Counseling: A Venture in Human Freedom. Research and Services Bulletin No. 25.
Maes, Wayne R., Ed.
This monograph is intended not only to enhance the psychological freedom of children and youth, but to free the counselor to be more versatile in his counseling techniques. In Chapter One, the author deals with some of the philosophical controversy which underlies the contrasting approaches of Rogers and Skinner. In Chapter Two, Haigh portrays the impact of the existential approach in freeing people to be more creative. In Chapter Three, Krumboltz points out ways in which behavioral techniques can actually expand the number of options from which one can choose in a decision making situation. The final chapter by Keirsey shows how creative counselors can devise numerous techniques, some of which seem more existential in nature and depend upon an immediate interpersonal relationship to bring about change, some of which involve well-planned reinforcement strategies and some of which one may wish to explain through role or modeling theory.
