A new publication by Plural Publishing Inc, San Diego, Calif, entitled Counseling in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology addresses a common concern of students and practitioners: that counseling in the field of communication disorders is an essential dimension of professional practice, but what it entails can be a mystery. The new text illustrates how to integrate the concept of counseling into clinical practice.

The new book is replete with a variety of case studies, clinical guidelines, and actual transcripts of counseling interventions with clients and their families. It is designed to be a practical “toolbox” of specific counseling methods by authors Anthony DiLollo, PhD, and Robert A. Neimeyer, PhD, who offer a comprehensive, novel, and empirically informed approach to counseling, applicable to a broad range of speech, language, swallowing, and hearing disorders, says the publisher. The book’s sections include: Getting Oriented, Theoretical Foundations, The Process of Counseling, The Clinician’s Toolbox, and Paying It Forward.
