  • My work in Interspecies Communication over the past fourteen years has been and continues to be a joy. I am very grateful for the instruction, writings, shared wisdom, support and friendship of many communicators. The work of the following people is of great significance in my own understanding and skill: Penelope Smith, Betty Lewis, Stacey Gorley, Sananjaleen, Jeri Ryan, Carol Gurney, and Kate Solisti. Penelope’s journal, and the hundreds of people who write for it provide ongoing insights for me. While it is impossible to list all of the human writers, teachers, animal owners, animals, trees, plants, rocks, bodies of water, Guides, Devic intelligences and nature spirits that have played a role in helping me to grow in understanding, I would like to thank them anyway.

    "The psychologist, Robert Wicks, urges us to recognize our responsibility to exercise mentoring, a time-honored process that occurs within our ongoing relationships. Through mentoring, whether it is informal or intentional, we share the wisdom we have gained from our experiences and we seek insights from others. The aim of Wicks’s book is to provide helps by which we can mentor with greater intentionality and information that enhances what we already know. He also outlines characteristics to look for in a mentor when we are seeking one. Near the end of the book, he presents frequently asked questions and his answers: a list that summarizes his mentoring guidelines, and a short annotated bibliography.

  • The book contains helpful appendices. One deals with 'Answers to Common Questions on Mentoring,' another with 'Readings to Enrich the Mentoring Process: An Annotated Bibliography.' We can be grateful that a seasoned mentor like Robert Wicks has shared his wisdom with us.

    In short chapters he presents forty lessons for mentoring, for sharing wisdom. Some lessons are basic to any healthy relationship, such as being respectful of others, letting people tell their stories, and being patient with others. Others deal more formally with this particular form of relationship, such as what to do when the mentor feels overwhelmed by a story told or a question asked by the person seeking mentoring.

The American Counseling Association is made up of approximately 43,000 members, representing a combined wealth of experience (and experiences), diversity and knowledge. Counseling Today wanted to tap into this deep reservoir of wisdom, so we contacted member practitioners from all over the country and asked them to share their “best lessons learned” within the counseling profession — whether revelatory “a-ha!” moments or instances of gradually obtained insight that exert lasting influence and continue to feed their professional growth.
Our hope is that some of this shared wisdom can be applied along the various pathways our readers are traveling, thereby enriching their journeys as counselors, counselor educators and students.
