In Between Therapist and Client, Michael Kahn explores what is perhaps the most important aspect of therapy -- the therapist-client relationship. As he traces the history of the clinical relationship from Freud to the present, Kahn shows how the enmity between the humanists and the psychoanalysts limited their therapeutic effectiveness -- and how their recent reconciliation has opened up exciting new possibilities for the way therapists relate to clients, pointing to a promising new period in the history of psychotherapy.

In an era of globalization characterized by widespread migration and cultural contacts, psychologists, counselors, and other mental health professionals face a unique challenge: how does one practice successfully when working with clients from so many different backgrounds? Gielen, Draguns, and Fish argue that an understanding of the general principles of multicultural counseling is of great importance to all practitioners. The lack of this knowledge can have several negative consequences during therapy, including differences in expectations between counselor and client, misdiagnosis of the client’s concerns, missed non-verbal cues, and the client feeling that she has been misunderstood. This volume focuses on the general nature of cultural influences in counseling rather than on counseling specific ethnic groups. Counseling practices from all over the world, not just those of Western society, are explored. Bringing together the work of a diverse group of international experts, the editors have compiled a volume that is not only concise and teachable, but also an essential guidebook for all mental-health professionals.

One of the most powerful factors in therapy is that it involves the intensive relationship between two (or more) human beings. The issues of transparency and self-disclosure therefore become important concerns for therapists; how can they use themselves effectively in their work without transgressing on professional regulations? These issues and concerns are addressed in this new edition of The Use of Self in Therapy by experienced therapists, who share their own wisdom, research, and experiences in valuable ways. Disregarding methodology or approach, the authors demonstrate how to train and develop the self and person of the therapist as a powerful adjunct to successful therapy. They enable practitioners to become more effective in helping their clients to realize and regain their own powers of healing and healthy recovery. This 3rd edition also examines the impact of increasing professional regulation, as well as the impact of the internet and social media on the conduct of therapy. Also new to this edition are discussions of how therapists can use themselves in cultures that are less individually-oriented. This book is a valuable addition to any therapist’s library and therapy supervisor’s teaching arsenal.

Designed to fill a gap in the literature on professional ethics for psychologists, this book covers topics typically neglected in existing books, being more radical and controversial than much of the literature in this area. Rather than take ethical pronouncements associated with some organizations as dogma not to be questioned but simply understood and observed, the editors of this Handbookhave encouraged a questioning, critical attitude. This book is therefore in part an attempt to push harder on the ethical impulse in psychologists, pushing beyond `comfort zones′ to encourage positions of moral leadership.

This book is the result of the American Psychological Association's Division of Psychotherapy (Div. 29) Task Force aimed at applying psychological science to the identification and promulgation of effective psychotherapy. Many efforts to improve therapy have focused on codifying evidence-based treatments, but in doing so have left the psychotherapeutic relationship behind. Clinical experience and research findings underscore that the therapeutic relationship accounts for as much of the outcome as particular treatments. This volume's 25 chapters identify the elements of effective therapy relationships and methods of customizing psychotherapy to each patient.

This revision of Gerald Corey’s bestselling text introduces students to the major theories of counseling (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). Corey’s eighth edition covers the major concepts of counseling theories, shows students how to apply those theories in practice, and helps them learn to integrate the theories into an individualized counseling style. Incorporating the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience, Corey offers an easy-to-understand text that helps students compare and contrast the therapeutic models. This book is the center of a suite of products that include a revised student manual, a revised casebook, a new DVD titled Theory in Practice: The Case of Stan, The Art of Integrative Counseling, and CD-ROM.
