Since its conception by Allen Ivey in the mid-1960s, microcounseling has grown from a methodology for teaching basic counseling skills to a conceptual framework for the multicultural intentional helper. Microcounseling has proven to be a very effective training paradigm with a wide variety of individuals from various cultures and contexts. This text presents not only the latest thinking on microcounseling but, more specifically, outlines the major theoretical constructs and concepts of the microcounseling model. These constructs and concepts are framed within the context of the culturally effective helper. The book also details the skills and dimensions of microcounseling as outlined in the Microcounseling Hierarchy, a methodological approach to the helping process. Also emphasized is microcounseling as a "technology of constructivism." This emphasis is not simply on the skills and dimensions of microcounseling but on the constructive relevance of those skills. The text also presents a current and very comprehensive review of the research on microcounseling, with over 450 studies summarized and reviewed. A wide variety of lay and professional populations have experienced microcounseling, including graduate students, counselors and psychologists, physicians, children, the elderly, and individuals with varying personal challenges. Because of this wide application of microcounseling, this most up-to-date book in the field serves as an essential resource for professionals and graduate and undergraduate students in counseling programs, as well as social workers, nurses, and physicians.
