Description: Career Theory and Practice: Learning Through Case Studies, Second Edition , provides the reader with hands-on, practical examples of how to apply career development theories to career counseling clients. This book serves as that bridge between theory and practice. Woven through the chapters is the presentation of "Leslie," a fictitious client, actually the composite portrait of several past clients. As each chapter focuses on a different career development theory and presents specific cases, the authors enhance the practical slant of their work by applying the theories discussed to "Leslie," as well as to a second case unique to each chapter. The second edition includes a new chapter highlighting the importance of various types of assessment in career counseling, and addressing the role of ethics and professional issues. In addition, new pedagogical features include "Counselor Cognitions" to guide hypotheses about clients, and "Personal Reflections" to facilitate the application of material to students own career development. The second edition also includes added material that highlights the role of the economy and the changing nature of the workforce that influence the career and work decisions individuals make. Swanson and Fouad bring their own experiences as practitioners, researchers, and teachers in their approach to writing this new edition. This book is intended for students in graduate level career or vocational psychology or career practicum courses as well as counseling practitioners needing additional resources to strengthen their services or expand their focus.
