Human Growth & Development

Life Span Development

This course is designed for professionals who are intending to enter the counseling field. This course will help students to view their clients from a developmental perspective with the understanding that development does not take place in isolation; rather human development is deeply embedded within and inseparable from the context of family, social network, and culture. This course is also designed to help counselors recognize the importance of individual and systemic influences on human growth and development and emphasizes the role of service to others as essential to a sense of well-being and self-esteem.
