This book is a collection of such turning points, which the editors term defining moments, contributed by professionals in different stages of their counseling careers. You'll find personal stories, lessons learned, and unique insights in their narratives that will impact your own development as a practitioner, regardless of whether you are a graduate student or a senior professional.
