Corey's current, conscientious, and student-focused book introduces students to the fundamental theories and techniques of counseling

In each chapter of Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy, Seventh Edition, Corey exemplifies his integrative approach to counseling, which shows students how to draw from various theoretical models and skillfully apply them to the various phases of the counseling process. His warm, inviting writing style promotes application and self-reflection, giving students the support and encouragement they need as they formulate their own personalized style of counseling.

Comprehensive discussion of eleven theoretical orientations

Thoroughly updated and enhanced with coverage of the latest theories and techniques, Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy, Seventh Edition offers your students a comprehensive look at 11 key counseling theoretical orientations: Psychoanalytic Therapy Adlerian Therapy Existential Therapy Person-Centered Therapy Gestalt Therapy Behavior Therapy Cognitive Behavior Therapy Reality Therapy Feminist Therapy Postmodern Approaches Family Systems Therapy BONUS! A twelfth, complete chapter on Transactional Analysis, included in WebTutorTM Toolbox (FREE with your adoption!)


Each chapter follows a similar organizational format--introduction, examination of key concepts, a look at the therapeutic process and the application of its techniques and procedures, a discussion of the multicultural applications of each theory, a summary and evaluation, and a listing of references and recommended readings. Each chapter also features the case study of "Stan," in which Corey demonstrates the application of that chapter's key counseling techniques, thus helping students see the ways that the theories can be applied in real-life counseling situations. This consistent chapter structure enhances students' ability to build their understanding of foundational concepts and compare and contrast the various theories.

"A very up-to-date and comprehensive introduction to theories of counseling and psychotherapy. I especially appreciate its willingness to stay on the `cutting edge' and incorporate postmodern approaches and EMDR." --Dr. Robinder Paul Bedi, University of British Columbia

"Students love this book. They constantly comment on the organization and how interesting it is to read. " --Katheryn Dethlefsen, Ed.D., Amberton University


An entirely new chapter devoted to postmodern approaches

In response to developing trends in the counseling profession--and at the request of reviewers and users--Corey has added Chapter 13, "Postmodern Approaches," to this Seventh Edition. Using his personal yet straightforward writing style, Corey discusses postmodern theories and principles such as social constructivism, solution-focused brief therapy, and narrative therapy, showing students how they may apply these theories and principles in their future practices. Throughout the chapter narrative, Corey skillfully describes the nuances of these approaches and clarifies often-complex concepts, providing students with a secure starting point from which they can confidently extend their exploration of postmodern techniques.

Growing out of the strategic therapy orientation at the Mental Research Institute, solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) shifts the focus from problem solving to a complete focus on solutions. Steve de Shazer (with Insoo Kim Berg) initiated this shift at the Brief Therapy Center in Milwaukee in the late 1970s. Having grown dissatisfied with the constraints of the strategic model, in the 1980s de Shazer collaborated with a number of therapists, including Eve Lipchik, John Walter, Jane Peller, and Michelle Weiner-Davis, who each wrote extensively about solutionfocused therapy and started their own solution-focused training institutes. Later Scott Miller joined forces with Insoo Kim Berg (Berg & Miller, 1992; Miller & Berg, 1995), and Weiner-Davis later joined Bill O'Hanlon, who had been trained by Milton Erickson. Together this group of practitioners expanded the foundation originated by de Shazer (Nichols & Schwartz, 2001, 2002).


Key Concepts

Solution-focused brief therapy differs from traditional therapies by eschewing the past in favor of both the present and the future. It is so focused on what is possible that it has little or no interest in gaining an understanding of the problem. De Shazer (1988, 1991) suggests that it is not necessary to know the cause of a problem to solve it and that there is no necessary relationship between problems and their solutions. Gathering information about a problem is not necessary for change to occur. If knowing and understanding problems are unimportant, so is searching for "right" solutions. Any person might consider multiple solutions, and what is right for one person may not be right for others. In solution-focused brief therapy clients choose the goals they wish to accomplish in therapy, and little attention is given to diagnosis, history taking, or exploration of the problem (Bertolino & O'Hanlon, 2002; Gingerich & Eisengart, 2000; O'Hanlon & Weiner-Davis, 1989).

"At last with the publication of Jerry Corey's chapter on postmodern approaches to counseling, we have a compellingly eloquent description of the therapeutic potency of postmodern theory and practice in counseling and psychotherapy." --Gerald Monk, Ph.D., San Diego State University

POSITIVE ORIENTATION Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) is grounded on

the optimistic assumption that people are healthy and competent and have the ability to construct solutions that can enhance their lives. Regardless of what shape clients are in when they enter therapy, Berg believes clients are

"What is particularly impressive is Dr. Corey's ability to translate difficult and obscure concepts into clear, easy to understand terms. Readers will benefit from the straightforward and practical manner in which postmodern approaches are presented and applied." --Stacey L. Sinclair, Ph.D., San Diego State University

Feminist therapists have challenged and much more. sexism in diagnostic categories and have proposed alternative classifications

that reflect women's experiences. According to Enns (1993), many feminist therapists do not use diagnostic labels, or they use them reluctantly. Feminist therapists believe diagnostic labels are severely limiting for these reasons: (a) they focus on the individual's symptoms and not the social factors that cause dysfunctional behavior; (b) as part of a system developed mainly by White male psychiatrists, they may represent an instrument of oppression; (c) they (especially the personality disorders) may reinforce gender-role stereotypes and encourage adjustment to the norms of the status quo; (d) they may reflect the inappropriate application of



A metaframeworks perspective, which allows students to view family therapy through different "lenses," now lends structure to the updated and stream( y, , ) lined Chapter 14, "Family Systems Therapy." EIGHT LENSES IN FAMILY SYSTEMS THERAPY This chapter is about learning to think and practice within the multiple perspecThroughout the chapter, tives that family systems seem to require. This is no easy task! In 1992, Breunlin, Schwartz, and MacKune-Karrer (1997) introduced the concept of metaframereaders will find new works as a means for transcending the various approaches to family therapy, and references to the most they identified "six core metaframeworks" (p. 55) that function as therapeutic lenses. Taken together, these lenses provide six different perspectives from which current literature. a family system might be assessed and a "blueprint for therapy" (p. 281) developed.

The original six metaframeworks are internal family systems (or individual); sequences (or patterns of interaction); organization (of the system); developmental; multicultural; and gender. To these six lenses, we have added two more that we call the teleological (or goal-orientation) and process metaframeworks. Any or all of these eight lenses may have meaningful applications with a given couple or family. Furthermore, use of any particular lens influences and is influenced by the other seven perspectives, a feature common to all systems theories. The value of this approach is that it allows the therapist to draw on multiple perspectives rather than being locked into a single viewpoint. The lenses can be used for assessment as well as to tailor therapeutic interventions to the specific needs of the family (Carlson, Sperry, & Lewis, 1997; Goldenberg & Goldenberg, 2002). These eight lenses provide a foundation for integrating the various models of family systems therapy.

William Glasser's latest thinking on the new reality therapy informs the thoroughly updated Chapter 9, "Reality Therapy." Chapter 10 includes the latest information on applied behavioral analysis, the functional assessment model, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and multimodal therapy. It also includes a new section on the integration of behavioral techniques with contemporary psychoanalytic approaches.

Counseling students can begin to acquire a counseling style tailored to their own personality by familiarizing themselves with the major approaches to therapeutic practice. This book surveys 11 approaches to counseling and psychotherapy, presenting the basic concepts of each approach and discussing features such as the therapeutic process (including goals), the client­therapist relationship, and specific procedures used in the practice of counseling. This information will help you develop a balanced view of the major ideas of various therapists and the practical techniques they employ. I encourage you to keep an open mind and to seriously consider both the unique contributions and the particular limitations of each therapeutic system presented in Part 2. You will not gain the knowledge and experience needed to synthesize various approaches merely by completing an introductory course in counseling theory. This process will take many years of study, training, and practical counseling experience. Nevertheless, I recommend a personal synthesis as a framework for the professional education of counselors. The danger in presenting one model to which all students are expected to subscribe is that it could limit their effectiveness in working with future clients. Valuable dimensions of human behavior can be overlooked if counselors are restricted to a single theory. An undisciplined eclectic approach, however, can be an excuse for failing to develop a sound rationale for systematically adhering to certain concepts and to the techniques that are extensions of them. It is easy to pick and choose fragments from the various therapies that merely support one's biases and preconceptions. By studying the models presented here, you will learn how to integrate concepts and techniques from different approaches when defining your own personal synthesis and framework for counseling. Each therapeutic approach has useful dimensions. It is not a matter of a theory being "right" or "wrong," for every theory offers a unique contribution to understanding human behavior and has unique implications for counseling practice. Accepting the validity of one model does not necessarily imply rejecting seemingly divergent models. There is a clear place for theoretical pluralism, especially in a society that is becoming increasingly diverse.



My own philosophical orientation is strongly influenced by the existential approach. Because this approach does not prescribe a set of techniques and procedures, I draw techniques from the other models of therapy. I particularly like to use role-playing techniques. When people can reenact scenes from their lives, they often become far more involved than when they merely report anecdotes about themselves. In addition, many techniques I use are derived from cognitive behavior therapy.

"In describing this book, I would also emphasize the attention to diversity that f lows throughout the book. I would highlight both the multicultural sections and the feminist therapy approach as evidence of Corey's commitment to an inclusive approach." --Carolyn Zerbe Enns, Ph. D., Cornell College


More on the knowledge, skills, and strategies needed for effective work with diverse client populations

Throughout this Seventh Edition, Corey has enhanced the text's discussion of multicultural concerns and their relation to counseling theory and practice. Located in chapterending sections--and woven into the narrative itself--Corey's coverage features current information on therapy in cultural context, social and lifestyle issues, relational-cultural theory, "third-wave" feminist philosophies, spiritual and religious issues, and various theories' contributions to multicultural counseling.


Part of the process of becoming an effective counselor involves learning how to recognize diversity issues and shaping your counseling practice to fit the client's worldview. It is an ethical obligation for counselors to develop sensitivity to cultural differences if they hope to make interventions that are consistent with the values of their clients. The therapist's role is to assist clients in making decisions that are congruent with the clients' worldview, not to convince clients to live by the therapist's values. Diversity in the therapeutic relationship is a two-way street. Counselors bring their own heritage with them to their work, so you need to recognize the ways in which cultural conditioning has influenced the directions you take with your clients. Unless the social and cultural context of clients is taken into consideration, it is most difficult to appreciate the nature of their struggles. Indeed, some clients have a difficult time in seeking and accepting professional help. Counseling students often value characteristics such as making their own choices, expressing what they are feeling, being open and selfrevealing, and striving for independence. Yet some clients may not share these goals. Clients may be very slow to disclose and have different expectations about counseling than the therapist has. It is essential that counselors become aware of how clients from diverse cultures may perceive them as therapists, as well as how clients may perceive the value of formal helping. It is the task of counselors to determine whether the assumptions they have made about the nature and functioning of therapy are appropriate for culturally diverse populations. Clearly, effective counseling must take into account the impact of culture. Culture is, quite simply, the values and behaviors shared by a group of individuals. It is important to realize that culture refers to more than ethnic or racial heritage; culture also includes factors such as age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability, and socioeconomic status.

Integration of Multicultural Issues in Counseling

Because of the increased diversity of client problems and client populations, psychotherapy integration must include cultural factors in the assessment and treatment process. Multiculturalism is a reality that cannot be ignored by practitioners if they hope to meet the needs of their diverse client groups. "A major challenge for the field of psychotherapy will be to discover creative ways to integrate the values and worldviews of multiple cultures within the discourse of efficiency and evidence that currently dominate health care" (Norcross et al., 2002, p. 322). There is a growing movement toward creating a separate multicultural theory of counseling and therapy (Sue, Ivey, & Pedersen, 1996; Sue & Sue, 2003). However, I believe current theories can and should be expanded to incorporate a multicultural component. As I have consistently pointed out in this book, if contemporary theories do not account for the cultural dimension, they will have limited applicability in working with culturally diverse client populations. Harm can come to clients who are expected to fit all the



Contributions to Multicultural Counseling

Social constructionism is congruent with the philosophy of multiculturalism. One of the problems that culturally diverse clients often experience is the expectation that they should conform their lives to the truths and reality of the dominant society of which they are a part. With the emphasis on multiple realities and the assumption that what is perceived to be a truth is the product of social construction, the postmodern approaches are a good fit with diverse worldviews. The social constructionist approach to therapy provides clients with a framework to think about their thinking and to determine the impact their stories have on what they do. Clients are encouraged to explore how their realities are being constructed and the consequences that follow from such constructions. Within the framework of their cultural values and worldview, clients can explore their beliefs and provide their own reinterpretations of significant life events. The practitioner with a social constructivist perspective can guide clients in a manner that respects their underlying values. This dimension is especially important in those cases where counselors are from a different cultural background or do not share the same worldview as their clients. Narrative therapy is grounded in a sociocultural context, which makes this approach especially relevant for counseling culturally diverse clients. Many of the modern approaches that have been discussed in this book are based on the assumption that problems exist within individuals. Some of these traditional models define mental health in terms of dominant cultural values. In contrast, narrative therapists operate on the premise that problems are identified within social, cultural, political, and relational contexts rather

"...the text is an excellent resource for professional counselors and social workers wanting to learn more about the numerous theories available in the field of counseling and therapy. I would encourage the use of the book for every professional to increase their knowledge and skill level regarding addressing multicultural issues." --Dr. David Carter, University of Nebraska­Omaha

The Art of Integrative Counseling

ISBN: 0-534-57636-2

In this one-of-a-kind book, Corey gives practical and personal insight into how a counselor may develop his or her own integrative perspective. Illustrating his work with the case of Ruth, he demonstrates the concepts and techniques that he draws from as he uses his personal integrative approach. Along the way, Corey shows your students how to borrow concepts and techniques from a variety of theoretical models and apply them to the various phases of the counseling process. He also presents guidelines that can assist your students as they consider which key concepts and techniques to incorporate into their own practices.

"I like the fact that one case is used throughout the text with the major theories. It demonstrates how some theories are more appropriate than others when dealing with a client's issues.... Therefore, via this thorough presentation, the reader learns the theories, and gets a better understanding of how to choose theories and techniques and also what each theory might reveal about the client." --Carla D.

The text, combined with [the CD-ROM], helps students go beyond merely understanding the theories and seeing the application of them in a counseling relationship. With the addition of Case Approach to Counseling and Psychotherapy and The Art of Integrative Counseling, students have a complete package for developing an in-depth appreciation of the various counseling theories and techniques." --Beverly B.
