Federal Information Resources for Professional Counselors. A Sourcebook of Free and Low-Cost Resources To Support and Enrich Your Work as a Professional Counselor.
Lum, Christie
The federal government supports many information clearinghouses and research institutions that produce free and low-cost publications and materials that can support and enrich the work of a professional counselor. This sourcebook is designed to help tap into and take greater advantage of these resources. The sourcebook provides syntheses of current research, statistics, and research reports; background material about current and emerging policy issues; information about model programs and policies; materials and resources that may be used in school guidance and counseling programs; and educational pamphlets and brochures for the office waiting room. Topics covered include adoption; aging; AIDS/HIV; child abuse/family violence; crime; disabilities; education; employment and career development; health; mental health; smoking; substance abuse; and youth and families. For each resource, contact information and a description of the service are included. (GCP)
