This second edition of Career Counseling Across the Lifespan: Community, School, Higher Education, and Beyond is the latest volume in the Issues in Career Development Series, edited by Drs. Grafton Eliason, Mark Lepore, Jeff Samide, and John Patrick, from California University of Pennsylvania and Clarion University of Pennsylvania. The purpose of Career Development Across the Lifespan is to provide a broad and in-depth look at the field of career development as it applies to individuals involved in all areas of community counseling, school counseling, and higher education. The book will examine some of the field's major theories, themes, approaches, and newest models incorporating chapters from national and international career counseling experts. Specific emphasis is spent examining issues reflective of today's challenges in developing and maintaining a workforce that is diverse, flexible, and efficient. Readers will be provided with an action-based framework built on the best available research. This text book is truly the culmination of a decade’s work, compiling comprehensive studies from four previous volumes and updating key concepts in career counseling with the most contemporary theories and innovations. We examine three primary domains of career counseling throughout all of the developmental stages of the lifespan: community, schools K-12, and higher education. We include a specific focus on career history and theories, to prepare students for both the counseling environment and for national exams leading to certification and licensure, such as the (NCE) National Counseling Exam. We also include cutting edge research on contemporary topics, including such areas as: military careers, life after the military, individuals with disabilities or special needs, career counseling in our current socio-economic environment, and current technologies such as virtual counseling. In addition, we have added case studies and key terms as study guides at the end of each chapter. We are fortunate to include many recognized experts in the field of career counseling. Career Counseling Across the Lifespan: Community, School, Higher Education, and Beyond is a comprehensive text, written to address the broad needs of career counselors, educators, and students today.
Unique in its dual focus on emotion and lifespan development, this text weaves together theory, research, and practical clinical implications for fostering children's emotional well-being. The author examines how emotions are experienced, expressed, understood, and regulated from infancy through later adulthood, surveying both typical and atypical development. For each stage, chapters highlight the interrelated influences of temperament, neurobiology, and the social environment, and distinguish universal processes from those that vary across cultures. The book presents current knowledge about specific emotions, probes the causes and consequences of emotional maladjustment, and reviews evidence-based and promising interventions. Innovative methods, examples, and meta-analyses are described; key terms are defined within chapters and in an end-of-book glossary.
Anchored in the CACREP accredication standards, this third book in the Counseling and Professional Identity series provides counselors and human service professionals with a solid foundation to understand lifespan/developmental theory and apply these constructs to clients in counselling at various stages.
