Product description

From the Back Cover

This book gives away the secrets of effective counselors and therapists. The practical skills and concepts distilled in the present form, are the contributions of countless colleagues and clients who over the years have challenged the creative energies of the author. Effective Counseling Skills is designed to achieve the primary purpose of making counseling skills public knowledge in the belief that the health of society is improved when counseling is known to the most people. The style of the manual is conversational with numerous examples of the wording of therapeutic statements. Major topic areas include an explanation of the client's personal history, how to begin and deepen the counseling process, helping the client learn healthy ways of relating, skills for healing grief, working with couples, as well as practical ways to manage a counseling practice, and much more.
