Counseling for Wellness and Prevention : Helping People Become Empowered in Systems and Settings
Counseling for Wellness and Prevention brings Preventative Counseling, one of prevention’s founding texts, firmly into the twenty-first century. Counseling for Wellness and Prevention thoroughly updates and significantly expands on discussions of practical applications and emerging best practices. Counselors and counseling psychologists will find evidence-based, contemporary guidance to help them engage in needed efforts to help clients and the general population to enhance their overall wellness and ward off future dysfunction. Author Robert Conyne demonstrates the ways in which the traditional model of one-to-one therapy can be expanded to embrace wellness and prevention as well as strategies for putting into practice a broad range of environmental and system change strategies, such as advocacy and community organization. The book is well-suited for adoption in counselor-education courses and includes explicit connections to CACREP accreditation standards. It’s also an excellent choice for programs in psychology, where the APA-approved prevention guidelines for psychologists are now available, and in social work, where prevention and community change have long been hallmarks.
