With a practical and straightforward approach, Essential Elements of Career Counseling focuses primarily on the practice of career counseling by exploring the basic methods, resources, and courses of action that can be applied in conducting career counseling every day. Perfect for use either as a main text or as a supplement to a more theory-based text, this book not only covers the basic techniques of developing career choice but also explores the emerging trends in the field, such as web-based counseling and the creation and use of virtual career centers online. Over the years, the authors have developed career counseling programs in an array of settings around the world that varied from secondary school systems to colleges and universities to unemployment systems to immigrant transition services. Through their experiences, they have found that whatever the context, certain basic methods apply to all quality career counseling. Essential Elements of Career Counseling is a synthesis of these universal methods that leads students through evaluation, action planning, and follow-though, and that take into account the various facets of each case such as the individual, the environmental context, the socioeconomic context, and new technology. Special Features Include: An emphasis on the process of career counseling as opposed to the theory that gives the text a robust, hands-on accessibility and that makes this book ideal as a supplement in introductory career development classes. An emphasis of web-based counseling and other internet-related resources that keep students up-to-date with emerging trends in the field. End-of-Chapter Summaries that help students to synthesis and retain what they have just read and are also ideal for quick reviews of the chapters main points. A Quick Start chapter at the beginning of the book that outlines the main themes of the book and allows students to quickly acquaint themselves with the mainstays of the books processes while linking each one to corresponding chapters in the book. Case Studies are provided throughout the text, which add real-life examples of career counseling while illustrating concepts and practices covered in the main text. An Appendix is located at the back of the book, which includes the NCDA guidelines for competency standards and ethical guidelines and which help students in the details and particulars of their counseling training.Niles, Spencer G. is the author of 'Essential Elements of Career Counseling', published 2008 under ISBN 9780131582187 and ISBN 0131582186.
