Summary

Richard Sharf goes beyond simply presenting theory to show the reader how to apply the principles in a counseling setting, making this book useful for both practicing counselors and counselors in training. Sharf covers three major theoretical areas (trait and type, life-span, and special-focus theories) in Parts I-III, then discusses theoretical integration in Part IV, with each theory providing a unique perspective on career development. The book also offers numerous case examples, discusses career assessment from a practical and theoretical perspective, and integrates labor-market information with career theory. The book has received praised for Sharf's clear writing style, useful case examples, and integrated coverage of diversity.
