0 Reviews
Clinical wisdom, hands-on practice, and practical suggestions gleaned from work in the trenches are all provided in this flexible learning package that combines the immediacy and realism of video with the pedagogical effectiveness of a carefully-structured text. Professors can choose to use the text alone, use the video alone, or use the two together. In this one-of-a-kind learning package, Bianca Cody Murphy and Carolyn Dillon draw on their years as teachers, supervisors, and clinicians to provide today's students with an integrated learning tool unparalleled in the field. The authors not only lead students step-by-step through the development of a wide range of skills commonly used in practice, but also focus on the development of the professional self, addressing knowledge base, values, attitudes, and purposeful use of the self. Underlying themes of the book and the video include focusing on a strengths perspective, providing an ecological view on behavior, and understanding that there is more than one right way to respond to a client.
