Summary

You'll enjoy Ed Neukrug's easy-to-understand, comprehensive overview of the human services because of its experiential emphasis, unique use of personal vignettes, and its focus on the development of the helper. Neukrug covers critical topics-such as history, theory, helping skills, standards in the profession (i.e., ethics, accreditation, credentialing), group counseling, family counseling, community systems, research and assessment, normal and abnormal development, career issues, and multicultural awareness--in a way that helps you gain an understanding of the field.
