Psychology of Counseling $260.00
Editors: Annamaria Di Fabio (Department of Psychology, University of Florence, Italy)
Book Description:
"Psychology of Counseling" deals increasingly with a significant challenge related to the development of virtuous circularity between scientifically based methodological frameworks and perspectives of interventions and innovation both on theoretical and applicative levels. The present volume is characterized by a review of current theoretical perspectives, research and intervention in the field of psychology of counseling according to an international point of view.
This volume outlines potentialities and applications of psychology of counseling in different contexts and in wide-ranging international optics, such as prevention, a multicultural or colorblind approach, application of emotional intelligence in counseling, family context, adaptive counseling, clinical, therapeutic, educational context, mediation, mortgage, taking into account individual well-being and life satisfaction.
On the one hand this volume offers an overview of major theoretical perspectives for an in-depth reflection on psychology of counseling, and on the other hand could open new horizons of the discipline and new opportunities for intervention, implementing specific training for counselors to develop effective skills, especially relying on scientific recent research and intervention outcomes.
This work aims to further contribute to the study of the psychology of counseling as a discipline in constant evolution, able to identify new needs and challenges and answer effectively with innovative interventions and relation to social, economic and cultural changes of contemporary society.
