Summary
    The Dictionary of Counseling and Human Services: An Essential Resource for Students and Professional Helpers equips readers with concise and straightforward definitions of nearly 3,000 concepts and terms used within the disciplines.

    Leveraging a unique coding system, each word or term is ranked according to its likelihood to appear on a credentialing exam in counseling and separately ranked according to its likelihood to appear on a credentialing exam in human services. This valuable feature renders the text a vital resource for individuals studying to obtain various certifications and credentials.

    Helpful appendices provide lists of websites of the American Counseling Association and its divisions; websites of the National Organization of Human Services and its regions; websites of select professional associations and mental health associations; ethics codes, competencies, and credentialing bodies of select professional associations; graduate programs in counseling, human services, and related professions; undergraduate programs in human services; and an overview of DSM-5 diagnostic categories.

    Comprehensive, thorough, and approachable, the Dictionary of Counseling and Human Services is an exemplary resource for students preparing to enter helping professions. It is also an important reference book for helping professionals to add to their libraries.
