Description 

The only textbook explicitly designed to address counseling with adults who are coping with individual, relationship, and work transitions, this volume integrates the basic tenets of adult development with therapeutic practice. It is based on Schlossberg's theory of transitions, a new process and content model that offers effective techniques for helping adults to understand and successfully navigate normal life transitions.

This revised edition addresses contemporary societal ills that exacerbate adult life transitions, such as a tumultuous economy, increased unemployment, bankruptcies, and foreclosures, and focuses on our increasing racial and cultural diversity. The volume also expands its consideration of spiritual and social justice issues and provides a more integrated and holistic approach to adult transitional counseling.

Key Features of the New Edition:

  • Based on Schlossberg's technique, a new model for counseling adults in transition
  • Offers practical new strategies and exercises for use in transitional counseling
  • Addresses unemployment and coping in an uncertain social/economic context
  • Focuses on loss and resilience, diversity, culture, social justice, and spirituality
  • Contains new sections on transitioning to adulthood, living arrangements including diverse family structures, mobility, siblings, in-laws, and retirement
  • Introduces new concepts such as collectivist coping, hardiness, mindfulness, and transcendence

Aging with Panache—Mikhail Baryshnikov Shows the Way

I watched Mikhail Baryshnikov dance at the 2010 Ringling Museum International Festival. He came onto a plain stage with nothing but a screen.

You saw three dancers-the younger, the older and the shadow. Now 62, he no longer leaps in the air but he still... Read More
