Quatrième de couverture
This guide is designed to assist helping professionals—those who work with diverse populations in a wide array of fields—in the process of finding a theoretical orientation congruent with their own personal values. In it, readers get a look at the theory and practices involved in the process; a reminder/overview of the major theories of counseling; and specific learning activities, reflection questions, and case examples throughout. Unique to this book are the authors’ Intentional Theory Selection (ITS) model, a contemporary model for selecting a theoretical orientation congruent with one’s personal values, and the Selective Theory Sorter-Revised (STS-R), a survey for discovering which research theories a counselor might endorse.
Updated throughout, the Third Edition focuses on assisting clinicians further in finding their theoretical orientation in a diverse society while enjoying the self-exploration process and includes:
An increased focus on diversity, including commentary regarding the application of each theory in a culturally rich profession.
A greater review of the implications of empirically validated treatments and the implications of common-factor approaches to counseling.
An expansion and update of the counseling theories, including updated techniques.
Greater explanation of the application of multicultural counseling and feminism,
Increased focus on material relevant to Counseling for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational ProgramsTM (CACREP) 2016 Standards.
Updated websites and cases.
