Human Services Dictionary by Howard Rosenthal

At last, the discipline of Human Services has a dictionary to call its own! Dr. Howard Rosenthal, author of the academic bestseller Encyclopedia of Counseling has packed this work from cover to cover with reader-friendly definitions. Clearly phrased with a sensitivity to all readers, his definitions are simple enough for the beginning undergraduate student, but in-depth enough for serious practitioners, graduate students, and educators. Over 2,500 entries include brief bios of important figures in the field, as well as illustrative explanations of slang and pop culture terms vital to successful human service worker-client communication. A useful innovation is that his definitions are often intentionally worded to help students tackle common exam questions. The dictionary features a definition of Human Services as well as a history of the discipline both written by psychiatrist Dr. Harold McPheeters, the Father of Human Services Finally, a handy resource guide is included that delineates common statistical tests, psychoeducational instruments, and organizations. An excellent resource for anyone in Human Services, this dictionary is the essential reference tool for both the aspiring and seasoned professional. Book jacket.
