Community Counseling : Empowerment Strategies for a Diverse Society (ISBN10: 0534506267; ISBN13: 9780534506261)
ISBN13: 978-0534506261
ISBN10: 0534506267

Summary: A thorough revision that now more than ever clearly describes and illustrates the practice of community counseling by discussing the most current issues and practices for community work in the 21st century. Especially emphasized in this edition are the practices of diversity, ethics and the role of the counselor as a change agent and advocate. Focusing on how to promote change and growth, this text provides effective guidelines for planning and implementing productiv
e community counseling programs and provides readers with a basic understanding of the role of the community counselor, the services offered by community agencies and the settings in which they are offered. The text examines four vital facets of counseling: direct community counseling, direct client services (outreach), indirect community services (influencing public policy) and indirect client services (client advocacy).

Benefits:
  • NEW! The text now incorporates the RESPECTFUL model as a way for counselors to be aware of the multidimensional diversity and cultural issues with clients they are working with. This model is described in detail in Chapter 1 and applied throughout the text.
  • Provides examples of outstanding community counseling programs now in operation across the United States.
  • Includes specific references to strategies that foster individual and community empowerment.
  • Incorporates examples of outreach to vulnerable populations, including families coping with marital disruption, farm families faced with economic difficulties, Vietnam veterans, and people with chronic mental health problems.
  • NEW! Material is now included in Chapter 1 on professional ethics providing readers with information on the ethical decision-making process. Professional ethics is addressed in the remaining chapters by discussing various ethical challenges and responsibilities mental health professionals face when using the community counseling model.
  • NEW! Competency-building Activities are now included in every chapter. These activities are intentionally designed to help the reader move from theory to practice encouraging the reader to "try out" the community counseling model in order to acquire the awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary for effectively working in various counseling settings.
  • NEW! To demonstrate the model's effectiveness, numerous examples of actual programs across the United States are given that illustrate how the community counseling model is used to foster the mental health and personal well-being of large numbers of persons in this nation.
  • NEW! The role of the counselor as a social change agent and advocate has been expanded.
  • NEW! An extended section on promoting hope with clients has been added emphasizing the importance of operating from a "strength-based perspective" when working with persons who are in need of counseling services.
  • NEW! The book includes many new and updated references, making it the most current text on the market.
  • NEW! InfoTrac College Edition can be bundled free with every new copy of this text. InfoTrac College Edition is a world-class, online university library that offers the full text of articles from thousands of scholarly and popular publications. Both adopters and their students receive unlimited access for one academic term (four months).
  • Integrates the Community Counseling Model throughout the text as an organizing structure to help readers examine and apply the concepts learned in the chapter. This model encourages community workers to evaluate the environment of the client, empower clients, employ a multifaceted environmental approach to helping, recognize diversity and strive for prevention.
