Written for helping professionals, Counseling Theory and Practice, 2nd edition, (PDF) explains what it means to be a useful helper, discusses foundations of classic counseling and psychotherapy theories, offers an overview of emerging theories, and provides college students the opportunity to develop their own approaches to counseling and psychotherapy practice.
The ebook is organized into four primary sections, each addressing theoretical schools. Section 1 reviews psychodynamic approaches, including Jungian therapy, psychoanalysis, and Adlerian therapy. Section 2 is dedicated to existential-humanistic approaches such as Gestalt therapy, existential therapy, and person-centered counseling, whereas Section 3 discusses cognitive-behavioral approaches, including behavior therapy, rational-emotive behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and reality therapy. Section 4 explains post-modern therapies and explores the relatively new approaches of solution-focused brief therapy, narrative therapy, and relational cultural therapy, a form of feminist therapy. The last chapter explores a number of more recent and emerging theories.
