How should counseling theory influence counseling practice? In this webinar, Gerald Corey, Ph.D., shares his insight into taking theory out of the classroom and applying it in the treatment process. Dr. Corey focuses on formulating a counseling style that takes into consideration the thinking, feeling, and behaving aspects of human functioning. This perspective draws primarily from relationship-oriented and cognitive-behavior therapies, but also addresses the psychodynamic and postmodern approaches. Dr. Corey also provides an overview of key concepts and techniques based on several contemporary theoretical approaches to counseling, and he considers both the advantages and drawbacks of an integrative approach to counseling. Dr. Corey has written and edited numerous textbooks, journal articles, and book chapters related to counseling.
