Second Edition of Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy: An Integrative Approach (2016) with Sage Publications (which presents a chapter on Neuroscience and describes it as the Fifth Force in psychology); Spotlighting the Strengths of Every Single Student: Why U.S. Schools Need a New, Strengths-Based Approach (2011, ABC-CLIO (2011); and Nurturing Nonviolent Children: A Guide for Parents, Educators, and Counselors (Praeger, 2008).

"Realizing that counseling theory is not the easiest subject for students to grasp, nor the most fun for most students, I have searched for years for a textbook that communicates excitement for theory and also for the value of each theoretical approach for its time in the history of counseling and psychotherapy...In 2011, I found Elsie Jones-Smith's (2011) Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy: An Integrative Approach, and in using it with my students, it has really help bring counseling theories alive for my students. Jones-Smith has revised her textbook with a second edition, and I am even more excited by it than I was by the first edition. The text is both historical in helping students envision the evolution of counseling and psychotherapy, and foundational, for it grounds the reader in each of the recognized approaches to the subject matter...I believe that Jones-Smith's (2014) Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy: An Integrative Approach is the most exciting and engaging counseling theories text available today. It is comprehensive in its coverage of the theories that master's and doctoral level counselors, psychotherapists, and clinical and counseling psychologists should know and understand. It is well written and easily read and assimilated by students. It contains the powerful and engaging tool entitled 'Theoretical Orientation Scale' by Jones-Smith that, if used at the beginning of the theories course, moves students from apprehensive to excited and eager to learn about the theoretical orientations that seem to fit them and those that seem to fit their classmates." -- Charles Timothy (Tim) Dickel, Ed.D.
