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 just wanted to say how much I loved our theories text book, Counseling Theory and Practice. The examples were great and the cases really made the theories come to life. It’s not every day that you read a textbook that truly grasps your attention in a way that this theories book did. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is interested in learning about the counseling theories. For me, this book rates a 15/10!"
