9780415524964: Introduction to the Counseling Profession

Introduction to the Counseling Profession is a comprehensive overview of the history and foundational concepts of counseling, offering the most current and relevant breadth of coverage available. Students will gain insight into the myriad issues that surround not only the process of counseling and its many populations but also the personal dynamics that have an impact on this process. The contributed-author format provides state-of-the-art information from experts in their respective fields while maintaining a consistent structure and message.

This edition has been brought in line with the 2009 Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) standards and includes chapters on each of the CACREP specializations. Topics rarely treated in other introductory texts are addressed, such as research and writing in counseling, technology and counseling, and self-care and growth.

This edition includes new pedagogical features such as sidebars and more case studies to expand on key topics, as well as new chapters on:

  • Cross-Cultural Counseling
  • Self-Care and Self-Growth
  • Individual Counseling
  • Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
  • Addictions Counseling
  • Student Affairs and College Counseling

A collection of supplemental resources are available online to benefit both instructors and students. Instructors will find PowerPoint slides and test banks to aid in conducting their courses, and students can access chapter summaries, exercises, and other tools to supplement their review of the material in the text.

Review:

"The strength of this book is that it is expertly written and very up to date and comprehensive in the breadth of topics covered. As the title suggests, there is an emphasis on the professional aspects of counseling, which makes it a useful guide for students entering the field. It is also a rich source of references. Overall, I would certainly recommend this book to American readers and particularly to those new to the counseling profession." -Oliver Bashford, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, UK

"The authors have brought together a group of experts who provide the solid information needed by counselor education students. The material provides the kind of overview of the field that is essential, but also provides information on professional scholarship, creative approaches, and more that new professionals need, though are rarely provided." - Richard J. Hazler, PhD, PCC, NCC, professor in charge of counselor education at Penn State University

"This is a must-have book for every practicing counselor and counselor educator who is currently working in the field. It is chock-full of state of the art information on counseling skills, techniques, and creative approaches for working with students and clients. The authors include some of the best known professionals in counseling, but also introduce some bright new stars.  If you could only require one book for your students or new professionals, this should be the one to recommend." - Pat Schwallie-Giddis, PhD, associate professor and chair of the department of Counseling & Human Development at George Washington University

"Introduction to the Counseling Profession is a premiere textbook that incorporates information salient to the counseling profession. This well edited book is creatively organized to clarify the ‘essence of counseling.’ Further, the book is timely and clearly articulates the role of the counselor. I highly recommend this comprehensive text." - Loretta J. Bradley, PhD, Paul Whitfield Horn Professor of counselor education at Texas Tech University
