To demonstrate real-life applications of how each technique can be used in counseling, case examples are presented. Designed to prepare students to enter their field with sound ideas for applying theory-based techniques to their counseling, it provides hands-on help for working with clients from all backgrounds to create changes in their lives and meet their counseling goals. The book is ideal as either a secondary text in a theories/techniques practicum or internship, or in an advanced or applied skills course.
