Excellent resource - but not on Kindle
By Susy C
I found this to be an excellent resource of information, particularly the various therapeutic approaches. However, I was extremely disappointed that I had ordered via my Kindle rather than hard copy. The charts provided in the book are not legible in the Kindle edition and for $80+, I felt cheated from crucial study material contained in the compact format of the various charts.

Corey's Theory & Practice of Counseling & Psychotherapy
By Markella Kaplani
This is an excellent book, and probably the best of its kind. It guides you through the various approaches to psychotherapy, giving you all the details necessary for you to comprehend each method fully as well as to compare the methods with one another. The comparison becomes even easier as Corey presents the case of "Stan" at the end of each chapter and demonstrates how each approach would deal with his dilemma. I think this book is interesting for anyone who likes psychology and psychotherapy, but is a must for people looking to go into the profession of psychotherapy in order to attain a broad perspective about techniques and approaches that may be employed according to one's personality and style, as well as each unique client's needs..

Great Text for Counseling Students
By B. Pitt
I was assigned this text for my Theories of Counseling class my first semester in graduate school. Corey does a great job of breaking down 14 different therapeutic theories into their most basic principles. This is a great book for anyone interested in learning about becoming a therapist or for that journeyman therapist who needs a quick refresher.
