ABSTRACT

THE theoretical view of an approach toward effective training in counseling and psychotherapy presented in the preceding chapter can be implemented in a variety of settings with a variety of trainees. Available research evidence makes the basic didactic and experiential components appear to be essential for successful training; but the specifics of application will vary with the goals and nature of the supervisor, the trainees, and the total training setting. In particular, the list of supplementary required readings will differ greatly, depending upon whether training is for practice in pastoral counseling, rehabilitation counseling, guidance counseling, clinical psychology, psychiatry, social work, nursing, or education.
