Effective adult counseling depends on a successful integration of empirical knowledge and theory with practice. Such a framework continues to be made explicit in this updated third edition of Counseling Adults in Transition, a practical guide for students, teachers, counselors, and all other helping professionals.

In the decade since the second edition of this book, the pace of change has accelerated, and the world has become more complex. This new edition expands upon areas which have gained increased attention in recent years:

Cultural diversity Spirituality in the lives of today's adults Advocating on behalf of clients Teaching clients advocacy skills

The authors show how knowledge of adult development can be fruitfully integrated with essential helping skills. The resulting process-and-content model contains practical techniques for helping adults explore the important factors in their situations, understand what is normal about adulthood and life transitions, and enhance their abilities for successful coping. In addition, a special appendix written by Dr. Schlossberg has been added. This appendix on non-events encompasses practical suggestions and exercises for helping adults navigate life's disappointments and disillusionments. The clear aim throughout is to achieve, maintain, or increase adults' capacities to love, work, and play.
