By David Joel Miller, MS, Licensed Therapist & Licensed Counselor.
Work has resumed on the book I am writing about counseling and therapy. The planned release date is sometime early next year.
This book is a collection of ideas about counseling and how to get the most out of the process. It is designed specifically for the non-professional. It will cover a lot of questions that so many of you have asked about counseling, therapy, mental health, substance abuse and related topics. It will include answers to questions such as:
When should you go for counseling?
How will you know if it can help you?
Is Counseling safe and what will I need to do to make it safe and effective?
What kind of professional am I looking for?
How much does it cost and what can I do if I can’t pay?
And much more
Some of this material is from posts to counselorssoapbox.com and readers questions to the blog. Much new material has been added each day as the writing progresses.
It is still not too late to get your question answered. Ask now and I will try to answer your question on the blog. Longer or more detailed questions may well end up in the book.
The title is still a work in progress. Any suggestions?
As the book writing progresses, the time for blog posts is getting more difficult to include in my schedule. So some days we may need to skip posts. There have been some spectacular posts recently among the blogs I subscribe too and I plan to share some of these via reposts.
