`Essential reading for student, fledgling and experienced counsellors alike' - Mark Edwards, Nurturing Potential `Beautifully written and well researched and full of useful structured exercise for therapists and clients, this is a combination of psychology textbook and counselling handbook - theoretical a, yet practical' - Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal Counselling and the Life Course introduces counsellors to the concept of the life course as a multidimensional and multidisciplinary framework for thinking about clients' lives within and beyond the counselling setting. It aims to give counsellors an understanding of human development, and how it impacts practically upon their work with clients. The book engages with the tension between, on the one hand, recognizing age and life stage as important dimensions of difference, and on the other, avoiding the pitfalls of age stereotyping and ageist discrimination. At the same time, Counselling and the Life Course shows how the concept of the life course can be used as a framework for considering the commonalities between different life stages. This provides a focus for counsellors of how to draw on their existing skills and expertise when working with clients of a different age and life stage to those with whom they generally meet. The impact of both counsellor and client age on the counselling relationship is also considered. The book includes an `Activity Trail' of structured exercises in order to encourage reflection on the concepts discussed and their relevance to clients, the readers themselves, and their counselling practice.

Occupational Therapy and Life Course Development is an invaluable work book for professional practice. It provides a tool to help both students and qualified professionals develop and enhance a framework for their practice that supports all individuals and settings in a holistic and inclusive way. Much of the book is organised as a work book based around a single case study. It includes theory related to life span development and managing change, and also exercises for readers to complete in order to apply the theory to practice. Chapters span such key topics as the client in context; life events; transition and loss; the management of stress; and planful decision making. The book emphasises how issues of life course development are as relevant to health and social care professionals as they are to their clients. A number of exercises invite readers to reflect on their own life course, and there chapters both on becoming and belonging as an occupational therapist, and on developing professional practice.
