"A rich and very up to date text, written from a diversity of perspectives that is challenging and accessible at the same time. Would be quite intellectually stimulating for the beginner graduate student." OR... "...it presents a very multicultural approach which is in keeping with the philosophy of counseling programs that have a committemnt to issues of diversity. Gives the reader a good basic overview of past development theories and offers challenges to our past understanding of the lifespan. It is broad and deep at the same time. The nontraditional approach is refreshing and long awaited."
"The strength of the proposed text lies in the topic coverage and reflective questions introduced to the reader throughout. The author has paid great attention to the detail and contextual description associated with the relational-cultural model. The current manuscript offers a clear departure in thought and professional development through the integrative nature of the relational-cultural model."
