This comprehensive overview grounded in the theory and research of the counseling process explores the "how" of counseling, offering readers in-depth coverage of the varied skills they will need to form effective therapeutic relationships with those who come to them for assistance. Speaking directly to helpers-in-training with compassion and humor, Ira David Welch and David Gonzalez cover virtually everything beginning counselors need to know before meeting their first clients. The authors provide both the attitudinal conditions that are important for effective counseling and psychotherapy, as well as the concrete, step-by-step procedures that developing counselors need to master. Ideal for stand-alone use or in conjunction with The Path of Psychotherapy: Matters of the Heart, Welch's companion volume, this is one book you won't want your students to miss.
