"The 7th edition of this text is unique in that it contains chapters on all major counseling theories written by counseling scholars and practitioners who specialize in the theoretical perspectives they summarize and explore. Drs.

Each theory is discussed in terms of historical background; human nature and development; major constructs; applications, including goals, the process of change, traditional and brief interventions, and serious mental health issues; supporting research and limitations; and the case of Clarita. The use of a consistent case study across chapters reinforces the differences between theories and demonstrates how each theory influences the counseling and treatment plan. A complimentary test manual and PowerPoints for instructor use are available by request.
