Product Overview

This book is for counselors and counselors-in-training who are interested in exploring the many employment options that are available to persons with a graduate degree in counseling. Days in the Lives of Counselors is a collection of personal essays from counselors, each of whom has presented a description of his or her own unique and rewarding experiences. Each offers descriptions of his or her typical activities, including the challenges, the paperwork, the meetings, the successes, and even the frustrations. Many also share their hints on surviving the stresses that are inherent in a career in counseling.The chapters are clustered in categories within similar settings, but each person's experience is unique and different. In addition to school and college counselors, counselor educators, and mental health counselors, contributors include a sexologist, an editor, a gerontologist, an addictions specialist, a counselor who is a part-time deputy sheriff, and a professional association manager. Also included are two international stories, one by a school counselor working in Guam and another by a school counselor who worked in Africa. But all of the essays have one thing in common-they are written by counselors who love their work.
