Thoroughly revised and updated, "Community Counseling: A Multicultural-Social Justice Perspective, International Edition" now more than ever clearly describes and illustrates the practice of community counseling by discussing the most current issues and practices for community work in the 21st century. The Fourth Edition gives special emphasis to the practices of diversity, ethics, and the role of the counselor as a change agent and advocate. Focusing on how to promote change and growth, the text delivers proven guidelines for planning and implementing productive community counseling programs. It also provides readers with a basic understanding of the role of the community counselor, the services offered by community agencies, and the settings in which they are offered. Packed with practical, relevant, and timely examples, the text examines four vital facets of counseling: direct community counseling, direct client services (outreach), indirect community services (influencing public policy), and indirect client services (client advocacy).
