9780675206884: An Introduction to the Profession of Counseling

This book presents a comprehensive introduction to professional counseling, a profession that helps individuals, groups, and families work through troubles arising from problems experienced in everyday life.  As with previous editions, this text's philosophical and theoretical orientation to counseling is based on a phenomenological, psychosocial, life-span developmental approach.  In this approach counselors help persons resolve or work through situational, developmental transitions and conflicts within a multicultural context.

    From the Publisher:

    This edition describes how professional counselors, who are especially trained to counsel normal concerns of people, have the advantage of being well prepared to counsel in a variety of settings within a pluralistic society--from elementary schools to geriatric centers, from universities to religious organizations, from business and industry to shelters for refugees and the homeless. It discusses, as well, their preparedness to counsel a wide range of persons, either with gender concerns or persons of multi-ethnic backgrounds.
