CASE APPROACH TO COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY, Seventh Edition, vividly illustrates how major counseling approaches work with a single client--Ruth. Practical, relevant, and cutting edge, the text gives students solid examples of psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist, and postmodern theories in action. Dr. Corey applies each therapeutic approach to a single client, illustrating how the various theories work and exactly how the techniques differ. Well-respected and widely recognized practitioners serve as guest commentators, offering their unique perspectives on Ruth’s case. Commentators even include founders of some of the therapies, such as William Glasser for choice theory and reality therapy, Arnold Lazarus for multimodal therapy, and Albert Ellis for rational emotive behavior therapy. Responding to reviewer suggestions, the new edition also includes added coverage of multicultural, LGBT, and spirituality issues. It culminates in helping readers develop their own personal therapeutic style. Designed to accompany Corey, THEORY AND PRACTICE OF COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY, CASE APPROACH TO COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY, Seventh Edition, is an excellent standalone text or resource for required introduction to theories courses found in counselor education, human services, counseling and clinical psychology, and social work.
