Alexander Street releases comprehensive counseling collection

(5 October 2015,  Alexandria, VA) Alexander Street, a leading provider of digital content for libraries, announced the release of its newest collection to support the study of counseling and therapy, Counseling and Therapy Online: Current Practices.

Counseling and Therapy Online: Current Practices is a resource for supporting both undergraduate and graduate-level counseling curriculum. Together with an Editorial Review Board of top faculty and librarians, Alexander Street identified the most important topics in counseling today. It then mapped the text, video, and transcripts featured in Counseling and Therapy Online: Current Practices to those topics, which include DSM-V, multicultural and social justice, human sexuality, groups, trauma and PTSD, addiction, research and evaluation, ethics, neuroscience, positive psychology, and master therapy.

The collection features:

  • 300 hours of video, most of which have been created since 2012, mapped to the most crucial topics in counseling today.
  • 400 anonymous transcripts from real therapy sessions, providing a wealth of opportunity for research and learning.
  • 1,200 hours of conference presentations, lectures, and workshops from renowned counselors, psychologists, and practitioners.
  • 45,000 pages of e-books and periodicals, including the American Counseling Association’s Counseling Today.

“Users will love the currency of the content in this collection, since it was developed with the most cutting-edge topics and perspectives in counseling in mind. We worked tirelessly with our counseling advisory board to ensure that this collection will integrate seamlessly with any counseling curriculum,” said Taney Shondel, Senior Editor at Alexander Street.
