Overview

This practical and personal guide alerts students to the real-world issues of agency settings--helping them make the most of their agency experience. The authors introduce students to the most salient issues in the field and facilitate the process of professional skill building and introspection that is necessary in becoming an effective helper. Case examples and exercises support and guide students through a variety of settings, client populations, and ethical and legal issues. The importance of diversity-sensitive practice is highlighted throughout the text.
