College Student Development from the Author: Leighton C. Whitaker. Here is a book that provides college counselors and therapists with some of the most important developmental perspectives needed in today's work with students. Too often, counseling centers are seen only as emotional rehabilitators. Yet, College Student Development illustrates the importance of developmental knowledge in terms of how students’personal histories, including cultural influences in their lives, interact to determine the dilemmas and challenges facing them and all those who work on college and university campuses today. This is the only book available today which bridges the span between university counseling centers and student development (deans') offices. It offers specific frameworks for understanding counseling work in developmental terms. The presentation early in the book of a student development metamodel for counseling center professionals provides a strong base for understanding the other topics addressed in the book. It is a solid bridge for counselors in college and university settings dedicated to helping students develop into secure and confident adults in their public, interpersonal, and private lives. This multi-authored book has many chapters that show counselors how to work together with students to gather clues and reach important realizations to make long-term and lasting changes in their lives. Case examples and histories throughout the book make its theories easily applicable to all counseling centers at colleges and universities. Among the development theory topics counselors will discover are: Changing Student Culture and Implications for Counselors and Administrators Typical Development in the College Years Survey Results of Undergraduate Concerns Special Aspects of College Student Development for African-Americans Male and Female Differences in College Student Development College Student Development is most appropriate for staff members of counseling and development offices. Professors and students in master's and doctorate level counseling psychology and student development programs and college student development courses (developmental theory) will find this an enlightening approach to helping college students.

Critical Perspectives On Student Development Theory from the Author: Abes. The use of critical and post-structural theories, such as critical race theory, intersectionality, and queer theory, to explore student development is relatively new. Most current research looks beyond the individual to how systems of oppression, such as racism, ableism, and heterosexism mediate student development and the nature of student development theory. This volume offers some of the most contemporary thinking about student development by: reviewing recent critical post-structural scholarship; offering new possibilities for using theoretical lenses; and translating these theories into student affairs practice. This is the 154th volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly series. An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.
