What reviewers have to say about this text:

 

“The key strengths of this text are its organization, its inclusion of material relevant to the practice of counseling in multiple contexts, and its coverage of self-care issues.  Numerous examples as well as exercises contribute much to students’ potential understanding of key concepts.”

--Stephen R. Wester, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

 

“This text is very practical and clinically relevant for the beginning counseling student.  I am especially glad to see sections devoted to assessment and a brief review of these as this is an area that counselors need to be well-versed in and proficient with terminology.  [This text is] very well organized, well sequenced, and addresses comprehensive information that beginning counselors/students need to know about.”

--Margery Shupe, Xavier University
