Due to the increasing demand for career guidance in recent years, career counsellors have been challenged to modernise their practice. As a response to the rapidly changing world of work, with more diverse client groups and more complex and challenging issues facing career counsellors, the field has moved strongly towards the greater adoption of constructivist approaches. The 2nd edition of this ground breaking book is a forward-looking guide, giving further insight into the constructivist approach for the 21st century by: providing a theoretical background to constructivism; alerting readers to a range of cultural considerations related to constructivist career counselling; outlining a range of constructivist approaches to career counselling; providing examples of practical applications of the constructivist approaches presented in the book; and assisting career counsellor educators, practitioners and students understand and implement constructivist approaches into their work. With contributions from an internationally recognised panel of authors from ten different countries, Career Counselling: Constructivist Approaches treats career as a holistic concept in which work and personal life are inseparably intertwined, and individuals as experts in their own lives and in actively constructing their careers. Structured into four logical sections, this 2nd edition attests to the ongoing influence of constructivism internationally and the continued development and refinement of constructivist approaches to career counselling. Career Counselling: Constructivist Approaches is essential reading for career counsellor educators, practitioners, researchers and students who want a refreshing insight into constructivist career counselling.

The average 21st-century career is one of constant change: an individual can no longer expect to remain with one organisation his or her entire life, achieving managerial status through natural progression. Today's job market requires constant re-training and adjustment because of skills obsolescence, age discrimination and technological illiteracy. On the other hand, younger or less qualified workers find it difficult to enter the labour market because of a lack of skills or experience. Career counsellors should be able to help clients to navigate this difficult and changing role. The book offers a practical framework within which the career counsellor can work. The text explains the role of the career counsellor within the organisation; discusses the key concepts that influence career behaviour; explains the use of counselling and guidance tools and techniques; offers insight into the profession and practice of career counselling; and provides guidance within an international and a South African context. Integrating theoretical and practical perspectives, this book offers a comprehensive overview of career counselling and guidance services, practices, tools and techniques in an organisational context. It consists of five chapters, each of which has a summary, key terms and review an discussion questions.

Current career counselling needs a shift away from the practice of modern counselling approaches, and narrative therapy is likely to be particularly appropriate, since it is part of the culture and way of life of the majority of our clients. For the very first time, current approaches have been brought together in one publication. Eminent scholars, including Larry Cochran, Mark Savickas, and Norm Amundson, Paul Hartung and John Winslade, contributed to the publication. Personal narratives of some exceptionally eminent people, including Robert Sternberg are also included. The publication is concluded by Reuven Bar-On and Maurice Elias, who delineate the connection between storied counselling and social and emotional learning. This book provides a priceless resource for scholars, academics, researchers, psychologists, teachers and clients. It critically analyses germane questions, such as "How vital and feasible is it to build on life stories in career counselling?" examines the theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of hermeneutic-narrative, postmodern and constructivist approaches to career counselling provides practical guidelines on the practice of narrative counselling in different contexts presents ideas on how to engage clients actively suggests ways of using life story counselling (including the Career-Story Interview) to produce new identities for career practice Professor Kobus Maree (Editor) is Professor in Educational Psychology at the Pretoria University (UP) and Editor of the SA Journal of Psychology. Internationally acknowledged for his work in career counselling, he has received a number of awards for his work. "This book inspires hope that making meaning is empowering, illuminating and develops the self, especially with regard to career and life choices" (Birgit Schreiber, Journal for Psychology in Africa). "Not since Cochran's landmark book ... has there been such a solid effort to advance the narrative approach. Maree should be thanked for a modest approach that may well prove to be monumental" (Chris Briddick, Counselling Today). "The book presents us with a vision and offers inspiration and guidance as to how to begin some work with a student in planning to move forward by building upon looking backward within a story or narrative paradigm" (Michael Pomerantz, Gifted Education International). "Shaping the Story should be commended for addressing the relative paucity of career development approaches for different cultural groups and for the power of language and ... the contributions of emotional [and] social emotional intelligence in career development. (Anna Lichtenberg, Australian Journal of Career Development).

The primary purpose of this revision remains identical to that of the first edition--to show how key personality, cognitive/behavioral, and vocational tests/assessment procedures can be used by counselors in their work with clients. Too often, assessment books only provide the reader with information about tests and assessment procedures. They do not, however, take the next step--showing readers how these tests/assessment procedures can be used and integrated into the actual work of counseling. This revision is designed to fill that void. Chapter authors, all of whom are experts in their respective topic areas, share the theoretical and research backgrounds about a particular test/assessment procedure and then provide a case example or examples to show how assessment data can be meaningfully incorporated into the counseling process.

Counseling and Coaching in Times of Crisis and Transition explores how threats and challenges caused by rapid social and technological changes require counselors and coaches to rethink their usual ways of working, and, in some cases, even abandon their traditional theoretical anchors. The authors of this forward-thinking book argue that practitioners who aim to help others strengthen their resources can no longer afford to wait for clients in their offices or offer them protected, objective and neutral professional relationships. Contributors from around the world argue that there is a real need for new counseling and coaching actions to be delivered in different contexts: counselors and coaches should be able to use heterogeneous languages and interventions, as well as numerous relationship modalities and activities in order to streamline the support that they offer to people in sectors as diverse as health and well-being, life and career design, prevention and community inclusion, work inclusion, and schools. The book provides an evidence-based framework, with numerous counseling and coaching examples that are capable of promoting people’s strengths, whether this be face-to-face, in groups, or online. This book will appeal to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of counseling and coaching, as well as those with an interest in psychological, social and educational science. It should also be essential reading for practitioners and policymakers in a diverse range of contexts, including those working on intervention and support for vulnerable people, non-traditional and disadvantaged students, and people with disabilities.
