Effective Counseling Skills Reviews:
"Wow! At first glance I thought to myself here goes another one of those books that just keeps repeating itself. But no! By the time I reached "The Counseling Session," I began to look for my credit card. This is the best Effective Counseling Skills Text Book I have ever seen. And in just a few days I will have one as well. Thanks for the heads-up, and if anyone out in cycberland hasn't purchased this book, you are missing out."
- V.G., Counselor, Texas Treatment Services, Dallas
"Loving every page as I devour every word. I'm sure you've heard this many times. Your insight is profound,challenging and stirring. By the time I had reached page 40, I had two huge realizations of my own regarding family of origin issues. I welcomed the tears of healing."
- D.R., Canada
"Very informative using down-to-earth language. This book is hands-on ready-to-use technique type of information. Nice read without a lot of clinical jargon."

"When first reading the text I was nervous about remembering everything that I was reading. The more I read the more it made sense and linked all together. I liked how it took you step by step into the situations that you may encounter. It was quite incredible how I would pause to ask a question, to have it answered only a few sentences later."
- L.M., Counselling Student, Alberta, Canada
"I immensely enjoyed reading the text book and its in-depth discussions of how to conduct a counselling session, the things to look for and what to say."
- N.K., Banff, Canada

- L.M., Ft. McMurray, Alberta
"I think the practical wording of statements given throughout the text was very helpful in providing how to effectively communicate with clients. The text was written in a very practical way and the essential skills and interventions were well written and laid out in a way that was not too complex to grasp."
- G.P., Canada
"The text was written in a clear and understandable way. It taught me a variety of subjects such as respect and dignity for all clients. It showed ways of dealing with supporting and alleviating distress."

Although, this product arrived on time, I have not found that much good use for it yet. Maybe I will try to pick it up again later.Published on June 21, 2013 by Catherine Josey
I actually ordered the PDF copy and so I tried to cancel my order of the actual book. Seller did not respond. Received book anyway. In good condition.Published on March 6, 2012 by Anonymous
