Overview

You'll enjoy Ed Neukrug's easy-to-understand, comprehensive overview of the human services because of its experiential emphasis, unique use of personal vignettes, and its focus on the development of the helper. Neukrug covers critical topics-such as history, theory, helping skills, standards in the profession (i.e., ethics, accreditation, credentialing), group counseling, family counseling, community systems, research and assessment, normal and abnormal development, career issues, and multicultural awareness—in a way that helps you gain an understanding of the field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This text is not only an excellent text for any introductory human services course, but it also is a text that gives the beginning students in the field an in-depth future look at what they must acquire in knowledge and skills to be a competent, beginning professional practitioner in the field of human services."

"I have enjoyed using previous editions of this text with my undergraduate students and am excited about the positive changes throughout. The practical activities at the end of each chapter are useful for in-class discussion, homework, and also provide additional opportunities for students to learn on their own."

"The ethical vignettes at the end of the chapters are excellent for student interaction and involvement......My students have consistently been very positive about the text."
