First Paragraph:

Popular Culture in Counseling, Psychotherapy, and Play-Based Interventions is a collection of works written by researchers, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and persons with specialized training in public relations, advertising, and the arts. The book takes a fresh look at the use of popular culture, innovative approaches, and creative techniques in research and counseling practices with clients of all ages. Although less a focus, the book also integrates popular culture with clinical training and supervision.
