Applied Helping Skills by Leah Brew

Book Description

This book covers the basic skills necessary to serve and help clients in a therapeutic relationship. It takes an experiential, student-centered approach and reflects upon therapy as an art, rather than just a diagnostic tool. This helps students understand that a skilled therapist looks at every situation and person differently and draws on their embedded skills to best serve the client. The skills covered include listening, building and maintaining relationships, establishing trust, assessing and diagnosing client issues, exploring and collecting meaningful information, moving from insight to action, reading verbal and nonverbal behavior, among others.
