Designed to help readers apply career development theories to their work with career counseling clients, Career Theory and Practice: Learning Through Case Studies links major career development and choice theories to a fictional case client. Authors Jane L. Swanson and Nadya A. Fouad use this case study approach throughout the book to provide an integrative thread that illustrates similarities and differences between the featured theories. The Third Edition has been updated and substantially expanded to be a primary text for a graduate course in Career Development and Counseling. “Jane L. Swanson and Nadya A. Fouad do a masterful job of bringing theory to life through the lived stories of actual career clients. I very much appreciated the book’s format, the examples, the discussion questions, and the richly developed case examples.” —Mary J. Heppner, University of Missouri, Columbia, commenting on the First Edition “The case study method is very effective. Students can see firsthand how the theories are interpreted and applied. Often they get a better understanding of their own lives and career history.” —Anne Zachmeyer, Rochester Institute of Technology “Theory discussion is complete and usable for students; the quality of the text is strong.” —Meredith J. Drew, Centenary College

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 studentsÆ 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.

Career Development and Systems Theory: Connecting Theory and Practice offers practitioners, researchers and students a comprehensive introduction to, and overview of, career theory; introduces the Systems Theory Framework of career development; and demonstrates its considerable contemporary and innovative application to practice. A number of authors have identified the framework as one of a small number of significant innovations in the career development literature. The Systems Theory Framework of career development was developed to provide coherence to the career development field by providing a comprehensive conceptualisation of the many existing theories and concepts relevant to understanding career development. It is not designed to be a theory of career development; rather systems theory is introduced as the basis for an overarching, or metatheoretical, framework within which all concepts of career development, described in the plethora of career theories, can be usefully positioned and utilised in both theory and practice. It has been applied to the career development of children, adolescents and women. Since its first publication, the Systems Theory Framework has been the basis of numerous publications focusing on theoretical application and integration, practice and research, with a growing number of these by authors other than the framework developers. Its application across cultures also has been emphasised. The theoretical and practical unity of the Systems Theory Framework makes this book a worthy addition to the professional libraries of practitioners, researchers and students, new to, or experienced in, the field of career development.

The Handbook of Vocational Psychology aims to identify, report, and evaluate significant developments in vocational psychology and career counseling, thus providing both professional clinicians and students with an informed understanding of both the current state and continuing progress in the field. Like the previous editions, the goal of the Fourth edition will be to join the theory, research, practical and applied aspects of this field. The Handbook's dual missions are to prepare current students for the realities of work and also to act as a reference resource for practicing clinicians (and academicians) of all levels of experience, to keep up to date with the latest research and trends. The fourth edition will be completely restructured into four sections covering, in order, the field's History, Theory, Research, and Practice issues. The majority of the chapters in this new volume will be written by newly invited contributors, with the result that the book will be almost entirely brand new content, while a couple of authors in the 3rd edition will remain on board and update their previous chapter.
