Based on a deeply held belief that theory does matter in effective helper-client interactions, this text examines with clarity and wit fourteen theories of counseling and psychotherapy. At the beginning each chapter, readers "meet" a new client through a case example. The author then presents the theory's basic philosophical assumptions; its beliefs about what motivates human behavior; its central constructs; its picture of how humans develop; its ideas about what constitutes mental health and dysfunction; its perspective on how our relationships with those around us impact our functioning; and its view of how our behavior, thoughts, and emotion impact our functioning. Throughout each chapter, the author immediately illustrates the application of a construct or process by showing how it relates to the client case described at the beginning of the chapter, demonstrating the translation of each theory into practice.
