9781305271494: Theory, Practice, and Trends in Human Services: An Introduction

This easy-to-understand text addresses critical topics in human services to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the field. You'll learn about professional issues and major theories related to human service work as well as about how to work with varying client populations and become a culturally competent helper. Major content areas include professional issues, standards in the profession (skill standards, ethics, accreditation, and credentialing), history, counseling theory, helping skills, human development, group and family counseling, community systems, consultation and supervision, and research, testing, and evaluation. The last chapter (on career development) gives you an opportunity to examine whether human services is the right field for you and helps you understand the career counseling process. The book is further distinguished by its experiential emphasis, unique use of personal vignettes, and focus on the development of the helper.

About the Author:

Edward S. Neukrug is the former Chair of the Department of Educational Leadership and Counseling and currently Professor of Counseling and Human Services at Old Dominion University, Dr. Edward S. Neukrug has taught counselor education and human services for over thirty years. In addition, he has worked as a substance abuse counselor, a counselor at a crisis center, an outpatient therapist at a mental health center, an associate school psychologist, a school counselor, and as a private practice psychologist and licensed professional counselor. Dr. Neukrug has written dozens of articles and chapters in books, has authored eight books, and was the editor of THE SAGE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THEORY IN COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY. Books he has written include: EXPERIENCING THE WORLD OF THE COUNSELOR: A WORKBOOK FOR COUNSELOR EDUCATORS AND STUDENTS (4th Edition); COUNSELING THEORY AND PRACTICE; SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES FOR HUMAN SERVICE PROFESSIONALS; and ESSENTIALS OF TESTING AND ASSESSMENT FOR COUNSELORS, SOCIAL WORKERS, AND PSYCHOLOGISTS (3rd Edition). He has also developed DVDs that demonstrate counseling skills and techniques, an interactive website where users can "meet" major theorists of counseling and psychotherapy and learn more about them and their theories (www.odu.edu/~enekrug), and an interactive survey where one can identify his or her view of human nature (http://ww2.odu.edu/~enekrug/therapists/survey.html).

Review:

The text provides a comprehensive overview of the field and profession of human services. It is well organized and easily read. The correlation between chapter overviews and summaries is excellent. [It offers] excellent suggestions for experiential exercises that can be accomplished in class or as homework assignments."

"This textbook is an excellent survey of important information for the new human services student. It is particularly strong in the areas of diversity, culture, the role of the human services professional, and many of the practical aspects of case management. . . . The text is an excellent resource for many of the most important topics in preparing students to enter the human services field."
