For Career Counseling courses in Counseling or Psychology departments, or Career Development courses. Organized around the competencies required by the National Career Development Association, this concise, practical text examines the process of career counseling and techniques for helping clients make appropriate occupational decisions. The authors take a holistic, lifespan approach to their subject, defining career counseling as the process by which a counselor works collaboratively with clients/students to help them clarify, specify, implement, and adjust to work-related situations, challenges, and changes. Such targeted coverage makes this volume ideal as a stand-alone text for a course that does not address underlying career counseling theories, or a valuable supplement to a comprehensive text.
