and specific learning activities, reflection questions, and case examples interspersed throughout. Unique to this book are the authors’ Intentional Theory Selection (ITS) model, a contemporary model for selecting a theoretical orientation congruent with one’s personal values, and the Selective Theory Sorter-Revised (STS-R), a survey for discovering which research theories a counselor might endorse. Updated throughout, the Third Edition focuses on assisting clinicians further in finding their theoretical orientation in a diverse society while enjoying the self-exploration process. The authors have presented the ITS model and the STS-R at many professional conferences, incorporating the feedback into the new edition.

Practical, relevant, and cutting edge, the text gives students solid examples of psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist, and postmodern theories in action. Dr. Corey applies each therapeutic approach to a single client, illustrating how the various theories work and exactly how the techniques differ. Well-respected and widely recognized practitioners serve as guest commentators, offering their unique perspectives on Ruth’s case.

A uniquely practical guide and widely adopted text, this book shows precisely what therapists can say at key moments to enhance the process of healing and change.

He offers clear and specific guidelines for how to ask questions and make comments in ways that facilitate collaborative exploration and promote change. Illustrated with vivid case examples, the book is grounded in an integrative theory that draws from features of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, systemic, and experiential approaches. New to This Edition * Reflects nearly 20 years of advances in the field and refinements of the author's approach. *Broader audience: in addition to psychodynamic therapists, cognitive-behavioral therapists and others will find specific, user-friendly recommendations. *Chapter on key developments and convergences across different psychotherapeutic approaches. *Chapter on the therapeutic implications of attachment theory and research.

Therapists have a unique opportunity and responsibility to provide a respectful environment for their clients, yet respect has not received adequate attention in the psychotherapy community and related research. Respect-Focused Therapy: Honoring Clients Through the Therapeutic Relationship and Process sets forth the formulation of respect-focused therapy (RFT), a new approach to psychotherapy that addresses the quality of the client–therapist relationship and therapeutic process. This volume treats respect as a combination of action, attitude and open-mindedness, urging therapists to recognize their own biases and beliefs and be willing to suspend them for the benefit of their clients. Using Martin Buber’s "I-Thou" relationship as a conceptual model, Slay-Westbrook provides core principles of respect and demonstrates how to incorporate these into the therapeutic relationship to best foster a healing environment.

Featuring important theories and trends not covered in other foundational texts, this book is designed to equip the next generation of counselors with the tools they need for understanding the core dimensions of the helping relationship. Topical experts provide contemporary information and insight on the following theories: psychoanalytic, Jungian, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, cognitive behavior, dialectical behavior, rational emotive behavior, reality therapy/choice theory, family, feminist, transpersonal, and—new to this edition—solution-focused and narrative therapies, as well as creative approaches to counseling. Each theory is discussed from the perspective of historical background, human nature, major constructs, applications, the change process, traditional and brief intervention strategies, cross-cultural considerations, and limitations. The use of a consistent case study across chapters reinforces the differences between theories. *Requests for digital versions from the ACA can be found on wiley.com. *To request print copies, please visit the ACA website here. *Reproduction requests for material from books published by ACA should be directed to [email protected]
