Summary

This respected book offers effective guidelines for planning and implementing productive community counseling programs and provides examples of outstanding community counseling programs now in operation. In this extensively revised and updated book, authors Judy A. Daniels and Michael J. D'Andrea join Judith A. Lewis and Michael D. Lewis in a fresh examination of how counselors can develop a new vision of their professional roles. This reexamination of roles is essential in the quest to better meet the needs of clients living in a rapidly changing, culturally-diverse, and technological society.

  • Specific references to strategies that foster individual and community empowerment are included.
  • Examples are provided of prevention programs, including stress management, health promotion, life skills training, school-based programs, and preventive education programs in the community mental health context.
  • Recommendations are provided for planning and management programs.
  • Examples are included 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.
  • A heavy emphasis is placed on multiculturalism and the role of the environment.
  • More thorough coverage of managed care and its impact on community agencies is included.
  • The authors place greater emphasis on multiculturalism and the role of the environment.
  • A reworked and refined definition of the community counseling model addresses issues of importance as we approach the 21st century.
  • The book features the contributions of two new co-authors, Judy A. Daniels and Michael J. D.'Andrea.
