[Warning: Comic relief]. Every good counselor keeps his or her eye open for the latest/greatest counseling tool that will make them highly effective in their work. This link will take you to a video of such a technique that will allow every counselor to solve the problems that clients bring in under five minutes. Further, the technique is cheap so everyone can afford it. Check out this video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sd6iVYOpcQ
On a serious note, counselors and lay folk have their own version of this technique that they have been inclined to use in some shape or form. It is interesting that no one wants to receive this technique but everyone has been tempted to use it none the less.
