Thinking and Acting Like a Cognitive School Counselor
- Richard D. Parsons - West Chester University of Pennsylvania, USA
Thinking and Acting Like a Cognitive Counselor provides counsellors with a practical guide for learning to think and then ACT like an expert counsellor.
The author focuses upon the development of the skills employed by cognitively oriented counsellors as they process client data, develop case conceptualizations, and then formulate and implement specific treatment plans.
The book 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.
"The author successfully leads the school counselor through this counseling approach in a manner that helps the school counselor easily use this approach effectively with students."
"The book provides a wealth of practical scenarios to demonstrate the application of a cognitive orientation framework to school counseling."
