This instructionally oriented, laboratory-based book successfully integrates theory and skills for counselors-in-training, providing them with a solid foundation. It presents a comprehensive overview of the counseling process from a practical and skilled-based point of view, emphasizing communication between counselor and client and ways to assess counseling effectiveness. In writing this book, Doyle felt that the available texts did not spend enough time on the counseling process nor on communication skills, and he believes a firm understanding of both is crucial for student learning. He has organized this valuable resource book into three major sections: Part One provides a theoretical understanding of several essential concepts related to the dynamics of the counseling process; Part Two outlines a number of intervention strategies; and Part Three describes and amply illustrates the critical communication skills required for effective helping.
