In this edition (date unspecified for the first), Herr (counselor education and counseling psychology, Pennsylvania State U.) focuses on the social, political, and economic macrosystems in which behavior is shaped and counseling occurs rather than on counseling theories and process. Such contexts include: the impact of advanced technology, the changing American family, pluralism, special populations at risk, and emerging challenges in counseling (e.g. counseling with older adults, megatrends, and spirituality).
