The second edition of Neuroscience for Counselors and Therapists: Integrating the Sciences of the Mind and Brain presents students with an accessible, insightful discussion of the virtues and vices of integrating neuroscience into existing models of counseling practice. The text boasts an emphasis on practical application, helping readers better understand the relationship between particular theories and neuroscience, then offering guidance as to how they can incorporate this knowledge into personal practice.

The book begins with an introduction to neuroscience and a chapter dedicated to exploring the structure and function of the brain. The four major theoretical paradigms are discussed in individual chapters, integrating neuroscience into each and demonstrating this integration through a client vignette. Four prominent disorders that appear frequently in therapy are covered in a comparative, integrative way across the four treatment paradigms.

For the second edition, all references have been updated to reflect cutting-edge research within the discipline. Additionally, newly developed Cultural Considerations sections, which appear in each chapter, help students identify the challenges of integration as they relate to diverse populations and individual cultural experiences.

Neuroscience for Counselors and Therapists is an innovative yet reader-friendly text that is well suited for courses in counseling and psychotherapy.
