    The second edition of Neuroscience for Counselors and Therapists: Integrating the Sciences of the Mind and Brain presents students with an accessible, insightful discussion of the virtues and vices of integrating neuroscience into existing models of counseling practice. The text boasts an emphasis on practical application, helping readers better understand the relationship between particular theories and neuroscience, then offering guidance as to how they can incorporate this knowledge into personal practice.

    The book begins with an introduction to neuroscience and a chapter dedicated to exploring the structure and function of the brain. The four major theoretical paradigms are discussed in individual chapters, integrating neuroscience into each and demonstrating this integration through a client vignette. Four prominent disorders that appear frequently in therapy are covered in a comparative, integrative way across the four treatment paradigms.

    For the second edition, all references have been updated to reflect cutting-edge research within the discipline. Additionally, newly developed Cultural Considerations sections, which appear in each chapter, help students identify the challenges of integration as they relate to diverse populations and individual cultural experiences.

    Neuroscience for Counselors and Therapists is an innovative yet reader-friendly text that is well suited for courses in counseling and psychotherapy.

    “Counselors and therapists who wish to remain active in their practice in the future will rush to buy this important book. Chad Luke shows us the basics of neuroscience/neurobiology and then goes on to show how to use the future now in daily practice. This book is so clear that you will want to test it tomorrow. I was fascinated by the case studies and impressed with the useful integration of research, the very useful figures and charts. And you will find a beautiful and scholarly integration of the theories we use today with neuroscience. You already have a practical base in your own practice so this book will only expand your competence in change processes, but always with a solid base of relationship.”
    Dr. Allen Ivey, Distinguished University Professor Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
