These practical strategies are demonstrated with a wide spectrum of client developmental task difficulties in occupational, social, and family functioning.

The book makes significant contributions to the expanding fields of both clinical lifespan developmental psychopathology and cognitive therapy. It serves as an excellent reference and practical guide for mental health professionals in psychology, psychiatry, social work, and other disciplines.
