Corey introduces students to the major theories (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist, and postmodern approaches) and demonstrates how each theory can be applied to a single case ("Stan"). With his trademark style, he shows students how to apply those theories in practice, and helps them learn to integrate the theories into an individualized counseling style. This book is the center of a suite of products that includes a revised student manual, "Case Approach to Counseling and Psychotherapy" (2013), "The Art of Integrative Counseling" (2013) and media resources like the DVDs titled "DVD for Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy: The Case of Stan and Lecturettes", and "DVD for Integrative Counseling: The Case of Ruth and Lecturettes", which features the same videos as the Integrative Counseling CD-ROM redesigned for today's classrooms.Read Less

The picture has changed since I purchased this book...and it's still not the correct one. The original image was for the eighth edition...and I received the fourth edition. Now the image is for the fifth edition. Better get that fixed.

This book is an excellent summary from the author's bird-eyes view about the theories and the possible difficulties in the practice of counseling. Ther are no prescription, no absolute truths, and no ready solutions, but it encourages you to think, and use all of your assets what you already have, as well as encourages you to develop your own personality in order to help develop clients.

I was surprised when the book arrived. It was in almost new conditions with no markings or damage on the inside. Considering that this is an older text book, I was surprised. There were no problems with the delivery and the book arrived sooner than expected. I would order from this dealer again.

The text book was in good quality. A lot cheaper than going to the campus book store. When you are paying for college every little cent that is saved is a blessing.
