Lupe and Randy Alle-Corliss' book addresses the practical, hands-on field experience that every student in human services is required to explore. The authors go beyond providing a basic orientation to field course work to zero in on more in-depth skills that the advanced student must master, such as what models of therapy apply to different client populations. A journal-type format with an emphasis on self-awareness makes this book an especially useful tool, whether the student is in the classroom or out in the field in a human service agency.
