From the Publisher:

Encompassing literally every aspect of counseling, this popular text organizes coverage around a developmental framework, effectively illustrating the growth and evolution of counseling as a profession and defining where and how it differs from other helping specialties such as social work and clinical psychology. Part One explores the history of the counseling field, professional issues, the qualities of effective counselors, and the challenges they face. 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. The Third Edition exhibits the same thorough, scholarly coverage and exceptionally clear writing that led to this text's recommendation as a primary source for use in study toward certification and licensure exams in counseling.
