Counseling books can be heavy and when you want an idea or a new
technique, you really don't have time to go through those heavy
books--or they don't even have what you're looking for. What I
really like and appreciate about this book is that you can open it
up and find what you need. The ideas are easy to implement and the
read through is quick. -- Carol Miller, School Counselor "The
Middle School Counselor"
