Description : Introduction to Counseling by Michael Scott Nystul provides an overview of counseling and the helping professions from the perspective of art and science—the science of counseling that generates a knowledge base proven to promote competency and efficacy in the practitioner, and the art of using this knowledge base to build skills that can be applied sensitively to clients in a multicultural society. The Fifth Edition has been organized into three sections: (1) an overview of counseling and the counseling process, (2) multicultural counseling and counseling theories, and (3) special approaches and settings. It continues to address key topics and issues, including gender, culture, and sexual orientation, and offers ways to integrate multiculturalism into all aspects of counseling, rather than view it as a separate entity. Highlighting emerging trends and changes in ethical codes, as well as reflecting the latest updates to the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-5), the book successfully illustrates the importance of art and science to modern-day counseling.

Description : This project is literary review of current neuroscience research that can document the impact of counseling. Neuroscience is providing support for the counseling process. The research findings of neural plasticity offer promising support for the therapeutic process. While counseling offers a new environment in which a person can re-learn, neural plasticity proves that at the neural network level these possibilities are now a reality. Counseling does, in fact, help change the brain.

Description : Practical Neurocounseling demonstrates the importance of considering brain health in counseling, showing mental health professionals how to understand and assess the functioning of different parts of the brain without sophisticated software or intensive training.

The interventions provided in each chapter are gender and culturally neutral, with easy-to-follow directions for application. LORETA brain maps for each of the 19 brain sites help identify brain locations to brain function and areas of dysregulation, and corresponding step-by-step interventions can be used to regulate sites and behaviors.

It’s also an ideal book for professors and students in any neurocounseling course and for clinicians working in talk therapy.

Description : Integrating Neurocounseling in Clinical Supervision provides an indispensable framework for understanding supervision using neuroscience. Chapters explore a range of topics, from basic neuroanatomy to the complexities of the default mode network. Beginning with overviews of supervision and of common challenges and ethical concerns, the book presents five supervision models, allowing the supervisor to select the best fit for each supervisee and each question. By combining supervision theory, practical applications, discussion questions, and case studies and demonstrations, the authors prepare counselors to be more intentional about brain functions to increase the efficacy of supervision. New video demonstrations available on the companion website emphasize client outcomes for each of the five supervision models and one group counseling scenario, connecting directly to chapter content and demonstrating the major elements of each model.

Description : Thought leaders examine social justice counseling from a global perspective in the latest edition of this pioneering book. Part 1 examines the historical and contemporary context of social justice counseling. Part 2 presents ideas for promoting social justice and challenging oppression and marginalization with individual clients and communities. Topics in this section include perspectives on peace, violence, and conflict; recommendations for global initiatives in school counseling; advocacy for decent work; promoting gender equity; fighting racism; and implementing social action strategies with LGBTQ+ communities, older people, people with disabilities, and undocumented immigrants. Part 3 contains chapters on the role of neuroscience in advancing social justice and infusing social justice perspectives in ethics, research, and counselor training. "This third edition could not come at a better time given the current national and global political climates. Lee and his colleagues raise the bar, challenging counselors to move from simply understanding social injustice to engaging in actions that improve systemic inequities. The magnitude of this charge cannot be ignored. This text should be mandatory in every counselor education program in the United States and across the globe; the time is now. Counselors must take the lead by leaning in and changing the world one person at a time, one community at a time, and one nation at a time." —Colleen R. Logan, PhD, Fielding Graduate University "Courtland Lee continues to be a leader in helping to advance social justice in the counseling profession. This book builds on previous editions by offering new and emerging strategies for implementing social justice with clients and communities. It pushes the limits of what is possible when counselors incorporate social justice into their practice." —Manivong J. Ratts, PhD, Seattle University "This text provides crucial information on how counselors can engage in social justice work throughout their practice, research, and advocacy activities to not only become effective change agents but also transform how we see ourselves and the world." —Anneliese A.

Description : “Now more than ever, this text is needed. The authors do a wonderful job of tackling the topics most critical in counseling trauma survivors. The resilience-based perspective and the focus on prevention is refreshing and reinforces the idea that people are survivors who are able to thrive even in the darkest and most difficult of times. This book is essential reading for all counselors.” —Victoria E. Kress, PhD, Youngstown State University “This book provides an exceptional review of the contemporary sociopolitical issues, historical perspectives, and clinical skills critical to effective crisis and trauma healing. Incorporating issues of power, privilege, culture, ecological context, and relational dynamics affords a unique perspective and makes this resource a must for anyone working in the area of trauma and crisis.” —Frederic P. Bemak, EdD, Professor Emeritus, George Mason University, Founder and Director, Counselors Without Borders This introductory text integrates evidence-based models and best practices with relational-cultural theory, which is responsive to the many forms of traumatic stress and tragedies that clients experience. It is a unique contribution that emphasizes the power of the connections counselors form with clients and communities in crisis and the means by which counselors can intervene, inspire growth, and promote healing during times of tragedy and loss. Readers will gain vital skills as they learn real-life approaches to crisis work with diverse populations in a variety of settings, including individuals, families, communities, students, military personnel, violence survivors, and clients who are suicidal.

Description : "When I used it, I felt it was a very valuable resource, linking work with the arts to the theoretical foundations of counseling."--Sally S. Atkins, EdD Professor Emerita Founding Director of Expressive Arts, Appalachian State "They [Students] like the activities since it helps them learn more about the counseling theory which was discussed in the Theories of Counseling class. It provides more application. Some activities are pretty detailed and class time does not allow for much practice. But, we discuss how this could be used in therapy sessions/groups... [The book] is short and very pointed in its information and use. We like it!"--Judy A. Schmidt, EdD, CRC, LPCA University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Expanded and revised to reflect a broader understanding of the complementary approach to therapeutic treatment, this is the only text to integrate expressive arts counseling techniques with major theories of counseling and psychology. Substantial changes to the second edition include new chapters that address Neuroscience and Counseling, Trauma-Informed Counseling, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Mindfulness and Counseling, and Family Counseling, along with a greater emphasis on cultural and diversity considerations throughout. The book is updated with over 30 new interventions including animal-assisted and videographic interventions, and new information about the neuroscientific foundations of expressive arts therapies. Updated references in each chapter, and a suite of Instructor’s Materials also add to value of the second edition.
