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 you to update and expand your existing knowledge and skills. Useful for counselors-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. In-depth descriptions of techniques and assessment procedures that emphasize career counseling strategies are provided throughout the book-these practical strategies are designed specifically to assist clients in reaching their goals and resolving their concerns.
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.
