Understanding Career Counselling: Theory, Research and Practice

Front Cover
SAGE, Apr 27, 2006 - Education - 160 pages
Understanding Career Counselling explores the theory, research, and practice of career counseling from a British perspective and brings them together in one concise volume. The book addresses exactly what is meant by the term 'career' in the 21st century and the implications this has for those working with clients at different stages of their career. This book is unique in that it clearly relates career theories to career counseling, which is often an unclear area for trainees.
