This book gives detailed descriptions of many of the most common/well-known counseling theories. This is the second theories book that I have had to use in my course of study and it is by far the better of the two. I am not finished with the entire book yet, but there does not seem to be any clear basis towards any one theory so far. There is detail about the history of the developer of the theory/theory itself, practical applications for current populations and methods utilized for each of the theories in this book.
This book captures both the best and worse of the college textbook market. It is extremely informative, providing a thorough overview of each major school of counseling and psychotherapy. It is also faithful to provide a balanced look at each system's weaknesses and strengths, and the structure of the text is consistent throughout, enabling the reader to quickly reference and summarize the information contained in each chapter.

That being said, the book is as dry as dirt; there are few images, few meaningful text interactions (questions or otherwise), and a technical writing style that makes minimal effort at engaging the reader. Most students will struggle to read more than a few pages at a time. The book functions much better as an occasional reference text rather than a book to be read through by a class or interested student.
Rented this title for a class on counseling theories. Content heavy but once you understand the structure of chapters, it is invaluable in terms of understanding the origins, applications, and techniques involved with each theory.
I got a different version. Not a different edition but a different version than the cover advertised. Mine s a brown cover with drama masks. However the material is the same as this blue cover (compared to a fellow classmates book which has this cover). hence reason for 4 star and ot 5. CAME on time and is a great source for info.
good book
Doesn't look like the picture on the order, however the content appears to be the same at a better price.
Although it is not the book that I needed it still have the same content.
Great resource!
