Description

Written specifically for counselors-in-training, this practical new text features an engaging writing style with real-life cases and applications. AN ADVANCED LIFESPAN ODYSSEY FOR COUNSELING PROFESSIONALS, 1st Edition, covers the typical lifespan topics, but with a focus on developmental issues you’ll encounter as a counseling professional — and the strategies and techniques to deal with them. Case studies and discussions of current issues anchor the material in the real world. Reflections from parents and current counselors further enhance the text’s applied emphasis, giving you ideas for how to integrate the theories and other information into real-life practice. This is a book you’ll want to keep on hand long after you leave the course.
