Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This author has a gift for writing both from a personal and professional perspective. The writing is clear and easy to follow; the chapters flow easily into the case illustrations and suggested activities. She integrates culture, family, special population issues into her themes; advocating the generalizability of the inclusion of these constructs in a wide range of counseling services."

"I find the writing style of this book very comfortable in a way that maintains interest. I was also very comfortable with the flow and the transitions from topic to topic, and was impressed by the high level of detail."

"The author writes in a manner that is professional, appealing and at a pace that typically holds the reader's attention. This text is packed with accurate and recent information that reflects the author's diligence in considering the essentials for such a text."

"This is an extremely valuable text for all mental health practitioners involved with counseling, who are aware they need to address the growing necessity and demand for catering to the spiritual and religious dimensions of clients."

"How would I describe the text to a colleague: thorough, helpful learning activities and case examples, monumental!"
