Counseling for the Real World: Case Studies Across the Curriculum
Counseling for the Real World: Case Studies Across the Curriculum bridges the gap between theory and practice by providing students with the opportunity to actively analyze true-to-life case simulations. Engaging, realistic client vignettes presented within the text reflect clinical expertise, experience, research on current clinical trends, and interviews with clinicians, supervisors, and educators. The cases challenge students to wrestle deeply with real-world client issues to better prepare for practicum and internship experiences.
The text addresses a variety of theoretical orientations, topics, and clinical settings in an integrated fashion. Each chapter is organized by student skill level and directly correlates to a CACREP core area and/or a common course taught in clinical mental health counseling programs. The chapters are divided into three topical areas: professional orientation and ethics, counseling theories and relationships, and topic and course-specific cases. Each chapter contains a beginner, intermediate, and advanced level case, along with discussion questions and application activities for each case. Topics covered include: the foundations of clinical mental health counseling, legal considerations, using counseling skills to build therapeutic rapport, multicultural competence, trauma treatment, child and adolescent counseling, career counseling, and much more.
Designed to provide students of all skill levels with meaningful insight and practice, Counseling for the Real World is ideal for clinical mental health and professional counseling preparation programs. The text features a standalone chapter for students pursuing their Ph.D. in counselor education and supervision. In addition, each chapter includes specific discussion questions and application activities related to the teaching and supervision of the cases presented within the chapter. These unique features make this textbook a valuable resource for counselor education programs at both the master’s and doctoral level.
