Don't miss this chance to participate in role-plays and case studies, and continue to learn about working more effectively with clients.
Do you ever feel like your counseling techniques need a little updating? Do you tend to default to “fixing the problem,” instead of slowing the process down to unpack the issues and really engage your student/client? Attend this seminar to learn about and practice more advanced career counseling methods that can make everyday interactions with clients more fruitful.
In this engaging and interactive seminar, participants will:
- Briefly review theoretical frameworks and concepts to support career counseling interventions
- Analyze cases and practice role playing to more fully address contextual concerns of clients
- Focus on the counseling aspects of career counseling to help clients move forward
