Overview

When the first edition of Career Choice and Development was published in 1984, it brought together the most current ideas of the recognized authorities in the field of career development. Now in its third edition, this classic bestseller has been thoroughly revised and expanded to include the most up-to-date information and research.This completely revised edition examines four newly emerging theories of career choice and development. Two of the new theories are based in learning theory, one is a values-based holistic model, and the fourth emerges from constructivist philosophy. In a compelling effort to ground these theories in practice, the contributors tell how they would apply their individual theories to a single client. The variations and similarities of the application of the theories reflect the wide range of perspectives offered in this important new resource. The information presented in this edition will challenge teachers, researchers, and those involved in fostering career development to reexamine their assumptions and practices.In twelve chapters, written expressly for this book, the renowned contributors explore a broad range of career development topics, including the reasons people choose their careers; how changes, interests, and skills occur throughout the life cycle; how people do or do not change and adapt to their careers; and much more. In addition, the book describes how to tailor this knowledge to the particular needs of clients from varied backgrounds, stages of life, and occupational levels.Career Choice and Development is a practical guide for administrators and managers who oversee career development programs and for practitioners who provide direct career counseling and planning services. The book is also a valuable tool for psychologists, sociologists, and organizational development specialists who study and teach career development.
