In response to the complexities of social change that have become evident in the 21st century, there is a need for innovation in career theory that takes into account new perspectives and the fluctuating contexts of people’s lives. Contemporary Theories of Career Development: International Perspectives brings together the contributions of theorists from around the globe whose work represents current, cutting-edge international approaches to career development theory. Emphasizing the new perspectives that are needed for this field to be relevant in a contemporary era, this book considers the cultural applications of theory in a diverse range of populations. Structured in three parts with chapters written by internationally renowned leaders in the field, this collection features a critical examination of the current history of the field; thirteen theory chapters, each enhanced by a case study; and a final chapter that draws the previous chapters together through key themes, broadening the reader’s knowledge of theoretical perspectives and their interrelations. Each theory chapter author comments on and critiques his or her own theory, inviting readers to engage with these theories at both a practical and theoretical level through the case studies. Detailed, with reader-friendly descriptions and supplemented by international research, case examples, and discussion questions, Contemporary Theories of Career Development: International Perspectives is the ideal reference work for students studying the topic as well as a stimulus for researchers and practitioners looking to implement the theories in their work.

The Systems Theory Framework was developed to produce a metatheoretical framework through which the contribution of all theories to our understanding of career behaviour could be recognised. In addition it emphasises the individual as the site for the integration of theory and practice. Its utility has become more broadly acknowledged through its application to a range of cultural groups and settings, qualitative assessment processes, career counselling, and multicultural career counselling. For these reasons, the STF is a very valuable addition to the field of career theory. In viewing the field of career theory as a system, open to changes and developments from within itself and through constantly interrelating with other systems, the STF and this book is adding to the pattern of knowledge and relationships within the career field. The contents of this book will be integrated within the field as representative of a shift in understanding existing relationships within and between theories. In the same way, each reader will integrate the contents of the book within their existing views about the current state of career theory and within their current theory-practice relationship. This book should be required reading for anyone involved in career theory. It is also highly suitable as a text for an advanced career counselling or theory course. The first edition of this book appeared under the title Career Development and Systems Theory: A New Relationship. Reviewers' comments on the first edition: ."a thought provoking addition to career development literature." Canadian Journal of Counselling ."a landmark in the field of career development." Australian Journal of Career Development ."it is written in an admirable clear and concise style." British Journal of Guidance and Counseling

A hallmark of career development and counseling is exploring various career options throughout life. With the rapid changes in the work world, from globalisation of the workforce to technological developments the process of career exploration has evolved and continues to change. The first chapter in this book reviews the theories and research regarding career development and barriers to career exploration, including personal variables and relationships, challenges to exploring careers as well as resources available to aid in the career exploration process. Chapter two focuses upon the influence of opportunity structures in shaping individual career development. Chapter three provides valuable new knowledge and insights relevant to career development theory that could potentially inform human resource practices aimed at promoting change-supportive and adaptive behaviours in a knowledge-driven economy and society. Chapter four studies career counseling for people in psychosocial situations of vulnerability and flexicurity. Chapter five applies concepts of emotional intelligence, emotional labour (EL) and career adaptability (CA) to explore how these variables may relate to kindergarten teachers avoidance of professional burnout and their ability to cope with career challenges. The last chapter reviews the historical background and theoretical development of the feedback construct in the broader social sciences, proposes a definition of career-related feedback applicable to young adults, critically reviews the literature on the construct of career-related feedback in the context of goal-oriented theories, and, finally, explores the practical implications for career practitioners who work with young adults.

When the first edition of Career Choice and Development was published in 1984, it brought together the most current ideas of the recognized authorities in the field of career development. Now in its third edition, this classic bestseller has been thoroughly revised and expanded to include the most up-to-date information and research.This completely revised edition examines four newly emerging theories of career choice and development. Two of the new theories are based in learning theory, one is a values-based holistic model, and the fourth emerges from constructivist philosophy. In a compelling effort to ground these theories in practice, the contributors tell how they would apply their individual theories to a single client. The variations and similarities of the application of the theories reflect the wide range of perspectives offered in this important new resource. The information presented in this edition will challenge teachers, researchers, and those involved in fostering career development to reexamine their assumptions and practices.In twelve chapters, written expressly for this book, the renowned contributors explore a broad range of career development topics, including the reasons people choose their careers; how changes, interests, and skills occur throughout the life cycle; how people do or do not change and adapt to their careers; and much more. In addition, the book describes how to tailor this knowledge to the particular needs of clients from varied backgrounds, stages of life, and occupational levels.Career Choice and Development is a practical guide for administrators and managers who oversee career development programs and for practitioners who provide direct career counseling and planning services. The book is also a valuable tool for psychologists, sociologists, and organizational development specialists who study and teach career development.

Grafton Eliason, Mark Lepore, Jeff Samide, and John Patrick, from California University of Pennsylvania and Clarion University of Pennsylvania.

The book will examine some of the field's major theories, themes, approaches, and newest models incorporating chapters from national and international career counseling experts. Specific emphasis is spent examining issues reflective of today's challenges in developing and maintaining a workforce that is diverse, flexible, and efficient. Readers will be provided with an action-based framework built on the best available research. This text book is truly the culmination of a decade’s work, compiling comprehensive studies from four previous volumes and updating key concepts in career counseling with the most contemporary theories and innovations. We examine three primary domains of career counseling throughout all of the developmental stages of the lifespan: community, schools K-12, and higher education. We include a specific focus on career history and theories, to prepare students for both the counseling environment and for national exams leading to certification and licensure, such as the (NCE) National Counseling Exam. We also include cutting edge research on contemporary topics, including such areas as: military careers, life after the military, individuals with disabilities or special needs, career counseling in our current socio-economic environment, and current technologies such as virtual counseling. In addition, we have added case studies and key terms as study guides at the end of each chapter. We are fortunate to include many recognized experts in the field of career counseling. Career Counseling Across the Lifespan: Community, School, Higher Education, and Beyond is a comprehensive text, written to address the broad needs of career counselors, educators, and students today.
