The Skilled Helper has taught thousands of students a proven, step-by-step counseling process that leads to increased confidence and competence. Internationally recognized for its successful approach to effective helping, the text emphasizes the collaborative nature of the therapist-client relationship and uses a practical, three-stage framework that drives client problem-managing and opportunity-developing action.
This eleventh edition emphasizes the "power of basics," like decision-making skills, which are the key ingredients of successful therapy. You'll also gain a feeling for the complexity inherent in any helping relationship - but don't let that reality intimidate you. The authors show you how to adopt a helping process to the needs of your clients. You'll learn not just what you need to know and understand - but also what you need to DO to be an effective helper.
