"Living in a nation where all of
this, and even more, is going on in either our life, our family, or our
community, makes us a candidate for a support group. Even if you don't
need it now, it's nice to know where you can turn if you do in the
future. If anyone reaches out their hand for help, they deserve to have
someone reach back. We want to be that hand."

"As associate editor of the theory
section of the Journal of Mental Health Counseling (JMHC), my broad
objective is to contribute to the process of publishing the best
available theory articles that will serve to distinguish the unique
identity of mental health counseling and thereby contribute to
establishing core provider status for our profession. This goal speaks
to Kelly's (1996) suggestion that we endeavor to "capture and
maintain a competitive share of the mental health market" (p. 2).
In this article--my mission statement, if you will--I consider several
theoretical issues that I want to see further developed in the JMHC. The
ensuing discussion is informed by my own theoretical journey that has
led me to to embrace a social constructionist and solution-focused
position for mental health counseling (Guterman, 1994, 1996a)."
