    Developed for helping professionals, Counseling Theory and Practice explains what it means to be an effective helper, discusses foundations of classic counseling and psychotherapy theories, provides an overview of emerging theories, and gives students the opportunity to develop their own approaches to counseling and psychotherapy practice.

    The book is organized into four primary sections, each addressing theoretical schools. Section 1 explores psychodynamic approaches, including psychoanalysis, Jungian therapy, and Adlerian therapy. Section 2 is devoted to existential-humanistic approaches such as existential therapy, Gestalt therapy, and person-centered counseling, while Section 3 discusses cognitive-behavioral approaches, including behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, rational-emotive behavior therapy, and reality therapy. Section 4 describes post-modern therapies and examines the relatively new approaches of narrative therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and relational cultural therapy, a form of feminist therapy. The final chapter explores a number of more recent and emerging theories.

    In support of the textbook, Counseling Theory and Practice features a Cognella Active Learning component that provides students with videos, reflection exercises, PowerPoint slideshows, flashcards, and quizzes in a digital environment. These additional materials give students an accessible way to study outside of the classroom in their own time and at their own pace.

    Informative and engaging, Counseling Theory and Practice is well-suited to courses for both pre-service professionals and those already in the field.

    “I’ve been using Counseling Theory and Practice by Edward Neukrug in my theory courses, and my students love the textbook. They appreciate the history included in the beginning, the great examples, and the humor throughout. Many of them say it’s just easy to read, and one of them even said each week she can’t wait to get home to read the assignment! I have never heard that from a single student about a textbook. Additionally, their ability to conceptualize using the theories is getting really strong. All around, it’s been a great experience using this book in my courses.”
