Contemporary family life educators operate within a wide range of settings and with increasingly varied populations and families. In the third edition of Family Life Education, Darling and Cassidy expose readers to the diverse landscape of the field while laying a comprehensive, research-based, practical foundation for current and future family life educators. The authors, both CFLE-certified, consider the Certified Family Life Educator certification requirements of the National Council on Family Relations throughout the text. Their broad overview of the field includes a brief history and discussion of family life education as an established profession. The authors incorporate theory, research, and practice while also providing guidelines for planning, implementing, and evaluating family life education programs. Chapters on sexuality education, relationship and marriage education, and parenting education highlight some of the more prevalent and visible forms of family life education. Comments from international educators and interactive classroom exercises focus on global trends, building awareness and appreciation of diversity. Discussion questions and activities encourage readers to examine issues and apply what they have learned.

Introduction to Human Development and Family Studies is the first text to introduce human development and family studies (HDFS) as inextricably linked areas of study, giving students a complex yet realistic view of individuals and families. Pioneers of research paradigms have acknowledged that the family is one setting in which human development occurs. Moreover, in many academic programs, the lines of these two disciplines blur and much work is inherently multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary. This book helps to fortify an understanding of HDFS and subareas within it. Vignettes from current HDFS students as well as new professionals, an overview of the lifespan stage(s) within the family context, a wide description of research methods and applications, current policy issues relevant to the area, and discussions of practice/careers coupled with strategies for pursuing specializations or careers in the area are hallmarks of this textbook. Introduction to Human Development and Family Studies is essential reading for students new to the major and minor wanting to know: What is HDFS? Who are the people involved in HDFS? Why is HDFS important? How does theory and research inform work in HDFS? What does the pursuit of being an ethical professional require? What are the key areas in HDFS? Incredibly user-friendly both on the page and online, the text also features the following resources: Chapter Summaries where the main points of each chapter are pinpointed at the end of every chapter for review and study. Key Terms listed and defined within the margins of every chapter, a complete Glossary at the end of the text, and Flashcards online for additional review and study. Challenge: Integration section at the end of each chapter that underscores concepts from the chapter and draws connections between content presented in other chapters. Journal Questions to encourage reflection about the content and encourage thinking about some of the content coupled with students’ own experiences. Suggested Resources that lists relevant websites, books, articles, and video links for further study. A Closer Look at Applied Experiences Appendix outlines the internship process and shows how the internship experience can be meaningful and useful, and a Consuming Research Appendix that focuses on what it means to be a consumer of research, the knowledge and skills consumers need, and considerations for transitioning from a consumer of research to a producer of research.

Counseling Across the Lifespan expands the perimeters of counseling with its emphasis on preventive techniques for adjustment problems in the lifespan of a normal individual. This cogent work focuses on counseling intervention strategies from the unique perspective of an individual’s lifespan, placing techniques in the proper development context. By concentrating on life stages—from childhood through old age—the authors identify the nature and origin of various psychological issues such as self-identity and healthy lifestyle development in adolescents, family violence in young adults, or retirement transitions for older adults. The intervention tools needed to confront these issues are presented through succinct pedagogical features including case examples, checklists for evaluating clients, and exercises.
