About the Book

The present book is an attempt to bring clarity to the subject of guidance and counseling for those who wish to take it up professionally as a career. Keeping this in view, the present book has been written with three clear objectives, (i) to enable learners to understand the real meaning of guidance and counseling, (ii) to give the professionals all essential information and, (iii) to make the students, irrespective of their discipline, in developing insight into guidance and counselling. It is hoped that the humble effort made in the form of this book will assist in the accomplishment of the understanding of the various concepts, and methods applied in guidance and counselling.

Regarding the organization, the book consists of twenty five chapters. This book is primarily intended to serve as a textbook for graduate, post-graduate students as well as for professionals working in the field of guidance and counselling. It is hoped that the book shall provide meaningful insights to all interested in guidance and counselling. This book is, in fact, a sharing of my experience of teaching the subject at graduate and postgraduate levels as well as my experience as a student counsellor. It has been observed that there is a complete vacuum regarding the relevant literature in India to help and guide the professionals in initiating and conducting the guidance and counseling programme at various levels. The present book it a humble effort to fill up this vacuum.

This book has materialized after more than a decade of Teaching and professional field experience. The subject matter has been discussed with various experts and eminent teachers for perspective. Lastly, I would like to thank my teachers and colleagues for all help. To my wife Mrs. Shabnam Alam, I must thank for bearing with me during the course of this work.
