Designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice, this text presents vivid examples of how 10 counseling approaches (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, feminist, and family systems) work with a single client, Ruth. By applying each theory to a single client, Corey illustrates each therapeutic approach in action and helps clear up misconceptions students might have about how a therapeutic model actually works. Guest commentators (each a well-known and highly recognized practitioner) discuss Ruth's case based on their perspectives. In some cases, Corey was able to enlist the founder of a particular therapy such as William Glasser for control theory and reality therapy, Arnold Lazarus for multimodal therapy, and Albert Ellis for rational emotive behavior therapy.

I read an older version. It's helpful to see the different perspectives one right after another and using the same case study. Read full review
