"Haddock and Whitman bring together, for the first time ever, a comprehensive collection of critical topics and components every counselor educator can use in the classroom in educating, training, and preparing future counselor educators. This text allows students to engage in open classroom discussions, case illustrations, and guided practice exercises, but, more importantly, each chapter stimulates thinking, reflection, and introspection. Every counselor education program would benefit from connecting their students with this text."
