Summary

Designed as a first course for graduate students on a community counseling track, this text provides a practical introduction to the field and covers all the core competencies required by CACREP. Students learn about the challenges a counselor may face--including ethical dilemmas and the struggle to meet an increasing demand for mental health services for a diverse population--through personal accounts, structured activities, and practical hints from experienced counselors.

A special feature, the Defining Moment, in each chapter provides an account of the struggles and triumphs of a practicing counselor. These insights, from counselors with a range of experience, help students realize the personal strengths and challenges they bring to the role of community counselor.
