A practical text that provides a look at basic helping skills used in a variety of disciplines and a number of issues common to helping relationships, processes, and interviews.

Suitable for both upper-level undergraduate and entry-level graduate students, the text focuses on skill acquisition, and includes a number of clinical cases and application exercises for promoting skill development.

Additional content new to this edition covers counseling in military settings, communication with LGBTQ clients, communication with immigrant and refugee clients, assessment of key components of client problems, SMART goals, and mindfulness interventions.

  • Learning Outcomes and Standards measure student results. MyCounselingLab organizes all assignments around essential learning outcomes and national standards for counselors.
  • Video- and Case-based Assignments develop decision-making skills. Video- and Case-based Assignments introduce students to a broader range of clients, and therefore a broader range of presenting problems, than they will encounter in their own pre-professional clinical experiences. Students watch videos of actual client-therapist sessions or high-quality role-play scenarios featuring expert counselors. They are then guided in their analysis of the videos through a series of short-answer questions. These exercises help students develop the techniques and decision-making skills they need to be effective counselors before they are in a critical situation with a real client.
  • Licensure Quizzes help students prepare for certification. Automatically graded, multiple-choice Licensure Quizzes help students prepare for their certification examinations, master foundational course content, and improve their performance in the course.
  • Video Library offers a wealth of observation opportunities. The Video Library provides more than 400 video clips of actual client-therapist sessions and high-quality role plays in a database organized by topic and searchable by keyword. The Video Library includes every video clip from the MyCounselingLab courses plus additional videos from Pearson’s extensive library of footage. Instructors can create additional assignments around the videos or use them for in-class activities. Students can expand their observation experiences to include other course areas and increase the amount of time they spend watching expert counselors in action.
  • Comprehensive online course content. Filled with a wealth of content that is tightly integrated with your textbook, MyLab lets you easily add, remove, or modify existing instructional material. You can also add your own course materials to suit the needs of your students or department. In short, MyLab lets you teach exactly as you'd like.
  • Robust gradebook tracking. The online gradebook automatically tracks your students' results on tests, homework, and practice exercises and gives you control over managing results and calculating grades. The gradebook provides a number of flexible grading options, including exporting grades to a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel. And, it lets you measure and document your students' learning outcomes.
