"BECOMING A HELPER is a warm, instructive conversation between two experienced helpers and students embarking on a career in the helping professions. Corey and Corey provide important practical and reflective information while communicating care for the students and their future clients. BECOMING A HELPER is the perfect first semester text for training in the helping professions." "A comprehensive orientation to the counseling profession that helps beginning level helpers become aware, knowledgeable, and skillful in facilitating the skills of empathy and professional competence." "This text is user friendly, practical, supportive, and encouraging to counselors-in-training. The information provided is based on current research and offers the readers best practices within the field. The authors do an outstanding job of balancing colloquial language with academic language-making the material interesting, engaging, yet relevant. I believe this text is an excellent resource for not only students, but also for supervisors and current practitioners."
