Therapeutic Interviewingis the first introductory counseling text to focus both on the microskills of therapy so important for beginning counselors, and on the unique challenges a counselor faces based on the context of setting and client. 

This unique text, intended for beginning students in counseling and psychotherapy, offers the foundational strategies, skills, and tools of therapeutic interviewing along with an understanding of the formats and settings in which they will be working.  Reiter provides novice therapists with a basic understanding of interviewing and explores with them how they can develop the skills to become a competent therapist.
