Review quote

"Due to the nature of their work, most practitioners need assistance in honing their clinical skills and staying healthy. "Doing Better gives practitioners just such a resource. In this volume, Kottler, Jones, and their associates provide readers with scholarly based but pragmatic ways of helping themselves and growing through their work. Thanks to this book, we now have a blueprint for developing as professionals in the best possible way.."
-Samuel T. Gladding, Ph.D., Chair, Department of Counseling, Wake Forest University
"The authors have a warm, insightful, and stimulating writing style that encourages readers to think through critical professional issues and examine their own development and practice. This book is of value to experienced counselors and therapists looking for a way to reflect on what they do and where they are going in their careers.."
-James M. Benshoff, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Counseling and Educational Development, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
