Advanced Skills and Interventions in Therapeutic Counseling is written for advanced students and professionals. It provides the reader with an understanding of the personality and reviews fundamentals of the counselling process, such as the set up of the counselling room, attending behaviour, and advanced active listening skills. It gives the reader a means to assess clients so the direction of therapy is clear, and it provides illustrations for each general direction of the therapeutic process.

Unlike the DSM-R where clients are diagnosed into categories, the counselling assessment procedure provided in this book assesses each client issue into a category. Client problems are presented as falling into two main divisions, internal dissent and situational concerns, and into a number of subdivisions. A flowchart is provided to assist counsellors to determine the best direction for therapy for each issue. Then clearly illustrated counselling interventions are presented to demonstrate the various directions therapy may take. Among the therapeutic interventions that are covered and illustrated are depression, sexual abuse, relationship issues, obsessive compulsive behaviour, anger, trauma, crisis intervention, grief and loss, and suicidal ideation.

There is a cause for every unwanted emotion or reaction. This book is about understanding these causes and facilitating change.
