Incorporating the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience, the tenth edition of Corey's best-selling text helps you compare and contrast the therapeutic models expressed in counseling theories. Corey introduces you to the major theories (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist, postmodern, and integrative approaches) and demonstrates how each theory can be applied to two cases ("Stan" and "Gwen"). He shows you how to apply theories in practice, and helps you learn to integrate the theories into an individualized counseling style. New learning objectives identify key aspects of each theory and focus your study.

The cases of Stan and Gwen are illustrated with the therapists working from an integrative perspective. Summary charts allow for comparisons among the theories. New and expanded topics include the central role of the client in determining therapy outcomes, the case for practice-based evidence rather than evidence-based practice, and the trend toward accountability in counseling.
