There are many organizations involved in providing these services, such as volunteer organizations, universities, colleges, businesses, public school boards and governments.

It is intended mainly for beginning students at universities and colleges, but practitioners and laypersons will find the selections stimulating and useful. The contributors are researchers and practitioners from all walks of life. They provide the reader with current research, stimulating thoughts, and insightful commentary.
