Micro counseling, or micro-skills training, is a well-established training methodology in mental health counseling, usually reserved for the novice therapist. This text expands micro-skills training for the entire developmental spectrum of a clinician, from novice to master, providing a "tool box" of exercises appropriate for students in fieldwork courses and for practicing professionals. It also applies traditional concepts to a systemic context, making it an ideal text for working with more than one client in the room, such as during couple therapy, family therapy, or group therapy.
