Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy by Gerald Corey
Nine theories of counselling are presented in this volume, which aims to help students develop a personalized style of counselling that incorporates the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience. The nine theories are discussed and then the author demonstrates how each theory can be applied to a single case. There are chapters on psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior therapies, and family systems therapy. Ethical issues in counselling practice, including dual relationships, the role of codes of ethics, and guidelines for making ethical decisions, are also included. A common format in theory chapters and summary tables and other integrating materials in a synthesis chapter, is used to help students compare and contrast the nine approaches.
