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.
New to this Edition
- 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.
