AUTHORS: Ungar, Michael - ©2011
In COUNSELING IN CHALLENGING CONTEXTS, Michael Ungar integrates the best of what we know about individual and family counseling when working in clinical, community, and residential settings. Using a social ecological model of practice, this text shows through detailed case illustrations the practical application of strengths-based interventions that are sensitive to people’s cultural and contextual differences. Two concepts, Navigation and Negotiation, organize the theory and its application to counseling practice with people of all ages who face complex challenges. A DVD with four demonstration videos, available for purchase, shows how to put theory into practice (To see a sample of the videos, and to hear Dr. Ungar discuss the book, go to www.youtube.com and search: Counseling in Challenging Contexts).
