Understanding Life Transitions

Understanding Life Transitions_x000D_
Personal transformation comes from self-awareness, more specifically how you navigated developmental tasks from infancy through adulthood and how these life transitions impact you still to this day. In order to appreciate the struggles of your clients and how to ethically intervene, it is important to first look inward on your own life experiences. Identity and worldviews are shaped by the choices that were made throughout developmental stages as well as the choices you continue to make. Evaluating and analyzing challenges at different periods of your life will aid you in gaining a better understanding of and provide a framework for your work with diverse clients._x000D_
