“A good counseling book is timely, well researched, relevant, and readable. By this standard, Charlene Kampfe’s Counseling Older People is great. Kampfe has written an insightful and useful text that addresses the challenges, fallacies, and joys of working with older adults. She focuses on the whole person and the environment in a comprehensive and practical way. This book should be of interest to any counselor working with adults over the age of 60.”—Samuel T. Gladding, PhD, Wake Forest University “This book is a bright, shining addition to a growing body of literature on counseling older adults. It is filled with strategies for skill development, which is exactly what is needed in counseling programs in order to prepare for, arguably, the largest population on the horizon who may seek our services. If there is one book to suggest as a supplement to any course in diversity, it would be Counseling Older People.”—Catherine B. Roland, EdD, Editor, Adultspan Journal
