Intelligence, Feeling, Caring: Some Personal Perceptions.
Wrenn, C. Gilbert
Counselor education had its professional debut in the 20th century. This book is a personal collection of memories, advice, and perceptions of C. Gilbert Wrenn, a pioneer in counselor training. Although the volume is intended for everyone, it is especially aimed at the scores of former Ph.D. students, colleagues, and friends accumulated over the author's 93 years. As stated in the first section, the author wanted to remind these associates of some of the ideas he's written about in the past and offer some reflections on the joy of giving and caring about life's values and relationships. These bits of writing are not about procedures of counseling, organization, or administration; instead, they try to touch on the unifying principles of life. The personal recollections are interspersed with poetry and there is always an emphasis on lessons learned from the past. Some of the chapters include: "The Culturally Encapsulated Counselor,""Growing into the Future,""Universe--Creator and Father--God,""Caring Within the Four Walls of a Room,""Our Universe,""Reflection on Personal Growth," and "Good-bye, Last Word." Appendices list the author's former doctoral students, his publications, and letters of appreciation to the author. (RJM)
