Discussion 1: Developmental Challenges in Middle Adulthood

All we know about the future is that it will be different.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Adulthood has a way of spurring a false sense of stability and predictability. For example, adults who have settled into a successful career and family routine often start each morning with a clear vision of what the day will bring. However, what happens when the unexpected happens? How do unforeseen circumstances such as a natural disaster, medical complication, car accident, layoff, an unfaithful partner, or addiction alter one’s life path and overall happiness? These are events that may lead someone to see a counselor. As such, counselors must equip themselves with a wide range of strategies and approaches that will support their adult clients as they create counseling goals and interventions.

For this Discussion, review this week’s media, “Middle Adulthood.”Focus on your assigned client in your case study family. Before crafting your post, also consider the points raised in the media, “Perspectives: Middle Adulthood.”

Post by Day 3 a conceptualization of the client that you were assigned. Then, describe two developmental challenges associated with that client. Finally, describe two potential counseling goals and two interventions you could use for the client using a wellness perspective. Justify your response with references to this week’s Learning Resources and the current literature. Be specific.
