Book Description

This undergraduate psychology text acknowledges the diverse backgrounds and learning styles of students by blending Adlerian "tasks of life" with the developmental psychology of Adler, Catalano, Dreikurs, Erikson, Fowler, Fromm, Gilligan, Hoffberger, Kierkegaard, Kohlberg, Levinson, Maslow, May, Piaget, Rogers, Sekkaran and Sternberg. Each chapter examines one of life's greatest adventures and offers the wisdom and advice of psychologists and counsellors most familiar with that aspect of life. Chapters cover adventures such as birth, loss, loving, leaving, growing up, growing old, children who succeed and fail, stagnant and fulfilling careers, faith, despair and crisis and transformation. Reflection questions precede each chapter to stimulate class discussion.
