Pioneers in Counseling & Development: Personal and Professional Perspectives.
Heppner, P. Paul, Ed.
This book presents 46 articles reprinted from the Journal of Counseling and Development (formerly The Personnel and Guidance Journal) from two series: "Pioneers in Guidance" and "Life Lines: Interviews with Pioneers in Counseling and Development." The stated purpose of the book is to document the personal and professional lives of early pioneers whose work has shaped the counseling profession, whose writings have affected the thinking of others, and whose histories reflect the development of the profession. The book is organized into eight sections. The first six sections consist of individual interviews with pioneers, grouped into six themes: career planning, measurement, theorists, scholars and practitioners, women and minorities, and administrators. The seventh section highlights four educational programs that have played a major role in pioneering the training of counselors and counseling psychologists. In the eighth section the articles and themes that appear among some of the interviews are examined, especially in regard to significant events that influenced the pioneers' development, and the pioneers' comments and observations about training.
