Description

The latest edition of this bestseller presents a holistic, strengths-based, and
theoretically sound model of career development and the career counseling
process that will help counselors and psychologists to update and expand their
existing knowledge and skills. Useful for professionals-in-training and
experienced clinicians, the career counseling process outlined in this text is both
practitioner-friendly and effective with clients of all ages and circumstances.
Practical strategies designed specifically to assist clients in reaching their goals
and resolving their concerns are presented throughout the book.
Significant attention is placed on expanding the career options and
empowering the life choices of women; men; racial and ethnic minorities; gay,
lesbian, bisexual, and transgender clients; clients from diverse socioeconomic
backgrounds; and individuals with disabilities. Additional topics discussed
include traditional and postmodern career theories and approaches, forming a
productive alliance with the client, effective use of assessment inventories and
instruments, helping clients respond to changes in the workplace and family
life, working with resistant clients, developing client action plans, and
bringing closure to the career counseling process. A new chapter titled ''Using
Social Media in Career Counseling'' rounds out this exceptional publication.
