Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy: Systems, Strategies, and Skills 3e by Linda Seligman and Lourie Reichenberg
Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy categorizes theories by their focus (background; emotions and sensations; thoughts; or actions). This structure helps students better understand similarities and differences among theories and provides an overarching framework that is unique to this text. The book explores both established and emerging treatment systems. Using skill development sections, diverse case studies and innovative exercises, the text moves beyond traditional texts to directly connect counseling theories to clinical practice. It reflects current knowledge about effective treatment, theories and interventions, and continually promotes readers' skill development and confidence.

What reviewers have to say about Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy:
"Seligman provides an overview of the way the book is laid out (theory, skill exercises, large and small group activities) that is a simple and effective approach to teaching counseling theories. The overview tells the students how they will incorporate theory and skill acquisition and practice. [This is] one of the reasons that I continue to use this book."
Heather Trepal, University of Texas at San Antonio
"I really like the readability of the book. It flows well. The language is engaging, and the family used throughout the examples was great."
Susan Furr, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
