Thinking and Acting Like a Behavioral School Counselor

Edited by:

Other Titles in:
School Counseling

July 2009 | 176 pages | Corwin
The books in this series represent the four key areas or theoretical constructs counsellors use when working with clients: Solution Focused, Behavioural, Cognitive, and Person-Centred.

This resource provides counsellors a practical guide to learning to think and then ACT like an expert counsellor. The author focuses upon the development of the skills employed by behavioural counsellors as they process client data, develop case conceptualizations, and then formulate and implement specific treatment plans.

Thinking and Acting Like a Behavioral Counselor provides extensive case illustrations and guided practice exercises to move the reader from simply 'knowing' to 'doing' and is ideal for training new and less experienced counsellors in what to say, how to say it, and why to say it.
