Overview

Clinical Mental Health Counseling in Community and Agency Settings / Edition 3

The third edition of this user-friendly yet scholarly text has been thoroughly updated to address the recently revised Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP) standards, and provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of clinical mental health counseling. After an insightful introduction to the foundation of the discipline, the authors examine the many roles and functions clinical mental health counselors perform, the variety of settings in which they work, and how that work differs from one client population to another. Emerging issues and trends in the field are thoroughly explained and explored. First-person narratives throughout the text illustrate specific challenges and opportunities associated with particular areas of expertise. All of this gives students a real-world look into their future profession.

What reviewers have to say about this text:

“The key strengths of this text are its organization, its inclusion of material relevant to the practice of counseling in multiple contexts, and its coverage of self-care issues. Numerous examples as well as exercises contribute much to students’ potential understanding of key concepts.”

--Stephen R. Wester, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

“This text is very practical and clinically relevant for the beginning counseling student. I am especially glad to see sections devoted to assessment and a brief review of these as this is an area that counselors need to be well-versed in and proficient with terminology. [This text is] very well organized, well sequenced, and addresses comprehensive information that beginning counselors/students need to know about.”

--Margery Shupe, Xavier University
