“Counseling and Psychotherapy: Theory and Beyond is the book that our profession needs, connecting traditional theories to contemporary approaches. Students will value the basic understanding of traditional counseling theory, and be introduced to modern counterparts.
Chapters on personal guiding theory, motivational interviewing, integrating western and eastern models, trauma-informed and neuro-informed counseling, artificial intelligence, and the book’s foundational counseling theories, add to the expected knowledge of every counseling practitioner.
I appreciate the author’s pragmatic and applied approach to traditional and contemporary counseling theory. Students will find the material immediately relatable and instructors will find the book helpful in building their classroom instruction.”
