A Process for Working with Families across Counseling Specialties.
Kaplan, David M.
This chapter discusses the development of an approach to counseling that allows counselors to incorporate family counseling into their individual counseling practices. The six-stage counseling process that is presented draws upon a broad-based behavior therapy/social learning theory approach. The stages of this process are identified as: establish a relationship; assess the problem; set goals; select an intervention; assess the intervention; and reach closure. This process provides a framework for working with families across counseling specialties while utilizing the professional counseling skills that counselors already possess. (Contains 13 references.)
