9780023441455: Counseling: A Comprehensive Profession

 This updated fifth edition reflects the 2005 ACA code of ethics and encompasses all that counseling is today–addressing the history of counseling and the theory behind its practice; exploring the multicultural, ethical, legal environments in which counselors operate; and, examining the variety of skills today's counselors are expected to exhibit. Up-to-date references to contemporary theorists, trends, and challenges in the field ensures readers learn the current best practices and the most recently-adopted theories–prepares them to practice in today's settings, with the most recent tools and information. Incorporation of multicultural and gender issues throughout the material broadens the scope of the book. Six chapters are dedicated to specific populations with whom counselors work and professional arenas in which they practice. Includes American Counseling Association and NBCC Ethical Guidelines for the practice of internet counseling. Emphasis on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV-TR) categories prepares future counselors for the “nitty-gritty” of diagnosis–addresses the stringent requirements of documentation demanded by third party payers. A key resource for counseling certification.

In Part Two, the process, stages, and theories of the counseling profession are highlighted, beginning with discussion of universal aspects of counseling, followed by specifics of client service. In Part Three, the text examines counseling as it is actually practiced in a variety of situations, for a variety of clients.
