This book describes counseling techniques from a broad spectrum of theoretical approaches, and gives
mental health practitioners multiple therapy options for working with clients. It emphasizes helping clients
improve relationships - with others, themselves, their families, and their environment. Techniques are
arranged according to client issues, each offering a step-by-step guide to procedures and evaluation
methods. Finally, the book recognizes the importance of clients taking on increased responsibility for
themselves, and assists them in doing so through homework assignments and treatment planning -
reflecting alternatives and combining methods in a logical and systematic way to maximize a positive
therapeutic impact.
