Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(3), 257–258. Reviews the book, Effective Therapy for College Students: Alternatives to Traditional Counseling by Eugenia Hanfmann (1978). The book is organized into two parts. The first three chapters are devoted to the author's perceptions of the counseling center in a college environment. The remaining chapters cover various stages and factors in counseling and/or therapy with college students. Hanfmann's presentation is historically interesting, but it has limitations for contemporary use. It is informative in giving one a sense of the workings of a counseling center. The use of reports from students regarding their experiences in counseling compliments the case presentations and highlights the productive and unproductive courses in counseling. In summary, Hanfmann is clearly successful in her presentation about personal counseling with college students. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
