In this nationally acclaimed casebook, you'll follow master teacher Gerald Corey and many of the most highly respected founders and practitioners in contemporary therapy today as they apply eleven counseling approaches to the needs of "Ruth." Organized to enable different theories to be compared easily, each theory chapter in Case Approach to Counseling and Psychotherapy includes a discussion of the theory's basic assumptions, an initial assessment of Ruth, the goal of therapy, and an in-depth examination of the therapeutic procedures to be used.
