Review "At long last, a book that provides a stellar overview everything human services students need in relation to providing basic career services.The long and collaborative relationship Busacca and Rehfuss have, as editors, continues in this book in which they have packed as much as possible. The book is concise, yet comprehensive. The result is an invaluable resource for students enrolled in human services programs. Beginning with the foundation of necessary qualifications and factors related to the helping relationship, the content builds, layer by layer, to educate and inform readers as to the many work concerns, they can expect to encounter, when working with clients, and how to be helpful in those situations. Each chapter includes empirical support to the content and a plethora of web resources that will aid students in connecting to additional content important to the topic of career. This book makes a magnificent contribution to the field of human services and will be a valuable resource for students entering the profession. My only disappointment is that such a valuable resource was unavailable when pursuing my own degree in human services!" -Susan R.
