An excellent companion to the best-selling THEORY AND PRACTICE OF COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY or supplement for theories or practicum courses, THE ART OF INTEGRATIVE COUNSELING, Second Edition, is part of a family of products that teaches you about the major concepts of counseling theories, how to apply those theories in practice, and how to integrate the theories in order to develop an individualized counseling style. THE ART OF INTEGRATIVE COUNSELING, Second Edition, is the first text on the market designed to help readers conceptualize the various dimensions of an integrative perspective. The second edition begins by introducing the concepts and techniques that Dr. Gerald Corey--one of the most prominent figures in the helping professions discipline--draws from his own integrative approach to counseling. It also vividly illustrates how concepts and techniques can be borrowed from a variety of theoretical models and applied to phases of the counseling process from initial to termination stages. In addition, the text offers specific suggestions to help you design a personal integrative approach that you can use as the foundation for your own counseling practice.
