Supported and co-published by the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), Counselor Preparation is the only all-inclusive, long-term national study of counselor preparation programs. It is an outstanding reference for faculty, administrators, students, and practitioners alike, offering comparative data for administrative decisions and a comprehensive resource for students who want to know more about an institution’s ability to meet their personal requirements, academic needs and career goals.
In addition to program information, the authors have included statistical interpretations on entry level programs (master’s and specialists) and doctoral level counselor preparation programs. The authors also interpret the current status and probable trends of preparation programs within each counseling specialty, and include courses to be added or dropped and other anticipated changes within departments.This book is an outstanding resource for faculty, administrators, students, and practitioners. It is now considered a classic reference for the counseling profession, containing vital information for counselor educators and students.
"The eleventh edition of Counselor Preparation: Programs, Faculty, Trends continues the excellent tradition, begun by Joe Hollis, of capturing the essence of the counseling profession at a moment in time. Clawson and Henderson have done exceptional work in gathering, editing and explaining what is happening in counselor education programs nationally. This book has practical usefulness in locating counseling professionals and programs in counselor education. It also has potency in predicting the evolution of the field as the editors have surveyed those engaged in the profession as to where counseling is going in regard to courses and emphases. This text is a must own reference!" -- Samuel T. Gladding, President-Elect of the American Counseling Association and chair of the Department of Counseling at Wake Forest University
