Easy to understand, well written book.
Robyn J. Simpson
The book was exactly what I needed for my class, it was cheaper to rent than buy, but unfortunately it came with way too much highlighting in it.
Julie
Would recommend for a beginning counseling class, because book is brief.

Nystul's "Introduction to Counseling: An Art and Science Perspective" is an excellent book for the beginning counselor either at the undergraduate level or the graduate level (we all start somewhere). I was assigned this book for my first Master's level class and it provided an excellent background into my chosen field. When I read the book, it cured a lot of questions that I had about counseling. I learned a lot of information that I either did not know or realize. Specifically, the book not only introduces the reader to counseling techniques, but also provides an overview of theoretical approaches, ethics and legal issues, assessment and diagnosis, and diversity issues. In addition, this book gives information on counseling approaches with various populations (i.e. child, group, family, school, career and mental health etc). Also, Nystul (1999) provided background information as well as practical techniques for each theory that he explained. Moreover, this book gives a superb rendition of various types of counselors and the description of duties that they perform. My favorite parts of the book are the "personal notes" where the author gives a story or example to go along with his discussion of a subject. The personal notes provide a great modality for the reader to look at a concept in a realistic or life-like manner. Most importantly, the book is organized extremely well and makes reading a lot easier than most textbooks; it utilizes pictures, diagrams, charts and etc. to get the point across in an effective and efficient manner. As a graduate student who utilized this book, I would highly recommend this book to professors, counselors and counseling students.Read more ›

for someone who is just getting into counseling, there isn't much more I could have really asked for in this book, it covers all of the basics and is easy enough to keep you reading, while thorough enough to get all of the important building blocks in line for future classes, and great for referencing.

The book was exactly what I needed for my class, it was cheaper to rent than buy, but unfortunately it came with way too much highlighting in it. It kind of makes it hard for me to pinpoint what is important to me, and what was important to previous users of this book

Easy to read. Would recommend for a beginning counseling class, because book is brief. This is coming from a student in counselor education program.
