Research has shown that the most effective way to prepare students for practice with real clients is to learn to think in a new way rather than simply learning and using a set of steps. While there is much to be learned from what master practitioners do in their sessions, there is even more knowledge to gain from learning how they think. The second edition of Principles of Counseling and Psychotherapy offers students and practitioners a way to understand the processes behind effective outcomes with a wide variety of clients.
The second edition is infused with real-world clinical case examples and opportunities for readers to apply the material to the cases being presented. New "thought-exercise" sections are specifically designed to engage the reader's natural non-linear thinking, and transcript material both from cases and from master therapists themselves are interwoven in the text. Accompanying videos, available through Alexander Street Press, bring the text to life, and instructors will find testbanks, transition notes, and narrated PowerPoints available for free download from the book's website at www.routledgementalhealth.com

"I am astonished. Finally, there is a text that makes it possible to prepare therapists to learn to think in an effective, nonlinear way. Thanks to the authors, future professionals can now become true master therapists rather than the mere technicians created via traditional training methods. The second edition also provides media support and exercises that teach the processes needed for clinical competence with a wide variety of clientele."
-Jon Carlson, PsyD, EdD, ABPP, distinguished professor of counseling at Governors State University
"If you have been looking for a pragmatic approach to becoming a master counselor, you've found it! Principles of Counseling and Psychotherapy, 2nd ed, provides a delightful mix of counseling applications derived from apt metaphors, case examples, skill-development exercises, and transcripts of masters demonstrating their craft. The authors do a thorough job helping counselors to connect with clients and help navigate client ambivalence to enact constructive life changes. The companion videos are a real bonus."
-Bradley T. Erford, PhD, professor at Loyola University Maryland and past president of the American Counseling Association
"Principles of Counseling and Psychotherapy, second edition, provides clinicians and trainees with a clear path to understanding some of the most complex issues encountered in counseling and clinical work by using real-world examples and examples of master clinicians at work. A must read."
-Paul Ekman, PhD, professor emeritus of psychology at the University of California, San Francisco, and president of the Paul Ekman Group
"Modern mental-health practitioners operate in an era of accountability, one in which they must be able to implement skills that are indicative of evidence-based practice and effectiveness. In Principles of Counseling and Psychotherapy, the emerging counseling professional is introduced to concepts and skills that lead to effective practice, and these are merged with modern research that is introduced in a meaningful, practical manner."
-Richard S. Balkin, PhD, assistant dean and associate professor at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and editor of the Journal of Counseling & Development
