Publisher Description

THE SKILLED HELPER has taught thousands of students a proven, step-by-step counseling process that equips them to become more confident and competent helpers. Internationally recognized for its successful problem-management and opportunity development approach to effective helping, the text emphasizes the collaborative nature of the therapist-client relationship and uses a practical, three-stage framework that drives client problem-managing and opportunity-developing action. As they read, students also gain a feeling for the complexity inherent in any helping relationship. In the eleventh edition, Gerard Egan and new co-author Robert J. Reese emphasize the "power of basics," which are the key ingredients of successful therapy. The authors name, simplify, clarify and organize these basics, showing students what they need to understand and DO to be effective helpers.
