Summary

The purpose of this book is to explore and present humanistic perspectives on contemporary social and counseling issues. It will provide a single resource for counselors and therapists identifying and describing effective approaches founded on humanistic principles to use in their practice. Each chapter describes the significance of a specific counseling issue, reviews the humanistic literature on this issue, discusses the theoretical model provided by a humanistic perspective, and concludes with applications and implications for practitioners. Situations considered include marital/couples counseling, multicultural counseling, treating substance abuse and eating disorders, and healing trauma, all of which have been shown to benefit from the use of humanistic approaches. Applications in educational settings, such as addressing school violence, working with at-risk youth, and counseling in college and university settings, are also discussed. The book concludes with uses of humanistic approaches in counselor education and training.
