Developmental Counseling

This course examines the psycho-bio-social tasks in human developmental stages through the life span from a culturally responsive counseling perspective. Developmental counseling recognizes there are normative patterns of human development that can be impacted by a range of contextual variables--for example, abuse and neglect. Understanding development is important when assessing client functioning and in designing developmentally appropriate helping strategies.
