Description

For students and counselors in training

 

Designed specifically to orient counselors in training, regardless of their area of specialty, to the profession of counseling

 

A comprehensive overview of the major tenets of the counseling profession, precisely aligned with the 2009 CACREP standards

 

In this current, innovative book, students and counselors-in-training get a comprehensive overview of the major tenets of the counseling profession, including advocacy and multicultural counseling; licensure; professional associations; ethical/legal issues; consultation; supervision; outcomes research; and the counseling process, with diverse applications across the lifespan, settings, and specialties. Rather than approaching the topics from a dated and more global helping professions perspective, the book exposes readers to essential current and future practices missing from many current texts.

 

Precisely aligned with the 2009 CACREP standards, the text helps CACREP-accredited programs meet the standards, and helps non-CACREP programs provide counselors-in-training with the most current professional training standards. The book’s four sections cover: Foundations of Professional Counselor Identity, Counseling Processes and Approaches, Client Issues and Advocacy, and The Effectiveness of Counseling.
