The Future of Counseling Psychology: Improving Quality of Life for Persons with Chronic Health Issues
Chwalisz, Kathleen
Counseling Psychologist, v36 n1 p98-107 2008
The literature review and focus group findings that compose the Major Contribution illustrate how counseling psychologists can integrate expertise from various subdisciplines (vocational psychology, health psychology, multicultural psychology) to effectively address the needs of those living with HIV. Given changes in the nature of health problems and increasing prevalence of lifestyle-related difficulties (e.g., smoking, obesity), psychologists will encounter increasing numbers of clients with similarly complex vocational concerns. Counseling psychologists need to be prepared to utilize a range of intervention strategies to address the individual and contextual aspects of clients' concerns. Implications of these findings for the future of counseling psychology are discussed, and Maguire et al.'s grounded theory model is considered as a framework for counseling psychology intervention.
