Counseling Adults for Life Transitions.
Walz, Garry R.; Benjamin, Libby
Adult counseling is assuming increasing importance in counselor education and training. Most important is the developmental aspect of growth all through life, since adulthood is not a static period but can be as fraught with conflict and choice as childhood or adolescence. Outlines describe some important differences between young people and adults, various psychological and educational adult problems and several necessary adult coping factors. Issues and trends in adult counseling are presented, along with some predictions for the future of adult counseling. A reference section is included for further in-depth study and review.
