Through THE ART OF INTEGRATIVE COUNSELING, students learn how to integrate the theories to develop an individualized counseling style. Using the cases of Ruth and Stan, Corey demonstrates how concepts and techniques from a variety of theoretical perspectives can be successfully incorporated into different phases of the counseling process. In Becoming the Client sections, students are invited to put themselves in the shoes of the client while Dr. Corey applies the topics of each chapter to them.
