This book focuses on counselling intervention strategies from the unique perspective of an individual's life-span development, and emphasizes preventive techniques that can be used with normally developing persons. The book is organized around the progressive developmental stages - from childhood through older age. The authors identify, chapter by chapter, those issues which counselling interventions can address at each developmental stage - for example, self-identity and healthy lifestyle development in adolescents, family violence in young adults, retirement transitions for older adults. Counselling strategies for each issue are then presented, and chapters feature case studies, discussion questions, and resources for further information. Unlike many other books on counselling strategies, this book's orientation around developmental stages and preventive measures makes it unique.
