Taking a very practical "how to be a psychotherapist" approach, this overview of the process of counseling provides information that is fundamental to counseling, but not representative of any one theoretical orientation. Concise, yet thorough—and accessible to novice and seasoned professional alike—it explores counseling basics (e.g., skills, relationship building) as well as specific populations (e.g., groups, clients in crisis, couples and diverse populations).

Foundation skills. The initial interview. The early phase. The middle phase. The final phase. The client in crisis. Groups and group therapy. Couple therapy. Dealing with diversity. Care and feeding of therapists.

For new and seasoned professionals in counsel and psychotherapy.


A textbook that Moursund (U. of Oregon) first published in 1985 and last revised in 1993; Kenny (Florida International U.) lends a hand for the fourth edition. Over the course of the editions, she has increasingly emphasized the importance of relationship in psychoanalytic counseling. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
