Conducting interviews and counseling sessions is an art, not a science; however, there are some techniques and approaches that can help you be more effective, comprehensive, and caring.
Instead of a “there’s only one way” to conduct an interview and counseling session approach, this book cover flexible options so that you have more tools in your toolbox depending on the clients and issues you face. And just as there is not only one correct approach to conduct an interview or counseling session, there are some definite danger zones to avoid andthe authors highlight those as well.
If you want to better understand how to meet and greet clients, build client rapport, learn and gather relevant information, help clients understand the legal and non-legal aspects of their problem, identify issues, deliver bad news, develop effective strategies, and much more, then this is the book that you need.
Dealing with people is difficult. Dealing with people while they are experiencing legal, financial, familial, property, criminal, or other issues, is even more difficult. Mastering Interviewing and Counseling takes a simple and straightforward approach to these complex situations to help you and your clients get a better handle on what to do and how to do it.
