More Product Info


The seventh edition of Gibson & Mitchell's Introduction to Counseling and Guidance retains its logical progression of topics, while introducing the latest technologies, concepts, and applications in the counselor's repertoire. As they have in previous editions, the authors present practical examples and discussions of all of the major facets of counseling in a wide variety of counselors' work settings. They include a thorough treatment of techniques of assessment, including an overview of standardized testing and discussion of subjective approaches to appraisal–observation, self-reporting, and others. And they give the vital topics of program development/management and legal/ethical issues their due, by giving them their own chapters.
