For courses in Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy. This new counseling theories text provides an refreshingly clear explanation of the major counseling theories, yet it has the depth of a well written and researched book. Newer theories like Solution Focused and Narrative are covered in individual chapters and the most up to date applications of more classic theories are also included. For example, brief forms of psychodynamic theory are covered extensively. The authors have extensive clinical experience, which they have used enliven the text and provide understandable examples of each theory. A discussion of multicultural issues is infused throughout the book and students are encouraged to consider cultural issues in many of the examples of each theory. A unique chapter on psychopharmacology covers the "biochemical" approach to treatment, with particular emphasis how counselors handle client medications and interactions with the physicians and othe presscribers. Thought-provoking questions and learning activities are provided for each chapter, and a companion web site includes important aids, such as available videotapes and relevant web sites. Additionally, set of two Video Role Play DVDs is packaged in the back of every new copy of this text. Each DVD will include video clips of counseling sessions in progress and illustrate how techniques and concepts discussed in the text are used in counseling sessions. Following each video clip, the authors discuss the concept or technique used and how this session may affect future sessions. Readers will be cued by DVD icons that appear throughout the text in the margin to direct them to the appropriate video clip on the DVD.
