Preface

Preface

Most books on counseling are written for professionals, psychologists, clinicians, or others seeking certification as professional counselors. Yet almost everyone becomes involved in counseling in a more informal sense. Thus most people need to understand and be able to apply basic (nonclinical) techniques of good counseling.

Personal Counseling is designed for the layperson. Although it teaches some of the techniques and principles used by professionals, it was written for managers, supervisors, financial and retirement counselors, law officers, or parents—anyone who needs to learn good counseling techniques even though they do not have the time to take courses prepared for professionals. It is also ideal for peer counseling.

This book is designed to be read with a pencil. You will be encouraged to complete a number of exercises that provide an opportunity to apply the concepts presented. Once completed, you can strengthen your counseling skills even further by using the material presented for review and follow-up.

GOOD LUCK!
