Engaging and student-friendly, An Overview of the Human Services is designed for undergraduates just beginning to study the field of human services. Because the field encompasses many career opportunities, skills, client populations, and job duties, this text not only introduces students to the field, but also helps them to decide which specialty is right for them. With more than 14 years of teaching experience in the renowned human service program at California State University, Fullerton, and experience as a clinical psychotherapist in a variety of human service agencies, author Kristi Kanel is well versed in current trends in human services and knows how to motivate students to learn and appreciate the material. An Overview of the Human Services provides a thorough history of the field; a detailed overview of human services agencies, jobs, workers, and populations served; a clear analysis of the major theories of causality; and helpful special chapters on important topics, such as ethics and stress management. At the same time, the book moves beyond lecture-style instruction, bringing the concepts to life and actively engaging students in the subject matter via a wide range of special features.
