'œJane 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.'Â Â                                -Mary J. Heppner, University of Missouri, Columbia , commenting on the First Edition "As far as the content of the text goes, it ROCKS! The case studies keep it very engaging along with the exercises. This is the first text I've ever used that truly engaged the reader and wasn't a forced read. Thank you!" - Student Designed to help readers apply career development theories to their work with career counseling clients, Career Theory and Practice: Learning Through Case Studies links five major career development and choice theories to a fictional case client, 'œLeslie.' Authors Jane L.
