When clients are not appearing, counselors in private practice use the time to make their services known to the public and to referral sources. The contents of this essential volume provide articles that can be used to communicate areas of practice and that impress upon prospective clients the benefits of counseling.

Part 1 gives the text of practical articles for issues and problems commonly seen in counseling. The author suggests that the articles can be sent out periodically, depending on the counselor's areas of practice, with the addition of the counselor's own contact information so that referring persons and clients can easily reach the counselor.
Part 2 is a short lesson book for teachers and school counselors, on teaching empathy in the classroom.
Part 3 is a review of practical matters to assist with conducting the counseling practice in a way that is professional and to support the therapeutic nature of the relationship. The Code of Ethics is designed for quick review by clients and referral sources.
