Simple Counseling is not a book, but a self-contained website on CD-ROM intended to support university instructors who seek to focus students on principles and methods of counseling pertinent to adults who have aphasia.
Included for use by students are 25 exercises and an original collection of 40 video recordings of adults working with some of the life challenges associated with various types and degrees of aphasia. Printable learning activities and keys emphasize the dynamics of informational and personal adjustment issues, as well as selected microskills of proven value in counseling. Each exercise is based upon an explicit purpose intended to engage students in active, critical learning, either individually, or in groups. Many of these benefit from expert guidance provided by Audrey L. Holland, Ph.D., Regents Emerita Professor, University of Arizona. Learning activities and video content can be accessed from a separately provided list of resources.
An extensive interactive glossary of terms encourages students to test their understanding of concepts pertinent to counseling and aphasia. Links to online references, an extensive bibliography of print resources, and a family album of individuals featured in recordings round out this video workbook for instructors.
