In addition to providing illustrations of specific contexts calling for helping skills, Reynolds makes extensive use of references to books and articles related both to student affairs and to higher education in general… The citations not only provide solid grounding for the points Reynolds makes and the information she provides, but also offer a rich resource for further exploration of issues and skills related to helping in higher education settings.
Readers will… leave with a more comprehensive understanding of the scope, necessity, and particulars of helping skills needed to work effectively with students and to help them succeed. That kind of knowledge will benefit both higher education professionals and the students and others with whom they interact.”
