Product Description

Review

"This text is superior to other skills texts in its level of depth and integration of related concepts for the beginner counselor in training.  On the other hand, Young's text manages this integrated material in a way that appropriately challenges students without overwhelming them conceptually.  A balance appears to have been achieved in this work between sophisticated presentation of related concepts and maintaining a level of readability for students who are new to the profession."  -- Professor David Duys, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale

From the Author

Designed to be reader-friendly
Learning the Art of Helping is a book for those who want to learn the basics of helping whether you plan to help as a volunteer or as a professional counselor, social worker, marriage and family therapist or psychologist.The book was written in a simple conversational style and is meant to help new helpers identify the initial hurdles they face as they learn basic building blocks. The text does go beyond these basics, however, and shows how the basic skills fit together into more complex techniques such as role-playing, assertiveness training and reframing. Throughout the book, the reader is invited to reflect on his or her learning through "Stop and Reflect" sections. At the end of each chapter, the reader has the chance to complete exercises on the skills learned in that chapter. The author invites readers to send their comments and suggestions. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

HASH(0x9c8b4eb8) out of 5 stars Dr. Young is great 12 Feb. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the second book by Dr. Young I've had to use for my master's program. He actually teaches in my counselor education program so it's interesting seeing him teach and reading his books. This book especially is really good. Compared to some other books I have to read for school it definitely keeps your attention better. And he gives examples of the different techniques which makes the concepts easier to understand.

HASH(0x9c8b4c6c) out of 5 stars I purchased the digital copy to have and read on ... 15 Jan. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased the digital copy to have and read on my new Microsoft Surface. My tablet has the Kindle app, but this book cannot be read on it because it is not supported on the Windows 8 platform. This is a serious problem for individuals who are getting newer computers that only have Windows 8. I am very unhappy that I cannot read this on the intended product and would not have ordered it in this form had I known this.
