Case studies focusing on two clients, “Stan” and “Gwen” (a new case of an African-American female client) appear in each chapter to demonstrate the application of all presented theories and make it easy for students to compare and contrast approaches. Each case focuses on applying techniques from every theory to both Stan and Gwen, bringing the theories to life by showing how it can be used in exploring specific problems raised by the clients.
New to this edition is a set of Learning Objectives at the beginning of each theory chapter. In addition, five new Self-Reflection and Discussion Questions appear at the end of each theory chapter to engage students in thinking about and applying the material.
The book’s flexible organization allows professors to cover topics in any order they choose to best meet particular student or course design needs.
A framework for creatively synthesizing the therapeutic models, along with step-by-step guidelines, enhances the book’s focus on helping students draw from the various theoretical models to develop a personalized counseling style.
Corey’s discussion of current ethical and professional issues facing counseling and human service professionals prepares students for the realities of practice. The chapter on ethics features the revised ACA 2014 Code of Ethics.
A concluding chapter shows students how to integrate the various theories and how to design their own integrative approach to counseling practice. The cases of Stan and Gwen are illustrated with the therapists working from an integrative perspective. Summary charts allow for comparisons among the theories. New and expanded topics include the central role of the client in determining therapy outcomes, the case for practice-based evidence rather than evidence-based practice, and the trend toward accountability in counseling.

New and emerging directions in pharmaceutical research to better treat schizophrenia
Although the dopamine hypothesis has been the cornerstone of schizophrenia therapeutics, it is clear that dopamine-based approaches do not treat all aspects of the disease. Moreover, many schizophrenia patients fail to respond to current antipsychotics. Integrating chemistry, biology, and pharmacology, this book explores emerging directions in pharmaceutical research for drug targeting and discovery in order to find more effective treatments for schizophrenia, one of the most serious and widespread psychiatric diseases.
Targets and Emerging Therapies for Schizophrenia presents the basics of schizophrenia, drug targets for the disease, and potential new drugs and therapeutics. It begins with a discussion of prevalence and etiology. Then, it describes therapies such as dopamine agonists and phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors as well as growing research aimed at addressing untreated symptoms. Next, the authors discuss receptor modulators, inhibitors, and targeting strategies for drug discovery. Both the neurobiological and chemical aspects of all major pharmacological targets are examined.
With contributions from an international team of pioneering pharmaceutical researchers, this book compiles the current knowledge in the field, setting the stage for new breakthroughs in the treatment of schizophrenia. Targets and Emerging Therapies for Schizophrenia:
- Provides a comprehensive resource for neuro-drug discovery and the development of molecular targets for schizophrenia treatment
- Draws from chemistry, biology, and pharmacology for more effective drug targeting and discovery
- Explores a wide range of receptors and molecular targets, including dopamine, PDEs, and neuropeptides
With Targets and Emerging Therapies for Schizophrenia as their guide, drug discovery and development scientists have the information they need to advance their own research so that new, more effective treatments for schizophrenia will soon be a reality.
