Learn the various counseling theories through authentic examples led by actual practitioners working with real clients
This comprehensive two-DVD set promotes student learning by illustrating each of the counseling theories covered in the textbook Counseling and Psychotherapy Theories in Context and Practice, Second Edition by John and Rita Sommers-Flanagan. However, the DVDs can be used in conjunction with this text or as a stand-alone teaching tool in any course covering psychotherapy theories and techniques.
Unique in its presentation of real clinicians from a variety of work settings—including school and college counselors—working with actual clients, the DVDs:
- Feature practitioners and clients who represent ethnic, gender, age, and religious diversity
- Model how to develop a positive therapeutic relationship from any theoretical perspective
- Help students not only understand the differences between theories, but also the difference between theory and technique
- Offer commentary by the authors on how the counselor in the session made decisions from a theoretical perspective as well as why a particular counseling theory was appropriate for the client’s situation
Exploring Psychoanalytic, Adlerian, Existential, Person-Centered, Gestalt, Behavioral, Cognitive-Behavioral, Reality, Feminist, Solution-Focused, and Family Systems theories, these two DVDs shed light on these theories in real practice with clients.
