Assessment in Rehabilitation and Health is the first and only text tailored specifically for students seeking a structured foundation of knowledge of tests and related assessment practices commonly used by health professionals in their various fields. While other textbooks commonly used in this area of study often offer a broader and more sweeping look at assessment practices and theories, Assessment in Rehabilitation and Health focuses closely on the standardized and clinical methods of health assessment in regards to rehabilitation counseling, communication and speech disorders, occupational therapy, neuropsychology, physiotherapy, and physical medicine. Each chapter is structured using the common framework provided by the World Health Organization's International Classification of Disability, Functioning and Health (ICF). This framework, which is considered the gold standard by numerous health institutions around the world in regards to concepts and practices in rehabilitation and health, allows students to gain knowledge and learn practices that are consistent with this widely accepted and highly regarded ICF model. These chapters not only follow this framework, but are also all organized to include the following topics: professional and legal definitions and theories that form the foundation for assessment methods; a brief history of the research and practice methods pertinent to each chapter topic; a listing of assessment methods commonly used in rehabilitation and health related practices; and a discussion of cultural, legislative, and professional issues that impact the use of the specific assessment methods.

Wayne Perry has been a therapist for more than thirty years, but he still hears the same thing from beginning counselors and therapists: Yes, I know what the theory says, but what do I do with this particular client? Drawing on his decades of experience training marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, and pastoral counselors, he answers that question in the updated edition of his landmark book: Basic Counseling Techniques. He provides practical suggestions for setting up the therapy room, using audiovisual recording equipment, and conducting those first critical interviews. You'll learn how to: apply nine different sets of clinical tools; select the appropriate tool for the appropriate clinical situation; and improve how you carry out the clinical thinking process. Each chapter concludes with a "Living into the Lesson" section that allows you to participate in experiential exercises to master what you've learned. While designed for counselors and therapists in the beginning of their careers, even veterans in the field will find value in this updated edition.

Incorporating the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience, the ninth edition of Corey's best-selling text offers an easy-to-understand text that helps students compare and contrast the therapeutic models expressed in counseling theories. Corey introduces students to the major theories (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist, and postmodern approaches) and demonstrates how each theory can be applied to a single case (Stan). With his trademark style, he shows students how to apply those theories in practice, and helps them learn to integrate the theories into an individualized counseling style. This book is the center of a suite of products that includes a revised student manual, Case Approach to Counseling and Psychotherapy (2013), The Art of Integrative Counseling (2013) and media resources like the DVDs titled DVD for Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy: The Case of Stan and Lecturettes, and DVD for Integrative Counseling: The Case of Ruth and Lecturettes, which features the same videos as the Integrative Counseling CD-ROM redesigned for today's classrooms.
