Duane’s research interests include school counseling, philosophical counseling, and technology in counseling. Kimberly’s research includes diversity competences for helping professions and the medical fields. They recently co-authored Essentials of Cultural Competencies in Pharmacy Practice with the American Pharmacists Association. They have both been active Counselor Educators and worked in private practice.

Developing Your Theoretical Orientation in Counseling and Psychotherapy provides therapists-in-training with tools, strategies, and activities to formulate their response to the age-old question, "What's your theoretical orientation?" The underpinnings of counseling and psychotherapy are based in its theoretical foundation. This text gives students the understanding and the tools to develop a theoretical orientation throughout their training program. The innovative second edition incorporates cultural competencies and alternative views of theoretical orientation, such as strategic eclecticism, as well as provides a greater focus on constructivist and family theories.

What Reviewers Have to Say About Developing Your Theoretical Orientation in Counseling and Psychotherapy: "I like the simplistic stance this book uses to guide and facilitate what all counselors find hard to do...that is, to develop their theoretical orientation. Whether novice or amateur, this book offers the helping professional a step-by-step process to articulate this process."---Joy J. Burnham, University of Alabama

"I see the basic strength of the book being the opportunity and structure it provides students to examine the philosophical and personal factors that might influence their choice of a theoretical approach."---James Archer, Jr., University of Florida

"The text offers a clear and concise guide for students to assist them in moving toward actively utilizing theory in their practice"---Valerie G. Balog, Univesity of North Carolina at Charlotte

"I think this is a good supplemental text to the comprehensive overview of theories types that are currently available. I also think there is a market for this as a supplemental text in a clinical course (practicum, for example)."---Heather Trepal, University of Texas at San Antonio
