Bibliography of Self-Help, Peer Counseling and Paraprofessionals in the Human Services.
Giddan, Norman S., Ed.; And Others
This comprehensive bibliography, designed for those in self-help and paraprofessional practice, is organized around five major topics: (1) Community Mental Health and Community Psychology (100 pages); (2) Counseling Psychology; Counselor and Higher Education (65 pages); (3) Social Work and Social Services (22 pages); (4) New Careers: Career and Manpower Development (48 pages); and (5) Allied Professions and Disciplines (69 pages). The introduction includes a definition of the scope of the major areas, and a discussion of the nature of paraprofessional work, factors which fostered the use of paraprofessionals, and the rationale for self-help and paraprofessionalism; and an overview of the paraprofessional movement. A supplementary listing of 17 smaller, less comprehensive bibliographies on the topic is also included in the introduction. The more than 2,000 citations from books and journals are arranged alphabetically, by author, within each of the five major sections. (AG)
