About

Overview

With this acclaimed casebook, readers follow master teacher Gerald Corey and many of contemporary therapy's most highly respected founders and practitioners--including William Glasser, Arnold Lazarus, and Albert Ellis--as they apply eleven key counseling approaches to the needs of client Ruth. This focus on a single client demonstrates to readers how the various theories work, and also enables them to see exactly how these techniques differ.

Features and Benefits

  • CASE APPROACH TO COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY, Eighth Edition, brings together more than twenty outside practitioners who are experts in their fields to apply their particular theory to one single client--Ruth.
  • By applying each theory to the same client, Dr. Corey helps readers conceptualize the differences among theoretical models. Case material and discussions by leading practitioners illustrate how they work with Ruth based on their theoretical model. Dialogue between the consulting therapist and the client offers a comprehensive picture of how consultants apply their theory to Ruth's case.
  • The "DVD for Integrative Counseling: The Case of Ruth and Lecturettes" shows Gerald Corey working with Ruth, using various theoretical models and techniques. It includes discussion and commentary by Dr. Corey, explaining important concepts and incorporating a process dialogue discussing why a particular approach was used with Ruth in the session. It features the same content as the Integrative Counseling CD-ROM (2005) reformatted for today's classroom. For students who prefer to access the same videos online, a Premium Website is available.
  • Reflection questions in each chapter encourage readers to apply the material to their personal lives and provide guidelines to them for continuing to work with Ruth in the particular theoretical orientation.
