About

Overview

One of the first books in the field of counseling to use a competency-based approach for teaching counseling and psychotherapy theories, Gehart's text is designed to teach the skills and knowledge outlined in current CACREP Standards. Featuring state-of-the-art, outcomes-based pedagogy, the text introduces counseling and psychotherapy theories using theory-informed case conceptualization as well as treatment planning. Assignments empower students to apply theoretical concepts and develop real-world skills as early as possible in their training, resulting in greater mastery of the material.

Features and Benefits

  • Using state-of-the-art pedagogical methods, THEORY AND TREATMENT PLANNING IN COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY is part of a new generation of textbooks specifically designed to thoughtfully promote student mastery of the material while enabling faculty to easily measure student learning outcomes.
  • Rather than delivering content in a traditional narrative style, the text engages students in an active learning process that uses outcomes-based pedagogy. More specifically, it introduces counseling and psychotherapy theories using two clinically relevant assignments: theory-informed case conceptualization and theory-specific treatment planning. These assignments empower students to apply theoretical concepts and develop real-world skills as early as possible in their training, resulting in greater and quicker mastery of the material.
  • The author uses a friendly style to explain concepts in clear and practical language that contemporary students appreciate.
  • Instructors benefit from the simplicity of having the text and assignments work seamlessly together, thus requiring less time on class preparation and grading. The extensive set of instructor materials--including syllabi templates, detailed PowerPoint® slides, test banks, online lectures, and scoring rubrics designed for accreditation assessment--further reduce educators' workloads.

What's New

  • Expanded Diversity Sections: Diversity sections in each theory chapter now include practical applications of the theory with specific diverse populations, including individuals from special ethnic/racial groups as well as LGBTQ clients. Expanded sections on specific populations--including African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Asian Americans, Native Americans/First Nations/Aboriginals, gay men, lesbians, and gay and transgendered youth--provide detailed suggestions, adaptations, and cautions for using a given theory with a specific population.
  • New Chapter on Trauma-Related Evidence-Based Treatments: A new chapter (Chapter 10) discusses evidence-based cognitive behavioral treatments (CBT), specifically, dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT) and trauma-focused CBT for children. Both approaches are used extensively with clients who have experienced childhood and complex trauma.
  • Theory-Specific Case Conceptualization Templates: Each theory chapter now includes a theory-specific case conceptualization outline that students and therapists can use to develop case conceptualizations using a single theory. This conceptualization can be used to create a theory-specific treatment plan. Each chapter also presents a sample theory-specific case conceptualization as part of the case study.
  • Revised Case Conceptualization and Treatment Plan Forms: The cross-theoretical case conceptualization and treatment plan forms have been revised to be more succinct and easier to use. Digital forms are available for download.
  • Separate Jungian Chapter: Jungian analysis is now covered in a separate chapter (Chapter 4), and includes a case study.
  • Practice Exercises: "Try it yourself" exercises throughout the text give students hands-on practice using assessment and intervention techniques.
  • Questions for Reflection and Class Discussion: Each chapter includes a new section designed to engage students more thoughtfully in the material by promoting personal reflection and class discussion.
