Healthy Development as the Basis for Mental Health Counseling Theory.
Hershenson, David B.
Journal of Mental Health Counseling, v15 n4 p430-37 Oct 1993
Sees healthy development as specified aim of mental health counseling. Classifies theories of development along two dimensions: person's internal drive and person's relationship to environment. Contends that each pole implies different role for counselors, that counselors must combine roles of cultivator and coach, and that mental health counseling must construct theory of counseling that dictates combination of roles.
