    Essentials of Career Focused Counseling: Integrating Theory, Practice, and Neuroscience posits that career counseling, rather than being vocational rehabilitation, career guidance, or employment counseling, is counseling related to career issues. This vital shift in understanding changes the counseling approach and frees counselors to engage from an empowered perspective with career-related presenting problems.

    Through the use of vignettes, reflection questions, and case studies, students are able to explore topics such as career development theory, career and mental health, career-focused counseling in K-12, college and emerging adulthood settings, and multicultural considerations in career-focused counseling. Each section of the book incorporates neuroscience in a natural way that assists counselors in understanding clients' issues and supports the natural connections between career and counseling.

    Essentials of Career-Focused Counseling successfully builds on counselor identity and how it can best be applied to the true career issues that clients bring to counseling settings. It is an ideal primary text for upper division and graduate level courses in career development and counseling.

    Chad Luke is a counselor educator who teaches neuroscience for counselors, career counseling, theory, techniques, multicultural counseling, and crisis intervention at Tennessee Technological University. He is a clinical supervisor providing clinical and developmental consultation to students, graduates, and treatment programs, and a licensed professional counselor in Tennessee with 20 years of clinical and teaching experience. Luke has written and presented nationally on neuroscience, career development, group counseling, and psychological factors impacting college student development, among other subjects. He has been a director of counseling at a career counseling center and an associate dean for student success.
