The heart of counseling: a guide to developing therapeutic relationships
With a unique emphasis on the bond between client and counselor, Cochran and Cochran's counseling skills text teaches students concrete and detailed steps for developing the therapeutic relationship. Each of the book's thirteen chapters addresses a specific therapeutic relationship skill-builder: how to listen therapeutically; how to strive for empathy; how to express empathy; how to strive for unconditional positive regard; the art of being genuine; getting started with new clients; the ongoing structuring of the therapeutic relationship; helping clients get started; managing client crises with therapeutic relationship skills; ending therapeutic relationships; considerations for providing therapeutic relationships across cultures; and using therapeutic relationships in non-counseling situations.
