A Waste of Time; Author is Self-Serving Using Own Research
The book was assigned for advanced counseling methods in graduate school. The author repeats hundreds of times a point that could be made in a two-page journal article. Actually, the book simply repeats his own journal articles and adds nothing to it. He cites the work of his friends from his days at Utah to rub their back. His web page is trite and not professional. It is poorly designed and has one thing in mind: to promote his other products. His SRS and ARS forms are goofy.
Having been required to use them for class, it is awkward using a 'tool' that is nothing but subjective, and Miller positions them as if his software can calculate, with accuracy, the amount of change a client has made from a previous session. Save your money!
