Description

For courses in Career Counseling in both Counseling and Psychology departments. Organized around the National Career Development Association's competencies, this practical, engaging text examines the full spectrum of state-of-the-art career development topics. Coverage focuses squarely on the application of interventions with real people, using straightforward presentations and cases studies to expose students to all of the essential competencies required for the professional practice of career counseling. The authors' respect for their field, and their long-standing commitment to educating students about career development theory and practice creates a readable, useful, interesting text that addresses the wide diversity of career counseling clients and counselors in today's society, while emphasizing that careers develop over time, rather than in a single "enlightened" moment.show more
