For Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy courses. This practical text provides clear, succinct coverage of the core concepts of all of the major contemporary theories of counseling and psychotherapy, including separate chapters on solution-focused and on feminist theory.

The chapters then examine how the theory views (1) human nature, (2) the role of the therapist in counseling, and (3) the theraputic process and techniques. Chapters then present an evaluation of the theory, including an assessment of multicultural and gender issues. Then each chapter concludes by applying the theory to a single case-the case of Linda-that is used across all of the chapters. The text is ideal for instructors who want to give their students a clear understanding of theories' essential concepts and applications.
