Counseling Across the Lifespan expands the perimeters of counseling with its emphasis on preventive techniques for adjustment problems in the lifespan of a normal individual. This cogent work focuses on counseling intervention strategies from the unique perspective of an individual?s lifespan, placing techniques in the proper development context. By concentrating on life stages?from childhood through old age?the authors identify the nature and origin of various psychological issues such as self-identity and healthy lifestyle development in adolescents, family violence in young adults, or retirement transitions for older adults. The intervention tools needed to confront these issues are presented through succinct pedagogical features including case examples, checklists for evaluating clients, and exercises. Unlike other counseling texts, this book?s orientation around developmental stages and preventive measures makes it a landmark contribution to its field of study. Ideal for advanced courses in counseling methods and skills, the volume is also valuable as an adjunct text for the human development courses required in all counselor education programs.
