Synopsis: The first developmental book written specifically for helping professionals, The Life Span: Human Development for Helping Professionals, Second Edition, provides an in-depth look at developmental theories and how they apply to the fields of counseling, social work and psychology. Using counseling applications, case studies, special topics boxes, and journal questions, the text introduces developmental theories and research within the context of clinical practice. This edition features a new chapter on well-being in adulthood, expanded counseling applications sections, current research on developmental psychopathology and prevention science, and a book-specific companion website.  

From the Back Cover:

The first developmental textbook written specifically for helping professionals and graduate-level students, The Life Span: Human Development for Helping Professionals, Third Edition, provides an in-depth look at the science of human development and how it applies to the fields of counseling, social work and psychology. Using counseling applications, case studies, special topics boxes, and journal questions, the text introduces developmental theories and research within the context of clinical practice.

 

Written with a primary focus on linking theory and research to counseling applications, the new third edition features expanded coverage of psycholopathology in developmental context as well as added material on the latest development-related neuroscientific findings. The revised edition also provides an open access text-specific companion website that offers a full range of multimedia instructor supplements.

 

  • The depth of coverage bypasses that of other life span texts though expanded coverage of research and through clearly linking theory to real world applications.
  • The integration of culture and gender discussions throughout the text helps to introduce students to the most recent findings involving cross-cultural and cross-gender differences.
  • Extensive counseling applications sections appear in every chapter and link counseling practices directly to developmental theories. These sections, which cover topics such as incorporating touch therapy with low birth-weight infants and promoting social competence of peer rejected children, show how the latest information on developmental science can impact and inform counseling techniques and treatment plans.
  • NEW! Expanded coverage of developmental psychopathology. Special boxes called “Focus on Developmental Psychopathology” accompany specific chapters and use new research to help readers understand how deviant developmental pathways emerge. Here, issues of etiology, symptoms, and prevention supplement chapter information about normal development at various stages in life. Topics covered in this feature include pervasive developmental disorders, mood disorders, conduct disorders, and anxiety disorders.

    NEW! Revised Case Studies and Discussion questions. Updated case studies and discussion questions present realistic scenarios related to chapter topics and allow students to practice resolving issues that arise for different populations in a variety of situations and help students think critically about the clinical implications of developmental facts and theories.

  • NEW!  Expanded emphasis on neuro-scientific findings related to development.  This up-to-date material incorporatesadvances in research on brain development and physiological processes that affect development.
