Mark Gerig’s Foundations of Clinical Mental Health Counseling gives readers a fresh perspective on today’s clinical mental health counseling profession that is both practical and academically informed. Drawing on his experience as a counselor educator, practitioner, supervisor and manager in agency and behavioral health settings, as well as on his leadership positions in professional associations, the author shows readers what it truly means to be a relevant clinical mental health counselor who delivers effective treatment in an ever-changing contemporary context. With the goals of helping current and future counselors ensure that they are helpful to their clients, marketable to potential employers, and relevant voices in front of stakeholders or public policymakers, Dr. Gerig presents a well-informed description of pertinent settings, public policies, and trends. The new edition includes new applications of neuroscience; all new material covering the DSM-V and the ICD-10; new content on administrative roles of clinical mental health counselors; expanded coverage of group counseling, advocacy, managed care, program development and evaluation, qualitative research, and meta-analysis; coverage of the updated Multicultural and Social Justice Competencies and multiple heritage identity development theory and their implications for professional practice; and infusion of several important standards and codes.
