This popular textbook has established itself as a major teaching and study tool. The second edition has been fully updated and revised and includes: updated information and references on theory, research, and practice in each of the chapters; a new chapter on Relational Theory, and newly-rewritten chapters by new authors on Cognitive-Behavioral Theory, Existential Theory, and Wraparound Services; updated information on the movement toward eclecticism, the rationale and empirical support for eclecticism, and approaches to eclecticism; further refinement of the authors' conceptualization of their generalist-eclectic approach and their particular approach to eclecticism; and updated information on direct practice theory and research that supports the authors' emphasis on relationship and other intuitive/artistic factors as a complement to the eclectic use of thoery.
