Lifestyle Changes: A Clinician's Guide to Common Events, Challenges, and Options

More About This Textbook

Overview

Change is inevitable, and each person handles each event differently, some with more difficulty than others. In Lifestyle Changes, psychologist Vera Maass draws on 25 years of practice experience - and a lifetime filled with changes, growth, and challenges - to present a clinician's guide to working with clients who are facing a fundamental change in their lifestyle. Each chapter explores a different event and its potential impacts on the client's current lifestyle, focusing on positive ways to respond and adapt to the situation. Through a mix of case examples, personal vignettes, sample clinician/client dialog, and engaging language, Lifestyle Changes provides an accessible and practical resource for practitioners that maximizes the potential for positive growth out of each experience.
