College Student Development
Here is a book that provides college counselors and therapists with some of the most important developmental perspectives needed in today's work with students. Too often, counseling centers are seen only as emotional rehabilitators. Yet, College Student Development illustrates the importance of developmental knowledge in terms of how students’personal histories, including cultural influences in their lives, interact to determine the dilemmas and challenges facing them and all those who work on college and university campuses today.
This is the only book available today which bridges the span between university counseling centers and student development (deans') offices. It offers specific frameworks for understanding counseling work in developmental terms. The presentation early in the book of a student development metamodel for counseling center professionals provides a strong base for understanding the other topics addressed in the book. It is a solid bridge for counselors in college and university settings dedicated to helping students develop into secure and confident adults in their public, interpersonal, and private lives.
This multi-authored book has many chapters that show counselors how to work together with students to gather clues and reach important realizations to make long-term and lasting changes in their lives. Case examples and histories throughout the book make its theories easily applicable to all counseling centers at colleges and universities. Among the development theory topics counselors will discover are:
