The wellness paradigm is regarded as one of the cornerstones of the counseling profession. Using a developmental perspective, this presentation will examine how attitudes about aging impact counselor and client wellness. The presenters will review existing research on the relationship between age perception and well-being (e.g. Levy's stereotype embodiment theory), introduce original findings related to wellness and age perception, and discuss implications for counselor education.
