From the Paper:

"The first chapter of this text gives an overview of what counseling is. Vacc and Loesch (2000) break counseling down with ten aspects of counseling. First counseling is a process, which means it is on-going. Second the essence of the counseling process is the relationship. The third aspect is that the person providing the service is known as the counselor. The fourth aspect is that the counselor is a professional. Fifth, the person who is getting the help is known as the clients. The sixth aspect of counseling is that it takes place in stages. The seventh aspect is that counseling is multidimensional. Eighth, counseling can use a variety of modalities. Ninth, counseling can be provided using either remedial or preventative perspectives or both. And lastly counseling is amenable to evaluation. I believe that the authors addressed this issue first, because in order to understand the world of professional counseling you must know what professional counseling is."
