Counseling in Pacific Rim Countries: Past-Present-Future.
Evraiff, William, Ed.
Counseling has emerged in the 20th century as one of three major helping professions, the others being psychology and social work. The United States has had a significant influence on the development of counseling all over the world. An outcome of the International Counseling in the 21 Century Conferences has been the recognition that, regardless of where people train to be counselors, they learn to adapt their training with the cultural realities of their own country. In many respects this is what is happening in America now. Due to the increasing cultural and ethnic diversity, counselors and counselor educators in the U.S. are more aware of the need to incorporate the realities of working in multicultural settings. This book is an outgrowth of the belief that counseling has developed similarly yet distinctly in each country. These papers describe the past, present, and future of counseling in the Pacific Rim countries, such as Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, and Singapore, as well as Canada and the United States. Papers include: "History of Counseling in Australia" (Clive Williams); "Counseling in Canada" (E. Anne Marshall and Max R. Uhlemann); "Development of Counseling in Hong Kong" (Betty Lai-ling Lai); and "Counseling in Singapore: Trends, Issues & Future Directions (Esther Tan). Many papers address school counseling. (Each paper contains references.) (JDM)
