Written by practitioners for practitioners, this volume offers counselors and therapists a practical guide to cognitive-behavioral counseling. Using carefully selected illustrations and examples, the authors trace the appropriate steps at different stages in the counseling process. Merging practice and theory, they demonstrate how the counselor or therapist can help a client cope independently with given problems. The step-by-step approach presented in this volume is supported by easily accessible resource material, particularly on the two most significant aspects of cognitive-behavioral counseling: methods of intervention and the setting of homework. In addition, suggestions are offered on applying this approach to specific emotional problems including anxiety, depression, anger/aggression, shame, and guilt.
