Overview

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.

    This is a wonderful book for all Mental Health Counselors who are highly interested in helping and understanding thier client :)

    This book was required for the course in Human Growth and Development. I have enjoyed the authors'simplicity of using vocabulary that is understood and comprehensive for students who are willing to read about human development. A worthwhile textbook!
