Good value for the layperson, student, or experienced clinician. Comprehensive in the scope of the many different systems of psychotherapy (I.e. both pop-psychology, and the more scholarly rigorous psychological therapies), concise yet accurate in describing the core factors of each scholar and practitioner who dedicated themselves to the helping professions. This book also emphasises the commonalities (common factors) of counseling and psychotherapy throughout the chapters.
A good attempt at describing what has been called by clinicians "technically eclectic and transtheorectical" practice.
Easy to understand and a good "sampler" for the student or layperson, and a good reminder for those of us who have been in the industry for many years...
The synthesis of ideas and theories presented throughout the book.
Good speaker, presents himself as passionate and interested in the work himself
Yes ! Summed up as "Oh I forgot about that dude !" (good and bad ;-)
If you're interested in the scholarly field of psychology (emphasis on the little "p"), want to be a Psychologist (big "P"), Professional Licensed Counselor, Social Worker, Teacher, Nurse, or teacher. I'd start here.
