Contemporary Issues in Counseling Pamela K. Patrick, CapellaUniversity A compelling new text, Contemporary Issues in Counseling encourages readers to explore and critically analyze contemporary issues faced by counselors practicing in a dynamic and changing environment. Issues reflect current trends as well as emerging practice topics such as coaching, disaster counseling, and the bio-psycho-social model. The author focuses on key issues in three major sections: Section I sets the stage of the environment of contemporary counseling practice; Section II focuses on issues that apply directly to counseling practice; and Section III addresses the emerging topics that will become focal points of research in the years ahead. Features include: Use of current research, theory, and applications to provide contemporary review of key issues counselors face in everyday practice, may encounter while in training, or that are emerging as innovations within the counseling fields of practice. Use of case vignettes throughout all chapters to present examples of how the issues described are evident in the real world of the counseling practitioner. Discussion questions/topics at end of each chapter that highlight key concepts by applying the chapter content to the topics/questions. Topics are additionally linked to in-text content sections of each chapter to reinforce application of theory and research to practice.
