Career Counseling aims to link the past and the present, and to look to the future for significant developments in this critical field. Seven current methods are examined in detail:
* the Trait-and-Factor approach
* the Person-Centered approach
* the Psychodynamic approach
* the Developmental approach
* the Social Learning approach
* the Social Psychological approach
* Computer Assisted Career Counseling
Written to inform practicing vocational counselors and students about the practical and applied aspects of various counseling approaches, this book will help them maintain a data-based objectivity.
"…the strength of the volume lies in the authors' attempts to update traditional career counseling models and integrate them with recent advances in psychology, particularly in the area of information processing."
