Counseling Today Feb 2012

A calming presence
By Lynne Shallcross
In a post-9111 world, disaster response and crisis counseling have become essential areas of knowledge and skill for all professional counselors. But in the immediate aftermath  of a tragedy, it is meeting clients’ basic needs and offering a sense of safety and stabilization-not providing therapy-that is paramount.

The transformative power of trauma
By Jonathan Rollins
The treatment of trauma often centers on clients’ impairment  and deficits, but the still-emerging concept of post-traumatic growth aligns with counselors’ focus on clients’ strengths, wellness and capacity for positive change.

Bringing mindfulness into your counseling practice
By Andrew Peterson

Reader Viewpoint
