The text is a reference-style resource that provides new counselors with a way to bridge the gap between what they learned in the classroom and the challenges they will meet in their practice. Beginning counselors will find concise answers to common questions that will likely arise in the course of their professional development and a reliable reference "companion" as they embark on their careers in the profession.

This volume features contributions from counselor educators and professionals in the field, guided largely by the core-curriculum of the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Program (CACREP). Information is presented in brief form, making the main points of each section concise, clear, visible, and easily accessible. Readers are also introduced to cutting-edge areas of research.
