Foundations of Career Counseling: A Case-Based Approach is designed for students taking courses in career counseling. Additionally, a full chapter is dedicated to the career development of students seeking graduate degrees in counseling.
Develop understanding of both theory and technique using i n-depth, engaging case studies.
Rather than simply describing career development theories, Foundations of Career Counseling: A Case-Based Approach uses seven realistic, diverse client scenarios to help students connect with the material and master career counseling content and skills. Balancing both theory and application, chapters about the career counseling process, intake interviews, and the use of tests, card sorts, and resources contain transcripts, examples, and sample assessment results from simulated sessions with these fictional clients. Suzanne Dugger’s down-to-earth writing style clearly explains complex concepts in everyday language. Future counselors will develop a thorough understanding of both theory and technique pertaining to career development interventions with children and young adults as well as with adults–including specific populations such as persons with disabilities, military veterans, ex-offenders, homemakers and caretakers transitioning back into the world of work–and even themselves!
Personalize learning with MyCounselingLab®
MyCounselingLab® is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with the text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students see key concepts demonstrated through video clips, practice what they learn, test their understanding, and receive feedback to guide their learning and ensure they master key learning outcomes.
During her 25 years as a counselor educator, Dr. Suzanne Dugger has been recognized for her teaching, advising, scholarship, and service to her college, university, and profession. In addition to her experiences as a counselor educator, Dr. Dugger has also provided counseling services and career development support in K-12, college, and private practice settings. These broad and varied experiences have allowed her to develop a book that thoroughly addresses career development and counseling practices in K-12, college, and community settings. She is one of those very rare individuals who is able to create and maintain a nurturing classroom environment while demanding a very high level of performance from her students. Such a balance is evident in this book where a high level of readability is accompanied by a thorough and careful treatment of the content.
