Updated throughout, the Third Edition focuses on assisting clinicians further in finding their theoretical orientation in a diverse society while enjoying the self-exploration process. The authors have presented the ITS model and the STS-R at many professional conferences, incorporating the feedback into the new edition.

Recent advances in the scientific understanding of the human mind and brain along with the emphases on evidence-based practice and competency-based education are creating increasing pressures to update some of the traditional approaches to structuring and organizing education and practice in the field. There have also been many calls in recent years for a unified approach to conceptualizing professional practice in psychology. This book examines whether there exists a unified conceptual framework for the field that is firmly based on current scientific understanding regarding human development and functioning, that applies across all the clinical populations and practice areas within the field, and that would also help integrate professional psychology more fully into health care and the sciences generally. Presents a unified science-based conceptual framework for professional psychology Provides an overview of the whole treatment process as informed by a biopsychosocial approach, from intake through outcomes assessment Avoids highly technical language so that students and practitioners from across the field can follow the discussion

What Therapists Say and Why They Say It, 2nd ed, is one of the most practical and flexible textbooks available to counseling students. The new edition includes more than one hundred techniques and more than a thousand specific therapeutic responses that elucidate, in the most concrete possible way, not just why but how to practice good therapy. Transcripts show students how to integrate and develop content during sessions, and practice exercises help learners develop, discuss, combine, and customize various approaches to working with clients. The second edition is designed specifically for use as a main textbook, and it includes more detailed explanations of both different counseling modalities and the interaction between techniques and the counseling process—for example, the use of Socratic and circular questions within the art therapy process. What Therapists Say and Why They Say It, 2nd ed, is also designed to help students make clear connections between the skills they learn in prepracticum and practicum with other courses in the curriculum—especially the 8 core CACREP areas.
