"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.
