GREAT CONDITION!  April 8, 2011

Very good textbook. I am actually interested in purchasing this book for future reference as a counselor. The book is realistic and gives a variety of examples that helpers may face in their careers. It also answered questions that I didn't even think to ask. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone that is trying to become a therapist. I highly recommend this text book for all.

Retail Description: {RET - P/R} Ideal for anyone embarking on or considering a career in the helping professions, Becoming a Helper, Sixth Edition provides an overview of the stages of the helping process while teaching readers the skills and knowledge they need to become successful helping professionals. Drawing on their years of experience, Corey and Corey focus on the struggles, anxieties, and uncertainties people often encounter on the road to becoming effective helpers.

This is an excellent book for anyone beginning or thinking of starting a career in counseling. The number one rule of counseling is that the counselor must know oneself. This book's purpose is to get the reader to reflect on oneself in a way that questions one's initial desire to counsel and how to counsel in a respectful way that does not place the counselor's values and beliefs upon the client.

Emphasizing self reflection, the authors challenge readers to examine their motives for choosing a helping career and encourage them to take a candid look at the demands and strains they'll face in the helping professions.
