This package includes MyLab Counseling.
A strong foundation for building counseling skills that addresses the latest CACREP standards.
Rapid changes in our world compel changes in the way mental health counselors must practice. Focusing on approaches that promote prevention, early intervention, wellness, and advocacy, Clinical Mental Health Counseling in Community and Agency Settings gives today’s counseling students a user-friendly yet scholarly approach to all aspects of their future profession.
The Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) now recognizes only Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) programs that have met the accreditation standards; therefore, the authors now focus exclusively on clinical mental health counseling to give students a strong base in this specialty area. Gladding and Newsome examine the history and professional foundations of counseling, legal and ethical issues, counseling with diverse populations, multiple roles and functions of clinical mental health counselors, and the many settings in which clinical mental health counselors practice.
Information presented in the chapters is supplemented with narratives supplied by mental health professionals employed across counseling settings, who share their views of the rewards and challenges associated with the services they provide. In addition, case studies in each chapter provide opportunities for students to grapple with challenging issues faced by clinical mental health counselors.
