Encyclopedia of Counseling

"Howard Rosenthal is a gifted and humorous writer as well as a scholar's scholar who has a way of explaining complex concepts so they are understandable and easily remembered. The fourth edition of Encyclopedia of Counseling proves that and provides the reader with all the information necessary to pass the National Counselor Exam or any other test related to it. Rosenthal's book is exceptional and worth reading just for the fun of it."—Samuel T. Gladding, PhD, Professor of Counseling, Wake Forest University

With more questions and answers than any other edition, the Encyclopedia of Counseling, Fourth Edition, is still the only book you need to pass the NCE, CPCE, and other counseling exams.
