Thinking and Acting Like a Behavioral School Counselor

Synopsis

Thinking and Acting Like a Behavioral School Counselor by Richard D. Parsons

The books in this series represent the four key areas or theoretical constructs counsellors use when working with clients: Solution Focused, Behavioural, Cognitive, and Person-Centred. This resource provides counsellors a practical guide to learning to think and then ACT like an expert counsellor. The author focuses upon the development of the skills employed by behavioural counsellors as they process client data, develop case conceptualizations, and then formulate and implement specific treatment plans. Thinking and Acting Like a Behavioral Counselor provides extensive case illustrations and guided practice exercises to move the reader from simply 'knowing' to 'doing' and is ideal for training new and less experienced counsellors in what to say, how to say it, and why to say it.

Reviews

After reading this book, I found myself thinking more behaviorally with my interactions with students. I plan to refer back to this book for ideas for fine-tuning some of what I do. -- Cynthia Knowles, Prevention Specialist This is the go-to training manual for those who received minimal behavioral exposure in their counseling program. -- Katy Olweiler, Counselor
