A Civilian Counselor’s Primer for Counseling Veterans” (2nd edition) by Herbert A. Exum, Jose E. Coll & Eugenia L. Weiss is a practical and valuable resource for clinicians working with veterans and their families. Concisely written, the primer covers the essentials of what professional counselors and mental health practitioners need to know in order to work effectively with veterans.

It can also be used in an academic setting as a guide for students learning how to provide competent counseling services with military clients.

The book delineates the role of military organization and culture and how these facets pertain to the veteran and service delivery. It addresses the stressors associated with combat as well as the most common counseling issues for the veteran population along with up-to-date interventions. The primer also familiarizes the reader with military terms and veteran support organizations.

Practitioner self-assessments, case studies and symptom checklists are interspersed through out the book, rendering it as a highly pragmatic and informative asset. Additionally, there is a section on the demands faced by military families and ways of assisting the combat veteran with family reintegration. The primer is a timely tool for counselors responding to the current needs of service personnel and their families.
