For students taking courses in career counseling.
Help future counselors develop an usable understanding of both theory and technique.
Foundations of Career Counseling: A Case-Based Approach is built around a series of case studies that contextualize and bring to life all aspect of career counseling from theories through assessment, intervention, and education. Designed for students taking courses in career counseling, this practical and engaging text places a strong emphasis on diversity and on passing along a clear and concrete grasp of how to do effective career counseling.
Balancing both theory and application, all of the chapters contain case material like transcripts, examples, and sample assessment results that illustrate Suzanne Dugger’s clear explanations of concepts. The text will help future counselors develop a thorough understanding of working with clients across the lifespan (from children through older adults). And the text also provides a good foundation for working with specific populations such as persons with disabilities, military veterans, ex-offenders, homemakers, and caretakers transitioning back into the world of work.

This book focuses on the legislative process through a case study of the Veterans Millennium Health Care Act of 1999 signed by President Clinton on November 30, 1999. This research examines the roles and interactions of various actors in the legislative process (i.e., congressional party leaders, executive branch, veterans interest groups, state health care providers and Congress) during the first session of the 106th Congress in overcoming what traditionally is an extremely lethargic, slow and relatively resistant structural environment. The principle finding of this study include the structural role orientations of legislators towards utilizing already formed interpersonal relationships to 'fast-track' the 1999 veteran's legislation in record time.

Develop understanding of both theory and technique using in-depth, engaging case studies.
Rather than simply describing career development theories, Foundations of Career Counseling: A Case-Based Approach uses seven realistic, diverse client scenarios to help students connect with the material and master career counseling content and skills. Balancing both theory and application, chapters about the career counseling process, intake interviews, and the use of tests, card sorts, and resources contain transcripts, examples, and sample assessment results from simulated sessions with these fictional clients. Suzanne Dugger's down-to-earth writing style clearly explains complex concepts in everyday language. Future counselors will develop a thorough understanding of both theory and technique pertaining to career development interventions with children and young adults as well as with adults-including specific populations such as persons with disabilities, military veterans, ex-offenders, homemakers and caretakers transitioning back into the world of work-and even themselves!

"Tastefully illustrated, "Sex and Intimacy for Wounded Veterans" is a one-of-a-kind position and device resource, especially for anyone who has experienced limb loss or serious genital injury." -Mitchell Tepper, PhD, MPH, author of "Regain That Feeling: Secrets to Sexual Self-Discovery" Human contact and sexuality are natural and essential parts of our lives. Need and desire do not dissipate when someone has experienced traumatic injury. While injuries may cause profound changes to one's life, intimacy and sexual activity are still possible-and could even present new opportunities. "Sex and Intimacy for Wounded Veterans: A Guide to Embracing Change" was written by occupational therapists who work with wounded veterans, but it is applicable to all who've experienced life-changing injury. Designed to help educate veterans, family members, significant others, and clinicians, this manual provides practical information and illustrations to help readers reengage in sexual activity and intimacy, with or without adaptations and modifications. The diagnoses considered when creating "Sex and Intimacy for Wounded Veterans: A Guide to Embracing Change" include but are not limited to: traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), genital injury, spinal cord injury (SCI ), and orthopedic injuries involving muscles, bones, nerves, and limb amputations. Regardless of injury, sexual pleasure is a realistic goal, as is the ability to form intimate relationships with others. "Veterans and spouses often describe difficulty with sexual intimacy as their greatest hurdle to healing, while doctors and therapists frequently describe sex as the issue they are most unprepared to address. In "Sex and Intimacy for Wounded Veterans: A Guide to Embracing Change," both veterans and health care workers will find a comprehensive and compassionate guide. We should put a copy of this manual in the hands of every patient, spouse, and medical provider who walks through the door of a Military Treatment Facility. " --Emilie E. Godwin, Ph.D., LPC, MFT, Assistant Professor and Director of Psychotherapy & Family Services, Virginia Commonwealth University Neuropsychology Traumatic Brain Injury Model System of Care *Paid for by grants from the Bob Woodruff Foundation and the SemperMax Support Fund. Sex and Intimacy for Wounded Veterans is offered at a nominal charge to optimize its availability to all who can benefit by its use. Any proceeds from the sale of the guide will be used to purchase complimentary copies for distribution at military and veteran treatment facilities.
