Publisher Comments:

The Sixth Edition of Career Guidance and Counseling Through the Lifespan provides comprehensive treatment of career development theory and practice in a world of work undergoing profound change.

  • Discusses the applications of systematic and planned approaches to career guidance and counseling for children, youth, and adults, in various settings: schools, colleges, and universities, business and industry, and community agencies.
  • Offers superior emphasis on the applications of career counseling and guidance to different and special needs populations including African-Americans, Hispanics, other culturally diverse populations, males, females, children and adolescents, adults with mental health problems in the workplace, midcareer job changers, the unemployed, dual career families, persons with work/family conflicts, and burned out workers.
  • Includes expanded treatment of international perspectives on changes in the occupational structure, work, and career interventions.
  • Includes expanded treatment of the school-to-work transition and work-based learning as legislative initiatives and as important factors shaping career relevant schooling, transition services, and the transition and adjustment to work.
