"Jane L. Swanson and Nadya A. Fouad do a masterful job of bringing theory to life through the lived stories of actual career clients. I very much appreciated the book′s format, the examples, the discussion questions, and the richly developed case examples."
―Mary J. Heppner, University of Missouri, Columbia, commenting on the First Edition
"As far as the content of the text goes, it ROCKS! The case studies keep it very engaging along with the exercises. This is the first text I′ve ever used that truly engaged the reader and wasn′t a forced read. Thank you!"
Designed to help readers apply career development theories to their work with career counseling clients, Career Theory and Practice: Learning Through Case Studies links five major career development and choice theories to a fictional case client, "Leslie." Authors Jane L. Swanson and Nadya A. Fouad use this case study approach throughout the book to provide an integrative thread that illustrates similarities and differences between the featured theories. Thoroughly updated, the Second Edition also extends the use of the First Rdition′s effective hypothesis-strategy feature and includes an entirely new chapter on assessment.
Career Theory and Practice: Learning Through Case Studies, Second Edition, is intended as a core or supplementary text for graduate-level students in career or vocational psychology courses, as well as for career practicum courses. It is also appropriate for use by counseling practitioners as an additional resource to strengthen and expand their services.
The text is supported by Instructors Resources on CD, which includes the following:
