Book Excerpt : This book emphasizes theories in career development (most books for this course emphasize practice and applications and follow only one method or many components of methods). Each theory gives insight into various perspectives on career development as it affects career counseling, and the theories organize facts into a comprehensible system for students to understand and use, rather than overwhelming them with unrelated lists of information. Each theory is discussed in terms of its implications for using occupational information, for using tests, and for special issues which may affect application of the theory. Case examples with sample dialogue show how the theories have been applied, helping students directly relate career theory and research to the practice of counseling.
