This compelling book stimulates readers to explore and critically analyze contemporary issues faced by helping professionals practicing in a dynamic and changing environment. Issues reflect current trends as well as emerging practice topics not addressed in other books, such as coaching, disaster counseling, and the bio-psycho-social model. The book focuses its attention on key issues that all counselors can identify with within three major sections: the first “sets the stage” that is the environment of contemporary counseling practice; section II focuses on issues that directly apply to counseling practice and that appear in the “headlines” in the lives of counselors; and Section III addresses the emerging topics that will become topics of research in the years ahead. Features of the book include the use of current research, theory and applications to provide a contemporary review of key issues counselors face in every-day practice, may encounter while in training, or that are emerging as innovations within the counseling and human services fields of practice. Case vignettes are used throughout all chapters to bring the content “alive” to the reader and present examples of how the issues described are in evidence in the real world of the counseling practitioner. Issues of culture, ethnicity and diversity are highlighted throughout the text. Discussion questions/topics at end of each chapter highlight key concepts by applying the chapter content to the topics/questions. Topics additionally are linked to in-text content sections of each chapter to reinforce application of theory and research to practice.
