Transcripts show students how to integrate and develop content during sessions, and practice exercises help learners develop, discuss, combine, and customize various approaches to working with clients.

It is filled with numerous examples and practical advice that make it a valuable text for counseling students, practicing counselors, and counselor educators."—Howard Kirschenbaum, EdD, author of The Life and Work of Carl Rogers and Values Clarification in Counseling and Psychotherapy
