Good in new dust jacket. This fourth edition of Clara Hill's popular textbook updates her comprehensive exploration of basic helping skills for undergraduate and first-year graduate students. Hill's three-stage model of helping clients involves exploration, insight, and action. The exploration stage helps clients explore their thoughts and feelings. The insight stage helps clients understand the reasons for their thoughts and feelings. The action stage helps clients make desired changes in their lives. Authoritative but highly accessible, the book describes the goals and theoretical foundations of the three stages, how helpers can learn and practice the skills used in each stage, general principles for ethical practice, and important cultural issues. Hill also challenges students to think about and discuss the process of becoming helpers and their reasons for doing so. New material in this edition includes: * Chapters on self-awareness and cultural awareness * A glossary * Additional methods for challenging clients * A research summary at the end of every chapter highlighting a relevant empirical study The Instructor and Student Resource Guide Website will also be updated. The instructor section of the website is restricted to instructors only and includes sample multiple-choice questions, essay prompts, and syllabi for undergraduate and graduate courses. The student section of the website is available to all users and includes practice exercises (for individuals), lab exercises (for lab groups), and helpful forms. Two companion DVDs illustrate and provide commentary on the three-stage model of helping: Helping Skills in Practice and Dream Work in Practice. Please note that the DVDs are not available on an examination or desk copy basis for course adoption. The DVDs are available for purchase only.

This is the most brilliant book on developing counselling skills that I now possess. Lots of examples, some exercises, lots of helpful explanations. Good index, good chapter headings. I refer to it often. You can dip in and out at will. I read and re-read bits without being bored. Suitable for level 2 [if you're a book person] and level 3 [UK helping/counselling skills] at least. Because it is APA published it maintains high standards.

The book was very easy read, as plenty of examples were provided. The chapters are short yet do not leave out any relevant information. It is great for anyone wanting to become a counselor or other type of helper. The book provides practice exercises to assist in further learning. I would highly recommend this text book to anyone learning helping skills. I used it for a graduate level course, but you don't need to be in graduate school to understand and appreciate the information provided.
