COUN 552 - Developmental Theories and Applications


3 Credits
An overview of human development throughout the lifetime in the family, social and cultural context. The individual and family lifecycles are viewed as mutually interactive processes that are also affected by such factors as biology/genetics, gender, race, ethnicity, acculturation and religion. The development of the individual is traced chronologically through a survey of a select number of major theoretical approaches. At the same time, the course explores factors influencing development such as developmental tasks, family and cultural context. This exploration serves as a backdrop for client assessment and case conceptualization. All curricula and learning outcomes focus on the development of proficiency in knowledge, skills, attitudes/values and the behavioral outcomes necessary for excellence in clinical practice. 
Prerequisite(s): COUN 541 - Skills and Techniques in Counseling
