LIBRARY JOURNAL

A landmark publication in its field, The Handbook of Counseling is the authoritative voice of the counseling profession. Comprehensive in its scope, this text explores how the field has developed, the current state of the discipline, and where this dynamic profession is going. Edited by Don C. Locke, Jane E. Myers, and Edwin L. Herr, leaders in counseling education and research, this volume provides readers with the state-of-the-art theory and research today. This volume includes sections on the current status of the counseling profession, major approaches to counseling, settings and interventions, and education and supervisional research strategies. In addition, critical cutting-edge issues, such as responses to social and professional diversity, computer applications, and the state of independent counseling practice, are discussed. Sponsored by Chi Sigma Iota, the national honor society of counseling, The Handbook of Counseling is a "must-have" resource for all counselors, educators, supervisors, counselors-in-training, professionals, and libraries.
