Based on transcripts of an intensive vxfng practical counseling course presented by the author, the style of the manual is conversational with numerous examples of the effective wording of therapeutic statements.

Chapter topics include: Clinical Assessment and Suicide Prevention, The Counseling Process and Therapeutic Interventions, Loss and Grief Counseling Skills, Communication and Conflict Resolution Skills, Couple Counseling Strategies, and Counseling Ethics.

The Appendix is filled with practical concise articles for common issues and processes in counseling such as: depression, anger, bullying, sexual abuse, relationship/marriage issues, healing infidelity, childhood loss of caring, domestic violence, healing grief, words for dying, suicide prevention, addiction, resolving conflict, and more.
