The Handbook of Counseling and Emotions helps students discover greater levels of personal relevancy related to their introductory studies in counseling. This dynamic handbook also provides readers with an array of perspectives for understanding and addressing their emotions in daily life, ultimately promoting personal growth and assisting them in navigating everyday challenges.

The handbook is divided into two parts. Part I explores how foundational counseling concepts can be incorporated into a frame of reference for daily life and one’s emotional world. Students are exposed to theories and concepts that can readily be applied to the opportunities and challenges of daily life. Part II provides a comprehensive overview of emotions, including examinations of how emotions impact daily living, the science of emotions, emotions in communication, counseling strategies and emotions, addressing challenging emotions such as shame and guilt, and an in-depth analysis of anger and happiness.

The Handbook of Counseling and Emotions was designed to serve as a companion text to the sixth edition of Michael Nystul’s Introduction to Counseling: An Art and Science Perspective. It is well suited for foundational courses in counseling.
