From the PublisherThis is a very clean well-written text that is a wonderful supplement for introductory courses in human services. It provides an excellent overview about a career in human services, in addition to valuable chapters on a number of specific career paths. Each chapter provides 'day-in-the-life' vignettes. There are also some fine resources that point students to additional information. I look forward to publication of this book so I can adopt it! While other introductory texts do an overview of career paths, they can't go far enough. This text fills a gap between the student's hunger for information on career paths and what can reasonably be covered in an introductory text. I will adopt the minute it's out!
The Helping Professions: A Careers Sourcebook offers a panoramic view of the pathways in the helping professions ranging from paraprofessional to postdoctoral training. Each career category is filled with facts, figures, and references designed to assist the exploring student in making informed choices about their future aspirations.
