Brisbane, Australia (PressExposure) October 11, 2007 -- The Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors has published two eBooks this year: a compendium with their most popular articles; and a comprehensive collection of case studies by professional counsellors and psychologists. They're now releasing a third - it's called AIPC's Five Therapies eBook.
With over 50-pages of professionally-written content, this eBook explores five mainstream counselling therapies that serve as rationale for techniques and approaches in counselling, psychology, coaching and other disciplines. It's a great resource, not only for professionals, but also for anyone interested in self-improvement, communication, self-awareness, cognitive processes, behaviour, and more.
And again, it's absolutely FREE!
In the AIPC's Five Therapies eBook you'll learn the concepts and applications of five therapies (behaviour, cognitive behaviour, person-centred, solution-focused and gestalt) including:
- Classical and operant conditioning - Social learning and personality development - Ellis' REBT model and Beck's cognitive therapy model - Miracle, scaling and exception questions - Common cognitive distortions, thinking errors and communication spoilers - Introductions to Pavlov, Watson, Skinner, Dollard, Wolpe, Bandura, Ellis, Beck and other leading theorists in behavioural science
- Real life examples, dialogues and case studies - Key concepts, techniques, objectives and applications of each therapy - Tables, diagrams and images to illustrate concepts and applications
It's a resource to read over and over again; provide to clients as an introduction to the counselling process; give to students as part of their learning materials; and more. The eBook is available for free at the Institute's official Blog, Counselling Connection.
