Editorial Reviews

Review

Russ Miars, Portland State, Counseling:

"I believe just the right balance of depth and breadth is developed in this text. It appears that a great deal of thoughtfulness has gone into revising the text with important reference updates and new material fully integrated into the flow of the text. The integration of the Positive Psychology constructs throughout Chs. 1-9 is very nice. The central strength of the text remains as it always has: a systematic-eclectic model of helping…. "

Stuart W. B. Evans, University of Melbourne

"This text makes experiential and intellectual contact with students and what is better, they continue to use it after they graduate…It is, and has been for 25 years, without doubt the best text of its kind in the world."

Ms. Nelica LaGro, University of East London

"The manuscript offers an extremely comprehensive account of process, skills and techniques. It would be difficult to find other publications where all these aspects covered in such a thoughtful and challenging way." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book is wonderful. It was assigned reading for a course I voluntarily took to improve my professional consulting skills. The book is full of valuable information that is easy to read yet full of depth. With some practice I have made this a regular part of my life, and my relationships both personally and professionaly have improved for it. I think everyone should read this book!

While I'm learning and practicing the helping profession, and reading the book, the content just coincides with my progress concurrently, from active listening, to probing, then challenging. With vivid examples, dialogues, readers can grasp the theory and idea in a very solid way and in my actual sessions working with my clients. The content is comprehensive and I believe it has already become a bible in the Helping Field.

Last of all, the condition of the book delivered by Amazon is excellent and I appreciate the service.

I'm reading this for class. It's well-written and an easy read, and helpful for brief psychotherapy. Very practical and solution-focused.

This is a great text for all helpers who want great skill understanding. On flipside, demand for a minimum count of verbiage is an imposition.

Through no fault of the seller/Amazon, I found out the chapters are in a different order than the newer book. It is rather complicated to take a mid-term when you can't find the information (ie: infor for chapter 4 was in chapter 8, 9 as well). So, I am purchasing a newer edition. Otherwise, for a used book, it was in good shape and delivered in a timely manner. Thanks.

The book is good for human service workers, students, or social workers. The ideas are solid for the students or workers to improve in this area.
