Summary: "The chapters in this handbook encompass both traditional and emerging areas in counseling psychology. The associate editors (Linda M. Subich for Volume 1 and Jean A. Carter for Volume 2) and I had three goals for shaping the two volumes of the handbook. We first sought to ensure that we encompassed the traditional areas of counseling psychology as well as incorporating the evolution in the specialty. Second, we endeavored to capture the new and emerging areas of practice settings, populations, and perspectives. Finally, we wanted to consult with well-respected counseling psychology scholars to ensure the breadth of topics to be included in the handbook as well as the scope of the chapters and to garner suggestions for authors who could write for the handbook. Volume 1 was designed to include traditional areas that are covered in handbooks, providing a strong foundation in theories and research in counseling psychology, and Volume 2 (see record 2012-03487-000) focused on both historic and evolving applications. To address our first goal, we began developing topics for the two volumes by reviewing the content domains defined as counseling psychology's unique areas that were outlined in the Petition for Recognition for the Specialty to the American Psychological Association (APA) Commission on Recognition on Specialties and Proficiencies in Psychology (CRSSP), which were approved in 2005. Our second goal was accomplished by including chapters on the application of counseling psychology research to practice and policy in new settings (correctional facilities, schools, and hospitals), new populations (elderly people, low income), and new areas of growth for counseling psychologists (health psychology, working with the homeless). We wanted chapters that emphasized the growing application or policy implications of our traditional areas of scholarship, such as the relationship between work and mental health, health care disparities, and the ethical implications of social justice work. Finally, to address our third goal, we drew on recommendations from consulting scholars in counseling psychology to identify (a) general areas to include in the handbook, (b) the scope of each chapter, and (c) potential authors for those chapters. Their comments were integrated and conveyed to authors who agreed to write each chapter. We are grateful for the time these scholars spent on this task and appreciative of their contributions to the handbook. Consulting editors were Y. Barry Chung, Ruth E. Fassinger, Puncky Paul Heppner, Andy Horne, Brent Mallinckrodt, Michael Mobley, Steve Quintana, Elizabeth M. Vera, and Mary O'Leary Wiley. Our target audience for the handbook includes graduate students and established and developing researchers and practitioners. We envisioned, furthermore, that students in counseling psychology would find essential content in these two volumes. Students in other areas of psychology would find the material valuable as a supplementary text, enhancing their own specialty areas, and gaining a sound familiarity with major specialties across the field. We also envisioned the chapters as useful in providing updated research and applications for counseling psychology researchers and practitioners, as well as professionals in complementary fields such as social work and behavioral health specialties. The strong emphasis on emerging and developing areas leads the reader toward counseling psychology's future"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved).
