Counseling Gems: Thoughts for the Practitioner.
Carnevale, James P.
This book contains 110 "gems" about counseling situations gleaned from a practitioner's experience as an advisor to practicum students in counseling in which he advised students on different ways to think about counseling situations. The suggestions are organized under eight headings. The first 19 suggestions deal with counseling philosophy and points of view and the next 10 focus on goals and boundaries of counseling. Five suggestions are included in a section of clients' reasons for counseling and 21 suggestions are specific to the counselor's role in counseling. Nine suggestions focus on problems encountered in counseling and 31 suggestions are concerned with counseling techniques and procedures. Thirteen suggestions are included in a section on the "do's" and don'ts" of counseling. The final two suggestions look at termination of treatment. For each of the 110 suggestions, the "gem" is presented in bold type followed by brief comments on the idea presented in the "gem." (NB)
