Collison, Brooke B., Ed.; Garfield, Nancy J., Ed.
This book was written to help students and adults in transition decide whether to prepare for a career in the helping professions. Over 90 different career options are described in various work settings within the counseling and human development field. Fourteen chapters are included, divided into three parts: (1) Getting Started; (2) Work Settings; and (3) Moving Ahead. Part 1 contains two chapters: "How to Use This Book" (Brooke Collison and Nancy Garfield), which explains the three parts of the book and introduces the work setting chapters, and "So You Think You Want a Career in the Helping Professions" (Brooke Collison and Nancy Garfield), which poses questions to consider before making a career decision. These 2 chapters are followed by 10 work setting chapters: (1) "Careers in School Settings" (Claire Cole); (2) "Careers in Postsecondary Settings" (Susan Komives); (3) "Consulting Careers in College Settings" (Clyde Crego); (4) "Careers in Business and Industry" (Bree Hayes); (5) "Careers in Private Practice" (Burt Bertrum); (6) "Careers in Public and Private Agencies" (Robert Male); (7) "Careers in Federal and State Agencies" (Andrew Helwig); (8) "Careers in Health Care Facilities" (Joseph McCormack); (9) "Careers in Residential Treatment Centers" (Ross Lynch and Susan Wiegmann); and (10) "Careers Working with Special Populations" (Barbara Brown Robinson). Part 3 contains the final two chapters: "Credentialing, Certification, and Licensure" (Judy Rosenbaum and Sharon Alexander) and "What Next?" (Nancy Garfield and Brooke Collison). A list of professional associations, certifying groups, and accrediting agencies; a matrix of occupational titles and work settings; a list of contributors; and an index of occupational titles used in the book are appended.
