Cognitive Behavioral Approaches for Counselors

Additional resources:


February 2015 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Written from the common factors perspective, this scholarly yet engaging book introduces the historical development, process, evaluation, and application methods of Albert Ellis’ Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and Aaron Beck’s Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). To help counselors in training apply cognitive behavioral theories to practice, the book offers specific suggestions for how a culturally competent, contemporary proponent of REBT/CBT could integrate multicultural adaptations into his or her counseling practice, provides transcripts of actual client sessions, and presents a case study that uses REBT and CBT in treatment.

Cognitive Behavioral Approaches for Counselors is part of the SAGE Theories for Counselors Series that includes Psychoanalytic Approaches for Counselors, by Frederick Redekop, and Person-Centered Approaches for Counselors, by Jeffrey H. D. Cornelius-White.
