Learning the Art of Helping: Building Blocks and Techniques emphasizes the techniques and skills necessary to be effective in the art of helping, from basic building blocks to advanced therapeutic techniques. The text is practical, innovative, and focused on the relationship between helper and client. The author incorporates the latest research on effective treatments, while offering an integrative perspective. The author’s conversational tone is appealing to students, yet the book is carefully referenced for instructors. The goal is to make beginning helpers become reflective practitioners. Stop and Reflect sections, exercises, homework, class discussion topics, and Journal Starters support this approach. The 7th Edition includes additional coverage of cultural issues in a new chapter, as well as expanded sections highlighting issues of culture in research, the therapeutic relationship, and helping skills specific to children.
