The professional helper should be a teacher, a mentor, a motivator and a guide when assisting helpees find solutions to their life situations. Most clients have within themselves the answers to most if not all of their life situations; quite often, what they need is someone to assist them in sifting through and evaluating the various possible responses for a situation. This revised and expanded new edition continues the theme of the first edition in providing a basic understanding of the various kinds of helping relationships and characteristics that an effective helper must possess. An overview of the major issues the United States has encountered, and to some degree successfully overcome with the involvement of the helping professional, is presented. Part I covers personal skills that a helper should possess such as understanding self, understanding human behavior, cultural differences, disabilities, religion, and resources. Part II discusses the impacts of the changing roles of helping professionals, roles in cultural evolution, and future challenges for helpers. Part III provides an analysis of theoretical views for helping relationships. A discussion of the theories are provided to enable helpers develop their own professional approaches to helping clients. Other topics include understanding individual and family counseling, preparing the helper to provide the best professional and ethical services possible, a sound understanding of human behavior, how to conduct the helping relationship from the standpoint of process, establishment of goals, and the implementation of these goals. The Professional Helper will be a beneficial text to all counseling students, as well as students in social work, human resources, psychology, sociology, and human relations.
This book addresses ethical issues and principles in human services professions including social work, counseling, psychology, and marriage and family therapy. All of these professions must be sensitive to ethical standards and dilemmas, particularly given the increase in litigation surrounding ethical issues. This book leads the reader through a personal journey of discovery, assessment, and clarification of values and ethics. The focus is to help the reader assimilate ethical principles, thus becoming an ethical practitioner. The book reflects the ethical codes of the American Counseling Association (ACA), the American Psychological Association (APA), National Association of Social Workers (NASW), and the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). Sound pedagogy includes learning objectives, cases, and guided exercises, all intended to raise the reader's self-awareness of issues of values, ethics, and professional standards. For professionals in social work, counseling, psychology, or marriage and family therapy.
Organized around the latest CACREP standards, Counseling Theory: Guiding Reflective Practice, by Richard D. Parsons and Naijian Zhang, presents theory as an essential component to both counselor identity formation and professional practice. Drawing on the contributions of current practitioners, the text uses both classical and cutting-edge theoretical models of change as lenses for processing client information and developing case conceptualizations and intervention plans. Each chapter provides a snapshot of a particular theory/approach and the major thinkers associated with each theory as well as case illustrations and guided practice exercises to help readers internalize the content presented and apply it to their own development as counselors.
This concise guide provides a reflective process for effective school counseling, the fundamentals of cognitive counseling, effective intervention strategies, in-depth case studies, and guided practice exercises.
