DALLAS TWP. — Cari M. Tellis, associate professor of speech-language pathology at Misericordia University, recently co-wrote the book, “Counseling and Interviewing in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology,’’ with Orlando R. Barone, of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
The 294-page book, published by Jones & Bartlett Learning, uses original models and inventive techniques to impart the most helpful approaches to counseling as part of the therapy process in speech-language pathology and audiology. The solutions-focused approach utilized in the text aims to build on clients’ strengths; facilitates client motivation based on the concepts of purpose, growth, and ownership, and creates in clients the belief that they have the tools and skills to maintain their abilities once treatment has ended.
Filled with real-life scenarios, each chapter delves into a key aspect of counseling by simplifying and clarifying the concepts and methods so clinicians will find them practical and comprehensive.
Each new print copy also includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access, an online tool that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook, complete with online video segments, student practice activities and assessments, according to the publishers.
The textbook can be purchased at Barnes & Noble, on Amazon.com, and at other book retailers. It is also available in a kindle format.
