This book is a T1 for graduate and advanced courses on career counseling/development. The approach is novel and has not been done to date. In this proposed text, Zunker integrates career counseling/development with mental health counseling. Thus the book builds on the framework that career counseling cannot be viewed in isolation of mental health issues; an individual needs to viewed as a whole person whose psyche and mental health are delicately intertwined. He provides a solid foundation on career theory and development but then goes into the second part of the book, which deals with how mental health and career issues are intertwined and how a career counselor or mental health counselor can intervene. This book is written by the author of the best-selling text in Career Counseling - Vernon Zunker. His book Career Counseling: A Holistic Approach is in its seventh edition and is the most widely adopted book in Career Counseling, selling on average 3,000 units in one calendar year. This book is written as a stand alone text (as we have incorporated basic theory) or could be used as a supplement to his best selling book. The book is practical in nature, offering specific interventions to deal with counseling individuals with career and personal concerns. The idea that mental health and career counseling should be more closely tied together is gaining prominence. Historically career guidance and counseling has been taught separately focusing on career development theories and application. It is now becoming more obvious that career issues are closely tied to mental health and visa versa and thus the timing is right for this book's release. The author believes that this book will eventually replace his other text. THis book's most prominent features and benefits include:New approach which interweaves career counseling and mental healthPractical, step-by-step guidanceAccessible writing styleTimely and cutting edgeBest-selling author
