A Guide to Thinking and Acting Like an Expertleads counselors and counseling students through the step-by-step process of receiving client information, synthesizing the data, and understanding how to respond and act effectively. With a central focus on this procedural knowledge, this guide also concentrates on developing the skills needed to build client relationships in order to elicit helpful client disclosure, and, ultimately, become an ldquo;expertrdquo; counselor who can extract the important information from a situation and move from the lsquo;ifrsquo; of the client data to the lsquo;thenrsquo; of an intervention or solution.

Richard D. Parsons , PhD, is a full professor in the Department of Counselor Education, at West Chester University. He has over 37 years of university teaching in counselor preparation programs. He has been the recipient of many awards and honors, including the Pennsylvania Counselor of Year award, and has authored or co-authored over 80 professional articles, book chapters, and books. His most recent books include Counseling Theory: Guiding Reflective Practice in 2014, Becoming a Skilled Counselor in 2013 (both with SAGE), and a series of four training texts for school counselors grouped under the title, Transforming Theory into Practice (Corwin Press). Additional recent works include Fundamentals of the Helping Process (Waveland Press), Counseling Strategies That Work!: Evidence-Based for School Counselors (Allyn & Bacon), and Counseling Strategies and Intervention Techniques (Allyn & Bacon). His current project finds him editing a 35-book series for SAGE Publications, 11 of which cover the common core competencies for counselor preparation as outlined by the Council for the Accreditation of Counselor Education and Related Programs (CACREP), with the remaining books targeting specialty areas.
