I found this book to be very practical and down-to-earth. It is very interesting to view counseling this way--and much easier/cost-effective than years of psychotherapy!

3. The first meeting
4. The counseling process
5. Diagnose the problem but treat the whole person
6. Counseling "by the book" or by THE Book?
