Great resource.  June 21, 2011

It is a great resource for a person looking into going into counseling. It covers all things that a counselor may do while working in the community. This textbook is very practical and clinically relevant for the beginning counseling student. It also gives readers a practical vision for their future career options. It basically went over everything that I have learned during the last year of graduate school.

Numerous examples as well as exercises contribute much to students’ potential understanding of key concepts.”-Stephen R. Wester, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
