Over 450 data-based studies and years of field testing attest to the effectiveness of the Microskills model in Intentional Interviewing And Counseling: Facilitating Client Development In A Multicultural Society, International Edition. This hallmark text enables students of many backgrounds to master basic skills in a step-by-step fashion, thereby rapidly empowering them to use listening and influencing skills as they conduct full interviews. Along the way, students are challenged to re-evaluate their current behaviors and perceptions. As a result, they gain valuable insight about themselves, their strengths, and the areas where they can develop further. By the time they finish reading the text, students will have the ability to adapt their skills to address both individual and multicultural uniqueness, conduct interviews using five different theoretical approaches, and be well on their way to developing a personalized style and theory of interviewing and counseling that matches their own aptitudes and affinities.
