"I find this product is one of the strongest on the market that is
more inclusive of the whole lifespan and includes the holistic
considerations. The traditional separation of career counseling and
personal counseling is bridged in this text. This is an excellent
move to unite the counseling profession, and to demonstrate that
the two cannot be separated."
"This is a very comprehensive, thorough, and inclusive reference text within the field of career development and career counseling. The author provides in-depth, contextual information related to serving special populations, including female and male clients, clients with disabilities, racial/ethnic minority clients, and clients within a variety of age groups."
