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 has been developed to teach the skills and knowledge outlined in the CACREP 2009 Standards. More specifically, the text introduces counseling and psychotherapy theories using theory-informed case conceptualization as well as treatment planning. The book's 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

  • To provide readers with a thorough understanding of theory and practice, Gehart covers traditional counseling theories as well as newer, evidenced-based treatments and practices. Rather than presenting theories in the traditional historical fashion, theories are introduced from a practical perspective, emphasizing current applications and treatment planning.
  • Assessments with scoring rubrics, integrated within the text, allow faculty to easily measure students' mastery of required competencies and learning outcomes. These rubrics define expectations for content and quality, thus helping students have a clear sense of what is required of them.
  • Gehart's warm, collegial writing style draws students into the topic at hand and helps them see how it relates to them personally.
