For courses in Counseling Interventions; Counseling Process; and Introduction to Counseling.
Practical with a wealth of examples, this text shows readers to how to be effective counselors in each aspect of the counseling process.
The Professional Counselor is organized, first and foremost, around the process of counseling–from the first session through termination. Individual chapters look at assessment, at goal setting, at treatment planning, and, finally, at termination. One of the key features that sets this text apart from a standard counseling process text is that it also examines and presents interventions from theoretical perspectives such as Affective Interventions, Cognitive Interventions, Behavioral Interventions, and Systemic Interventions (Chapters 8-11). As a result, interventions are presented not just as techniques, but they are rooted in theory and foundational theraputic perspectives.
From reviews of the text:
“[A] very clearly written text that the first-semester Master of Counseling students can easily grasp . . . . [C]hapters are structured in a manner that provides concreteness and continuity within the content. Therefore, it is easy to follow and understand for entry-level students. The written language of the book is very clear. The content is supported by good examples that help with the comprehension . . . . [T]he interventions (affective, cognitive, behavioral, and systemic) chapters are very well described.”
—Gulsah Kemer, University of Arizona State University
“[Key strengths are:] The authors include the multicultural perspectives in many chapters. The structure and organization for each chapter are well planned. [And] the writing style is easy to understand for the readers.”
—Yu-Fen Lin, University of North Texas Dallas
“[P]rovides the beginning counselor the opportunity for a comprehensive overview of the process of counseling while further delivering specific interventions and approaches (i.e. fundamental counseling skills) . . . . The key strengths of this text are the concise explanations of counseling concepts with practical clinical applications . . . . [M]any of my students comment on how helpful the text is in understanding the concepts of counseling . . . . This text is superior to others that I have used in that it explains practical applications of interventions and how to deliver those to the client.”
—Oscar Sida, University of Nevada Las Vegas

This title is also available with MyCounselingLab—an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with the text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students see key concepts demonstrated through video clips, practice what they learn, test their understanding, and receive feedback to guide their learning and ensure they master key learning outcomes.
As social media use explodes in popularity, teachers can now share resources and interact with a broad international audience of colleagues, scholars, students, and the general public. Teachers use sites such as Twitter to develop and hone their professional identities and manage others' impressions of them and their work. This text draws on extensive research to provide guidance about teachers' use of social media for professional development and identity formation. A conceptual framework drawing on Goffman's Theory of the Presentation of Self in Everyday Life and research into how users interact online informed the case studies of preservice teachers' experiences with social media. A secondary function of the book is to guide teachers through the process of conducting action research projects in their own classrooms. Use of social media involves more than just sharing links or scattered thoughts; savvy users consider a wide variety of methods and forms of interaction. This text shares research-based best practices for these forms of information sharing, including the effects of these practices on different audiences. Twitter and other forms of social media offer an easily accessible, free mode of communication; however, while asking a question and obtaining answers from people all over the globe is exciting, and while this process can be empowering for both the questioner and the responder, it can also be problematic as viewed from a quality control perspective. Is the information accurate? Does it reflect research-based best practices? What are some of the ways that teachers can and should form personae and identities on social media? What are the risks? This text chips away at these crucial questions.
Becoming a student again can be a daunting prospect, particularly if it has been a while. Written specifically for health care professionals undertaking continuing professional development and for those starting a health care degree, this book covers the key skills that underpin effective study, including time management, writing drafts and seeking feedback.
With three student case studies based in health care settings to illustrate examples, the book shows how experience can aid learning and how learning can be used to improve practice in the workplace. The book covers the vital issues that students will face including chapters on:
Studying for Continuing Professional Development in Health is a highly practical text, which will be an invaluable resource for health professionals entering higher education for the first time or returning after a long break.
The core of this textbook is a systematic and self-contained treatment of the nonlinear stabilization and output regulation problems. Its coverage embraces both fundamental concepts and advanced research outcomes and includes many numerical and practical examples. Several classes of important uncertain nonlinear systems are discussed. The state-of-the art solution presented uses robust and adaptive control design ideas in an integrated approach which demonstrates connections between global stabilization and global output regulation allowing both to be treated as stabilization problems.
Stabilization and Regulation of Nonlinear Systems takes advantage of rich new results to give students up-to-date instruction in the central design problems of nonlinear control, problems which are a driving force behind the furtherance of modern control theory and its application. The diversity of systems in which stabilization and output regulation become significant concerns in the mathematical formulation of practical control solutions-whether in disturbance rejection in flying vehicles or synchronization of Lorenz systems with harmonic systems-makes the text relevant to readers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Many exercises are provided to facilitate study and solutions are freely available to instructors via a download from springerextras.com.
Striking a balance between rigorous mathematical treatment and engineering practicality, Stabilization and Regulation of Nonlinear Systems is an ideal text for graduate students from many engineering and applied-mathematical disciplines seeking a contemporary course in nonlinear control. Practitioners and academic theorists will also find this book a useful reference on recent thinking in this field.
The latest volume in the Routledge International Studies in Higher Education Series, Academic and Professional Identities in Higher Education: The Challenges of a Diversifying Workforce, reviews the implications of new forms of academic and professional identity, which have emerged largely as a result of a broadening disciplinary base and increasing permeability between higher education and external environments.
The volume addresses the challenges faced by those responsible for the wellbeing of academic faculty and professional staff. International perspectives examine current practice against a background of rapidly changing policy contexts, focusing on the critical 'people dimension' of enhancing academic and professional activity, while also addressing national, socio-economic, and community agendas. Consideration is given to mainstream academic faculty and professional staff, researchers, library and information professionals, people with an interest in teaching and learning, and those involved in individual projects or institutional development.
The following provide the key themes of Academic and Professional Identities in Higher Education: The Challenges of a Diversifying Workforce:
