Counselling Adults for Decision-Making: A Pragmatic Orientation.
Peavy, R. Vance
This textbook for counselor trainees examines three key concepts in counseling: empathy, decision-making, and learning. It is intended to be used by counselors working with adults, especially in the area of decision-making skills. The importance of the counselor's direct perception of the client's situation is emphasized along with accurate knowledge of the social contexts in which the client is living. The author provides exercises, especially in the section on empathic listening, which can be used to enhance practical learning. Specific counseling techniques are explained and theoretical considerations of decision-making are discussed. Several case studies are used as examples of the counseling techniques. (JAC)
