Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy Book Excerpt:

This clear, engaging, and accessible counseling theories text offers comprehensive and integrative coverage of the major theoretical approaches, as well as several emerging approaches. The text provides not only the background counselors need to understand the theoretical approaches but also numerous cases, examples, and therapeutic techniques to illustrate how to apply each theoretical approach. Unlike similar texts where integration is discussed in a separate chapter, this text covers integration in every chapter to address integrating each specific theory with other approaches (e.g., page 57). Every chapter includes a section discussing multicultural and diversity effectiveness for that theoretical approach (e.g., page 52). Each chapter covering theoretical approaches (Chapters 2-14) begins with a discussion on the historical context and background of the theory, as well as background on the theorist (e.g., page 21). An overview of outcome research, along with a summary of a sample research study, is included for every theoretical approach (e.g., page 58). This is the only counseling theory text available that includes a chapter on Psychopharmacological (Biological) Approaches (Chapter 14).

Theories of Counseling and Therapy An Experiential Approach Book Excerpt:

This unique review of therapeutic theories gives students knowledge and skills for clinical practice while presenting key concepts that are immediately and directly applicable to their lives. Thus, Theories of Counseling and Therapy: An Experiential Approach bridges the gap between complex models of counseling and psychotherapy and students' own personal experiences. Readers are introduced to key ideas and concepts in the discipline and encouraged to apply them in meaningful ways as they learn. The text introduces students to theoretical "families," since many strict boundaries between approaches have softened in recent years. This approach helps students learn the material strategically, as it facilitates the linking of related concepts from different approaches. In addition to studying "classic" theories of counseling and therapy, students are introduced to more contemporary and cutting-edge approaches that take into account a greater diversity of needs among client populations. Additionally, students are provided with illustrative cases, stories, and narratives from beginning practitioners, seasoned experts, and the personalities behind the theories. They will also learn about integrative and pragmatic models that take into account the importance of cultural, worldview, spirituality, and gender sensitivity within the helping professions. This thoroughly revised and updated third edition features new applications of theories to populations with particular needs, expanded information on the translation of theoretical knowledge into practice plans and treatment goals, critical thinking exercises, and more. Both practical and personal in nature, Theories of Counseling and Therapy is well-suited to courses in counseling and psychotherapy theory. Jeffrey A. Kottler is one of the most prominent authors in the fields of counseling, psychotherapy, health, and education, having written over 100 books across a broad range of topics. He is a clinical professor in the Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and professor emeritus of counseling at California State University, Fullerton.

Measuring the Effects of Racism Book Excerpt:

A large body of research has established a causal relationship between experiences of racial discrimination and adverse effects on mental and physical health. In Measuring the Effects of Racism, Robert T. Carter and Alex L. Pieterse offer a manual for mental health professionals on how to understand, assess, and treat the effects of racism as a psychological injury. Carter and Pieterse provide guidance on how to recognize the psychological effects of racism and racial discrimination. They propose an approach to understanding racism that connects particular experiences and incidents with a person’s individual psychological and emotional response. They detail how to evaluate the specific effects of race-based encounters that produce psychological distress and possibly impairment or trauma. Carter and Pieterse outline therapeutic interventions for use with individuals and groups who have experienced racial trauma, and they draw attention to the importance of racial awareness for practitioners. The book features a racial-trauma assessment toolkit, including a race-based traumatic-stress symptoms scale and interview schedule. Useful for both scholars and practitioners, including social workers, educators, and counselors, Measuring the Effects of Racism offers a new framework of race-based traumatic stress that helps legitimize psychological reactions to experiences of racism.
