The study of counseling is like following the flow of a great river where territorial conflicts are fought, bridges are constructed for commercial advantage, and alliances are made with various tributaries that serve the purposes of the main stream. But in the meanwhile, most of life is lived on the banks of the river by people who have learned how to adjust to circumstances beyond their control as they make a living, raise families, and strive to keep order in their lives. It is on these banks, among these people, that qualified professional counselors find their fullest opportunities for service. It is also here that most become fulfilled by the rewards of a profession that truly can make a difference.
