The Being and Doing of Career Counselling
“This book is excellent. It is well-written and a good read. Clearly, through the author’s creativity, he has pushed out the envelope on what models and techniques are appropriate and he has pierced a lot of the rigidity in the field.”
EDWIN L. HERR- Distinguished Professor of Education, The Pennsylvania State University
