The sixth edition of Counseling: A Comprehensive Profession, likes it predecessors, covers every major topic in the counseling field, e.g., history, theory, practice, specialties, current trends, and does so in a very readable and interesting style.  The book is developmental in nature and leads the reader logically and smoothly from one important area to another.  The chapters are illustrated and up-to-date with the most recent research in the field.  This book is often used by students as the main source in studying for the National Counselor Exam (NCE).  It is considered the "gold standard" by which other books in the field are judged since it has been the best-selling book in this area of counseling for 20 years.
