This book is primarily for psychology students, a text for a first course in counseling procedures, for persons expecting to work in colleges or high schools. The book is written from the point of view of different problems rather than from that of the specialist in vocational guidance, marriage counseling, or psychotherapy. It tries to stress common principles underlying many types of counseling activity rather than to outline special methods for each.
