Because this book's main objective is to foster and promote student development, it should appeal to those who advise, counsel, and teach undergraduate and graduate students, particularly those in psychology, education, and other social sciences. Along with a plethora of stimulating ideas for practice and research, the book contains the results of research having immediate applications to students' educational and career direction needs. Readers will find more than 90 articles in this book distributed across three significant challenges to students' development: the academic, occupational, and personal. Further, the material presented has been organized around three distinct approaches to these challenges: advising, career development, and field placement activities. The source for these articles is the official journal, Teaching of Psychology, of Division Two of the American Psychological Association.personal contact over a sufficient period of time to be able to write a strong letter, and he or she replies, aquot;but no one else ...
