Interviewing and Change Strategies for Helpers: Fundamental Skills and Cognitive Behavioral Interventions

Cormier, S. and Nurius, P.S. (2009). Interviewing and Change Strategies for Helpers: Fundamental Skills and Cognitive Behavioral Interventions. 6th ed. Belmont, CA: Brooks/Cole.

This book introduces readers to the knowledge, skills, values, and tools needed by today's professional helpers. The authors' conceptual foundation reflects four critical areas for helpers: core skills and attributes, effectiveness and evidence-based practice, diversity issues and ecological models, and critical commitments and ethical practice, using an interdisciplinary approach that reflects the authors' extensive experience in the fields of counseling, psychology, social work, and health and human services. The text combines evidence-based interviewing skills and cognitive-behavioral intervention change strategies, thus preparing readers to work with clients representing a wide range of ages, cultural backgrounds, and challenges in living.
