Description

Thousands of readers have used the honest and inspiring I NEVER KNEW I HAD A CHOICE: EXPLORATIONS IN PERSONAL GROWTH, now in its Tenth Edition, to focus on their personal growth and effect personal change. Through their warm yet thoroughly research-based discussion of significant dimensions of life, Corey and Corey help students expand their awareness--and understanding--of the choices available to them. The text explores choosing a personal style of learning, the effects of childhood and adolescence experiences on current behavior, meeting the challenges of adulthood and autonomy, and many other issues related to personal growth and development. As they work through the text's self-inventories, exercises, and activities--and read first-person accounts of the difficult choices real people have made--students will gain insight into their lives, beliefs, and attitudes in a personally empowering way.
