Editorial Reviews

From reviews of the text:   “Very good scholarship presented in a concise and informative way . . . . From my perspective, this is the best introductory career development text available.”   —James M. O’Neil, University of Connecticut   [Key strengths of the book include that it is] well-aligned with CACREP standards, . . . connect[s] developmental models with career needs, [includes] programming interventions offered by level (elementary, middle/high, postsecondary), [includes] . . . more recently proposed theories, [and has a] focus on application. . . .  The balance of engaging writing style and topical depth is better, in my opinion, than any other career text I have reviewed.”   —Chester R. Robinson, Texas A&M University - Commerce       “One component I really liked was the option for MyCounselingLab. I feel confident students would benefit from this, especially if this course is taught in an online format.”   —Joan N. Strutton, The University of Texas at Tyler
