I’m someone who loves both REBT & Gestalt therapy, and Imapacy therapy combines these theories so well. It is an awesome read for students, new practitioners, and even those who have been in the counseling field a long time. This book provides a lot of new & useful information.
The book also reads easily thus making it an attractive resource for the beginning counselor. The experienced counselor can also find this resource helpful, in that this book also provides one with additional, creative ideas and interventions to add to his or her own "tool box."
Certainly, as counselors, we are sometimes overwhelmed with new information and readings regarding developing models, theories, and ideas, however, this book is definitely a rich resource to include and make as a priority to add onto that "to-read" list.
