Description

For courses in Counseling Interventions; Counseling Process; and Introduction to Counseling.

The Professional Counselor is organised, first and foremost, around the process of counseling–from the first session through termination. Individual chapters look at assessment, at goal setting, at treatment planning, and, finally, at termination. One of the key features that sets this text apart from a standard counseling process text is that it also examines and presents interventions from theoretical perspectives such as Affective Interventions, Cognitive Interventions, Behavioral Interventions, and Systemic Interventions (Chapters 8-11). As a result, interventions are presented not just as techniques, but they are rooted in theory and foundational theraputic perspectives.

  • Expansion of the coverage of culture to include the addition of what might be considered “lesser” cultural identities—like urban culture and military culture—but that can often play significant roles in the development of clients’ problems. For example, see Counseling and Culture (pp. 7-8).
  • Addition of new video examples. More than 40 new end-of-chapter web-based video samples that illustrate skills and procedures discussed in each chapter are presented at the end of each chapter. See pages 97 and 115 for examples.

Also available with MyCounselingLab®

This title is also available with MyCounselingLab–an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with the text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students see key concepts demonstrated through video clips, practice what they learn, test their understanding, and receive feedback to guide their learning and ensure they master key learning outcomes. MyCounselingLab resources include:

  • Video- and Case-Based Exercises. Video- and Case-based Exercises introduce students to a broader range of clients, and therefore a broader range of presenting problems, than they will encounter in their own pre-professional clinical experiences. Students watch videos of actual client-therapist sessions or high-quality role-play scenarios featuring expert counselors. They are then guided in their analysis of the videos through a series of short-answer questions. These exercises help students develop the techniques and decision-making skills they need to be effective counselors before they are in a critical situation with a real client.
  • Licensure Quizzes. Automatically graded, multiple-choice Licensure Quizzes help students prepare for their certification examinations, master foundational course content, and improve their performance in the course.
  • A Video Library. The Video Library provides more than 400 video clips of actual client-therapist sessions and high-quality role plays in a database organized by topic and searchable by keyword. The Video Library includes every video clip from the MyCounselingLab courses plus additional videos from Pearson’s extensive library of footage. Instructors can create additional assignments around the videos or use them for in-class activities. Students can expand their observation experiences to include other course areas and increase the amount of time they spend watching expert counselors in action.
  • MyCounselingLab includes an eText version of the book, which integrates MyCounselingLab. See pages 97 and 115 for examples.
Features & benefits
  • A wealth of case studies and examples in every chapter. See pages 86-87, 89, 91-92, and 112-113 for some examples.
  • Concrete, detailed guidelines on how to perform core counseling tasks. See pages 79-80, 88, and 103 for examples.
  • Nuanced treatment of culture throughout the text. There are separate sections that deal with culture. See pages 7-8, 23, and 108-109 for some examples of these. But the discussion of culture is also simply part of the narrative. For example, to see how culture is infused throughout the interventions chapters see the text sectionsVisual Affect Cues (p. 136) and Client Reactions to Affective Interventions (p. 152) in Chapter 8.
  • Working with children sections in all of the counseling process chapters. See pages 71-72, 81-83, and 107-108 for some examples.
  • Forms and guides that can be used in counseling practice. A series of forms and guides that illustrate the management of counseling cases are included in Appendix B.
