The fifth edition of this authoritative text continues to provide expert guidance for counseling professionals working with adults who are coping with individual, relationship, and work transitions. Abundantly updated with new literature and resources, the book examines the most pressing life transition issues facing today's adults. It incorporates new and emerging theories and culturally sensitive strategies for counseling diverse clients, along with new case studies providing examples and practical applications. The fifth edition sheds light on the particular challenges of populations who may feel disempowered and marginalized, allowing for a deeper understanding of transition theory.

Key themes include enhancing resilience and coping, illuminated by updated literature and discussion of applications of Schlossberg's theory and 4 S model--a model that offers effective techniques to understand and successfully navigate life transitions. Also addressed are the roles of hope, optimism, and mattering. The text deepens the discussion of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and social justice, along with intersectionality regarding multiple identities as diverse individuals and their families navigate life transitions. It also highlights the role of escalating changes in the current global, political and socio-cultural landscape. Purchase includes digital access for use on most mobile devices or computers.
