INTERPERSONAL PROCESS IN THERAPY: AN INTEGRATIVE MODEL, 7th Edition strongly focuses on the therapist-client relationship, offering students practical guidelines for how to understand and intervene with clients from the initial intake through termination. Compelling to read and discuss -- and immediately helpful with clients -- the text brings together core clinical concepts and research as well as the interpersonal/relational elements from various theoretical approaches, and clearly explains how to use the therapeutic relationship to effect change. The authors help alleviate beginning therapists' concerns about making "mistakes," teach therapists how to work with their own countertransference issues, and empower new therapists to be themselves in their counseling relationships. Featuring new case examples, updated references and research, and extended clinical vignettes, the seventh edition of this clinically authentic text brings the reader "in the room" with the therapist.

  • Available online in MindTap®, video demonstrations of the authors role-playing key concepts and prototypic therapist-client interactions help students make the transition from studying a textbook to applying clinical techniques.
  • An expanded clinical application of attachment theory helps trainees better understand the symptoms and problems their adult clients bring to treatment, how their clients interact with them during sessions, and the kinds of therapeutic responses that will be helpful and ineffective for different clients.
  • Developing therapists often struggle to shift the dialogue from everyday conversation to core concerns. This edition provides clear guidelines, along with illustrative examples, for when and how to engage clients on key feelings and concerns throughout each phase of treatment.
  • Updated throughout with new case examples and research, this edition has also been honed and pared with an eye toward being as concise as possible for busy readers.
  • A glossary of terms helps to ensure that students learn the common language of the complex yet exciting field they are entering.
  • Contemporary case studies develop multicultural awareness and demonstrate how cultural and familial context influences client presentation and treatment planning.
  • The book offers in-depth coverage of the role of attachment throughout the lifespan and the burgeoning research literature on attachment-informed therapy, including attachment-related affects (such as shame), and how clients' differing attachment styles influence the problems they bring and the way they present in treatment.
  • To help student therapists make the transition from concepts to application, extensive therapist-client dialogues and clinical vignettes in every chapter show trainees how they can move beyond surface topics and engage their clients in highly meaningful and change-producing ways.
  • Online videos of the authors role-playing important clinical concepts and prototypic therapist-client interactions accompany the text. These visual demonstrations transform the learning process.
  • This integrative text brings together the interpersonal/relational components from different theoretical approaches and provides specific intervention guidelines for using the therapist-client relationship to effect change.
  • Students will find programmatic guidelines for writing case conceptualizations/treatment plans and process notes within the interpersonal process framework.

"This book provides an excellent overview of the interpersonal process model of counseling. Grounded in the core conditions, this perspective emphasizes the importance of attending to the process dimension of how the client and counselor interact as well as the collaborative nature of counseling. This book also provides helpful tools for honoring client resistance, understanding client developmental factors, working with feelings, and addressing termination. It is a must read for educators and practitioners who want a model to conceptualize client change and growth."

"Teyber and Teyber have written an insightful and accessible text that should be made available to the widest audience of practitioners in counseling and psychotherapy."
